Mad Fox Brewing Company Cask Ale Festival

Beer/spirits tasting
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Mad Fox Brewing Company's annual Cask Ale Festival features 14 beers from Virginia, Maryland and DC breweries served in the traditional English manner, without excess carbonation. (The lack of fizz makes for a more flavorful ale.) Look for the hoppy Full Nelson Pale Ale from Blue Mountain, the super-hoppy 16 Point Imperial Pale Ale from Devil's Backbone, and the Winter Storm from Baltimore's Heavy Seas brewery, which features locally grown hops in the cask. Meanwhile, chef Andrew Dixon will be grilling oysters and barbecue in the outdoor "market square." Admission is $20 and includes five food and drink tickets and a commemorative mug. (Additional tickets can be purchased for $3 each.)
