Re-cap: 1st Annual Beer Run – Annapolis, Saturday 4/20/2013

I went to the 1st Annual Beer Run/Walk in Annapolis. The run benefited the Maryland Chapter of the National MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Society, an organization that provides “critical funds to support services for people living with MS and cutting-edge research that leads to new treatments and progress toward the cure.”¹ The spring weather was cooperating on this particular day, so we had great weather for an outside event. In addition to doing a charitable act and great weather, there was beer! Literally everywhere! Along the walk route, there were stops where you could sample beers of different varieties from one of dozens of local and mainstream breweries. With the all you can drink wristband, you could sample as much as you wanted from the 30+ varieties. I must have had over 17 samples. In the midst of all the happiness that beer can generate, I was cognizant enough to take notes. Here are some products that you should try. By the way, I tried several IPAs, Porters, and Stouts. I’m not a fan, so they are not in my recommendations. Additionally, Miller Lite, Sam Adams, and Bud Light/Bud Light Lime were available, but you can get them anywhere.

  • Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat
  • Boulevard 80-acre Hoppy Wheat
  • Devil’s Backbone Vienna Lager
  • Leinie’s Summer Shandy Lemon – Really light and refreshing, like someone poured half a lemonade in your beer.
  • Abita Purple Haze – Lightly Raspberry flavored; great summer sipper
  • Avita Bold Rock – Light, crisp, mildly sweet cider
  • Starr Hill Wheat
  • Fordham Wheat
  • Gabbiano Pinot Grigio – Yes, there was wine there as well and this was light, crisp offering.

There was food available, such as burgers, dogs, and BBQ. There was live music and games for the kids (and young at heart). Break out your costume and put this on your to-do list for next year!

PS: When did it become the thing to wear costumes to walks? Walks are the equivalent of Halloween now?
