The 3rd annual Baltimore Beer Week begins today! The name itself is sort of deceptive, as the "week" will actually be 11 days of beer-themed events at bars and restaurants in the Baltimore area from today until October 16.

Things get started today at noon with a "Star-Spangled Banner" parade from Fort McHenry eventually weaving its way to Rams Head Live in Power Plant. From there, the "Opening Tap Celebration," at Rams Head from 6-9 p.m., will officially kick off the myriad of events for the next week-and-a-half.

To celebrate Baltimore Beer Week, I actually took a trip to Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, where I toured the brewery and learned more about its involvement in Beer Week events. You can view the video here. Flying Dog is proving that, while Beer Week is mostly fun, it's also a chance to give back. The brewery is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake and, tomorrow, Flying Dog staff will participate in a Habitat Build in McElderry Park. They'll end the day with a fundraiser and thank-you event at Langermann's.

That is simply one example of the countless events going on during Baltimore Beer Week. For full listings, see their website. Cheers!
