The BBG is the best resource for checking out beer in Howard County. He posts about craft beers being offered at local pales. You should also read Alex at the Beer in Baltimore blog, who has had a hand in organizing and who links to a Web site with all the events.
Alex says that the real credit for the Baltimore Beer Week:
"goes to the indefatigable Joe Gold and many other members of the BBW committee, including--in no particular order--Dominic Cantalupo, Hugh Sisson of Clipper City, Rob Kasper of the Baltimore Sun, Casey Hard of Max's, Gene Myers, Les White of the Free State Homebrewers Guild, Jim McGinty, Mick Kapp, Volker Stewart of Brewers Art, Mike McDonald of Red Brick Station, and many others, most especially the sponsors that have put up the money necessary to properly promote this event, as well as the many brewers and breweries that are stepping up to promote their products and meet their fans and consumers."
They have already lined up two Howard County locations. There must be more local beer spots that want to join!
(This post was heavily revised because I completely blew the source of the Baltimore Beer Week in my initial post. Alex stepped in with what we like to call "true information" in the comments. There is more on the Sun's Midnight Sun blog.)
