[UPDATE 2008.09.14: recap and photos.]
Stay tuned. There are many other September/October festivals to come at many other venues.
[Such as the 6 September DuClaw Real Ale Festival, which I saw mentioned on the Beer in Baltimore blog. Note that this is not the SPBW (Society for the Preservation of Beer From the Wood) Real Ale Fest, held annually in Baltimore in mid to late October. No details on that one have been posted as of yet.]
