OF THE WEEK
A suburban shopping mall isn’t a likely place to find a top-flight beer bar, but Westfield Annapolis has been a prime location for Punk’s Backyard Grill. The summery restaurant and bar, which features patio furniture and trees in its glassed-in dining room, is celebrating its third birthday on Tuesday in style: The revamped beer list features 10 drafts and more than 40 choices in bottles.
The theme for next week’s party is local beers, with all of the taps turned over to Maryland and Delaware breweries. Top choices include a version of Oliver Ales’ William’s Winter Warmer aged in bourbon barrels, Evolution Craft Brewing’s Lot #6 Double IPA and Heavy Seas Black Cannon IPA.
All-day deals (from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.) include $2 off pints and 10 percent off food.
