    My wife loves the crab cakes at Brewer’s Alley. We both grew up in Md. and when we go back we have to have crabs. This event looks amazing!

      We’re thrilled that the craft beer scene in Frederick is growing by leaps and bounds, and hoping this first Frederick Beer Week event sets the bar for the years to come. I’ll be blogging this weekend about tomorrow’s beer festival at the Stillpoint hop farm in Mt. Airy, so stay tuned! Great stuff!
