Clipper City and American Craft Beer Week

It's American Craft Beer Week, and the flu knocked me from my first event on Monday: the Spring Beer Tasting at the Hard Rock Café in Bethesda, Maryland.

As part of our celebrations, Clipper City Brewing will also be at SAVOR -- the first ever national exposition of beer and food -- both Friday and Saturday, and then at the Virginia Beer Festival in Norfolk on Saturday.

Hugh Sisson, the owner of the brewery, will be conducting a demonstration of mid-Atlantic/Chesapeake fare for the Saturday afternoon session, with the executive chef of Phillips Seafood Restaurant.

This was originally intended to feature recipes for duck, rockfish, crabs, and oysters. But, as the Mellon Auditorium --the venue for this expo on beer and food-- does not allow cooking on premises, the choices and demonstration have been limited. No cooking for a food exposition? Go figure!

Prior to the SAVOR, several DC-area beer bars and restaurants have pulled out the stops, offering special events and beer dinners. Since Clipper City Brewing is from Baltimore, I'll just mention one, home boy Max's TapHouse, which has scheduled a very large assortment of American craft beers on draft, some local, some rare:
