Takome Park Organic Beer Tasting So Successful Organizers already Planning for Next Year

beerfests102109_rgbbLast Saturday I helped organize the first, and what will now be annual, Takoma Foundation Organic Beer Tasting fundraiser.

We had organic beers on tap from Gordon Biersch and Capitol City Brewing, and more in bottles from Wolaver’s. Everything was gone by the end of the event. Organizers say about 150 people attended, which means after you add in the sponsorships, the event raised over $6,000 for local community projects.

Next year I’m looking forward to inviting a couple other local brewers to make organic beers for the event. I’d like to get Rock Bottom and Flying Dog involved. And we might have one or two new local brewpubs in operation by then so I’d like to get them to brew organic for this too. Of course, my secret hope is that they will brew organic once and then be convinced to make organic beers all the time!

Here’s more coverage from the Gazette.

    Congratulations on the festival. Cask ale drew me to Baltimore, but I’ll try to make yours next time around.
