    Let's use this to keep track of new bottle releases, beer events, new bars, etc.

    I'm personally on the lookout for New Belgium Le Terroir and Velvet Merkin. Let me know if you see them. If you know me, grab a bottle or two for me if possible.

    Also, Baltimore Beer Week starts October 18: http://www.baltimorebeerweek.com/ Looks like Max's will be doing some cool events as always. The BBW website is pretty shitty, but Max's should update their own website soon.

    FW 17, Velvet Merkin, and Velvet Merlin
    BCBS and variants (if any make it to MD)
    Moo Hoo and White Chocolate version
    Wake N Bake and Cinnamon Roll'd version
    Southern Charred, Crime, Punishment, Smoked Porter variants
    Narwhal,
    Bigfoot and Celebration
    Flying Dog Simcoe
    , Sorachi Single Hops, Cinnamon Porter, Vineyard Blonde

    Narwhal is out - got a 4 pack on Monday from Total Wine

    BBQ is already in VA, so it should be heading north soon


    Love that we're setting up a releases thread here! Any interest in making it DMNoVa?

    I didn't start the thread, but would rather keep it just MD. I know some people make it around to the rest of the region, but VA and DC get a lot of stuff that MD doesn't get. But that is just me. I wouldn't be against it, that is just my argument. I mean it wouldn't be bad to see what is relatively nearby, so there is that. You could just make a DCVA thread or a DNoVa thread.

    I got a few bottles of BBQ last night. They're not really on sale yet though. I also can't tell you where I got them but expect to see them in stores soon.

    Moo Hoo also came in this week.

    Any interest in me working on a Baltimore area summary with info on bars, beer stores, and breweries like bum732 did for DC?

    Do it. You should include all of Maryland though. I can help you out with Western and Montgomery county (that'll be a short ass section). There is not much on the Eastern shore so it shouldn't be too difficult. Let me know.

    hanajibu - I saw Peach Grand Cru at Perfect Pour last night. Don't recall the price, but I think it was 16$.

    Thanks, but I had it on tap at Max's for free on my birthday. Wasn't a big fan, but I'm new to Grand Cru's. Also, it seems they now have taps, so I should check that out, not that I'm going to get any there but still.

    It was actually $25. I wouldn't have bought it at that price anyways. They have the sisters but they range from $5 to $10 above the highest prices I had heard of.

    Just saw on FB that the GI "sisters" just landed at Fishpaws, along with BBQ and some others.

    I can't make it there today but will hit one or two other spots on the way home and see what they have in, and report back.

    Note the price if you will. Fishpaws is out of my way for sure (work in woodlawn, live in Rockville), but for the right price, I would swing down there.

    Has anyone seen Mikkeller Vanilla Shake around MD? I keep asking stores about it. No luck so far.

    I'll get back with the prices at the other spots. If you check the Fishpaws FB page you should see price stickers on the bottles pictured. $22-$26 depending on the beer if I remember.

    Don't have FB. I saw some 2012 Juliet for 16.99 yesterday. Thought about grabbing some since the price was right.

    Gotcha. Here's what they posted:

    Juliet $26.99
    Lolita $23.99
    Halia $24.99
    Gillian $30.99

    Gillian was pretty fuzzy in the pic.
