Our Top 10 Can't Miss Events for Baltimore Beer Week 2015

It’s time to drink some beer, Baltimore! Okay, let’s be serious. It’s always time to drink beer in Baltimore. But now is the time to celebrate beer, during Baltimore Beer Week, October 9–18. For those paying attention who haven’t had too much beer already, that is well more than what is considered one week. However, we’re not going to complain about a few extra days to enjoy suds in the city.
 
So how does one celebrate beer in Baltimore during Beer Week? Well, the obvious answer is by drinking all the beer. But there are also plenty of celebratory events to attend. There are a few tap takeovers and, of course, a crawl or two. Here’s our lineup of some of our favorite beer events around town between October 9 and 18.
 
October 9
Chilibrew IX, 7–10 PM
Zion Lutheran Church (400 E Lexington St.)
Chilibrew is a chili and homebrew competition where the attendees are the judges. Guests get to vote on the best chili con carné, vegan chili, and home-brewed beer as they nosh and sip their way through samples from 60 competitors.
Stoneleigh Lanes (6703 York Rd.)
Pinehurst Wine Shoppe and Union Brewing Company get together to start Baltimore Beer Week right with duckpin bowling (SO Baltimore) and bottomless beer, along with music from DJ BohFunk. On tap will be Duckpin, Double Duckpin, and a cask-variant Duckpin.

The tour starts at The Venice Tavern with a lesson about Baltimore's early brewing scene. The tour will then depart, pointing out along the way historical locations of breweries long forgotten, including some pub stops with Of Love and Regret as the final destination. The tour includes handouts and is a pay as you go event. RSVP at dominiccantalupo@gmail.com.
Mary Supik & Co. Taphandles (1 N Haven St.)
At the spot that makes some of the most popular tap handles in town (think DuClaw, Raven, Oliver, Fin City and more), watch tap handles being turned, sculpted, painted, and labeled. Beer makers from Raven Beer will be on hand for tastings, and door prizes will be given away.

Full Tilt and Frey’s, two local, military veteran-owned breweries, have both picked a charity to which Birroteca will be donating $1 from each of their beers sold that night, as well as a portion of the food sales.
