After the inaugural Carroll County Beer Week kicked off Monday night at Maggie's in Westminster with a book signing with Baltimore food writer Rob Kasper, the festivities continue Tuesday with a special event at Johansson's.
Johansson's brewer Jay Lampart teamed up with Westminster's Dog Brewing Co. brewer George Humbert and Baltimore beer historian Maureen O'Prey to create a locally sourced, roughly historically accurate Maryland Harvest Ale, which will be unveiled and poured for the public at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Johansson's, in Westminster.
Tuesday will also see a Raven beer happy hour from 5 to 9 p.m. at Baldwin Station in Sykesville, for those sticking to southern Carroll County.
