Drink Beer For Charity in Baltimore
Didn't get tickets to SAVOR? No sweat, the beer gods are smiling on you in the form of Santé: An Epicurean Adventure. The event, sponsored by the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland, will be held Sunday, June 13, from 3-6pm at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. Tickets are $75 advance, $85 at the door, or if you're the DD, $40. You can also splurge for a $100 ticket, which includes "premium food and beverage pairings, as well as guided tastings of rum, gin, and tequila not available at the main event." Sounds intriguing.
Santé won't have anywhere near the breadth and depth of SAVOR (although it shares a curiously similar name) in terms of beer, but there will be enough first-tier breweries on hand to make this a memorable afternoon. According to the write-up on BeerinBaltimore.com, current craft beer participants include: Allagash, Anchor, The Brewer's Art, Heavy Seas, Flying Dog, Harpoon, Lagunitas, Stillwater Artisinal Ales, Stone, Weyerbacher. And from abroad: Ayinger, Lindeman's, Orval, Pinkus Organic, Rochefort, Samuel Smith, Traquair House, Westmalle, and Zatec. Not bad.
