    Guinness Open Gate Brewery – Halethorpe – Back by popular demand, Crosslands Honey Ale is now available in cans at the brewery! This installment in our Crosslands brew series included 240 pounds of wildflower honey from local apiary, Apex Bee Company, LLC. The biscuity malts and wildflower honey come together with Loral hops for a noticeable residual sweetness. Stop by to grab your cans today!
    Hysteria Brewing – Columbia – Beer release and video game tournament tonight! Woke is our 7% Coffee Cream Ale w/ vanilla. The same coffee blend from Morning After goes into this super creamy, delicious pale beer and you’d swear you’d be drinking a great coffee stout, but you’re not, which is still confusing me. The Green Bowl serving some delicious food tonight as well! Plus it’s Community Leaders Appreciation night! $4 pints for teachers, military (veterans included), and first responders (Doctors and nurses too)! Please provide IDs.
    Idiom Brewing – Frederick – BEER RELEASE – Say hello to MILK & HONEY! This Imperial Milk Stout weighs in at 7.1% ABV and has layers upon layers of rich milk chocolate, coffee roast, sweet cream and a touch of honey in the finish. Totally delicious and dangerously deceptive! We decided to do a little last minute thing for all you lovers out there (whether it be hops, chocolate, each other or yourself)! Come in and enjoy some beer, some chocolate (Reese’s Heart, Hershey White Chocolate Hugs and Lava Cake Kisses) and a warm seat! Gambrill Mt. Food Co. will also be here for all those who didn’t make plans and still need to eat tonight too! We’ll also be doing 15% off your tab tonight, as an extra bonus! Happy V-Day!

    Nepenthe Brewing – Baltimore – Looking for a spot to drink your single blues away without having to look at couples gazing lovingly at each other over their 4 course meals for two? Come on in. It’s not Valentine’s Day here, it’s just Thursday.
    Olde Mother Brewing – Frederick – We don’t have fancy dinners or treats but we do have this Raspberry Chocolate Stout with Vanilla Bean! Not into Valentine’s Day? Come hang out with us! Need a beer after dinner? Bring your date by after your dinner plans or join us for Trivia tonight at 7:00! Sign ups start at 6:30! Shelley and Chris behind the bar tonight
    Sapwood Cellars – Columbia – DUAL BEER RELEASE – Two new beers on tap today, starting with: Cheater Hops #5. We dry hopped with hazy IPA with Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand and double-concentrated Citra “Cryo” for notes of gooseberry, melon, and citrus. We didn’t reduce the hopping rate despite the higher hop oil content, so it is our punchiest Cheater Hops to date! Isn’t it annoying when breweries use esoteric descriptors like “gooseberry”? We’ll we’ve got a variant of Cheater Hops with Cape Gooseberries on tap too! These aren’t “true” gooseberries, but they have some similar tropical-catty-green notes and acidity. They were even grown in Columbia… South America.
    Scorpion Brewing – Owings – Lil Mack’s authentic North Carolina BBQ Food Truck will be at Scorpion from 4-8pm on Thursday. Yum. Yum. Yum! (Also get a *free* chocolate pairing with your first beer as a Valentine’s treat!)
    Smoketown Brewing Station – Brunswick – Have your Valentine’s Day plans set for this Thursday? Bring your beer lovin valentine to Smoketown this Thursday for our FeBREWary celebration. We will be releasing our Big Bad Luv Oyster Stout and kick it off with a Valentine’s Day Happy Hour from 5PM-7PM with $4 pints and $5 big ass beers, followed by Valentine’s trivia from 7-9PM! Whether you’re celebrating the person you love or some self love, Smoketown is the place to be this Thursday!
    Valhalla Brewing – Elkton – HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!! Bring in your valentine and share a big ass cookie with vanilla ice cream over a great game of TRIVIA!!! Who’s smarter you or your valentine? It’s half price wing night too!! That means 1/2 off our “almost famous” smoked wings. No filter needed for these beauties. Nuff said.
