Best Baltimore Beer Week Events To Keep You Nice and Buzzed

The 10th annual festival features disc golf, movie screenings, and beer-soaked parties.

Hard to believe that it was a decade ago when friends and beer lovers Joe Gold and Dominic Cantalupo founded Baltimore Beer Week. Back in 2008, there were only three such events in the country. But it’s safe to say that the craft beer landscape, both nationally and locally, has grown exponentially.

That growth and evolution will be on full display at the 10th annual Baltimore Beer Week, which runs October 12-21 this year. Of course, there will be plenty of pub crawls, tap takeovers, beer-pairing dinners, and the like but breweries and bars have gotten more creative than ever this year.

“Dominic and I are just the marketing arm behind this,” Gold said. “Like Restaurant Week, it’s the venues who are doing all the work. They dream all of these wacky, creative things up.”

While it’s nearly impossible to choose from the hundreds of sud-soaked events throughout the city, we thought we’d narrow it down to some of the most creative and exciting beer-themed bashes this year.

The Baltimore Craft Beer Festival has grown significantly since 2015. We’d like to thank you for the continued success and the enormous impact this event has on the state’s brewing industry and the mission of the Brewers Association of Maryland. Following the 2018 festival we reviewed feedback provided online and at the event. We acknowledge that lines were troublesome and frustrating and are committed to having our guests learning about beer and enjoying the festival instead of waiting in lines.

For 2019 we will prepare for this event with a new approach to check-in and a review of the restroom allocation and layout. Look for details about new festival entrance locations and updates to the event map that will make your festival experience more comfortable and fun! We appreciate the feedback. This event would not be possible without the participation of dozens of Maryland breweries, fantastic sponsors, and the excellent craft beer enthusiasts that gather to enjoy #MDBeer in Canton.
