When I first heard about the Baltimore Craft Beer Festival last year, I thought it might not be the best idea ever.
Why would they schedule a craft beer festival right after Baltimore Beer Week?
Would this market support it, straight off of 10 days of the annual imbibing marathon?
Would they be able to differentiate themselves in some way?
The answers: Yes they could. Yes they did, and October is a great festival month. The Germans figured that out before anyone else. Thousands of craft beer enthusiasts agreed by plunking down their hard-earned beer money to show up in Canton on Saturday and sample some stunning one-off creations.
And when Maryland’s best beer comes to your front yard, you’d be best advised to go out and drink it.
