Maryland Craft Beer Dinner with Brian Strumke of Stillwater Artisanal Ales

We are teaming up with Dawson’s Liquors in Severna Park to celebrate the best of Maryland craft beer and food. On Thursday, February 3rd we’ll be hosting a beer dinner featuring three top Maryland craft beer producers – Flying Dog Brewery (Frederick, MD), Heavy Seas Brewery (Baltimore, MD), and Stillwater Artisanal Ales (Baltimore, MD). The event will feature two beers from each producer, each paired with a dish highlighting regional Maryland cuisine, created by Punk’s Executive Chef, Dean Maupin.

The event will include a meet and greet with Stillwater Artisanal Ales owner and brewer, Brian Strumke, as well as with representatives from both Flying Dog and Heavy Seas. Brian Strumke’s innovative approach to brewing has garnered attention from national food and craft beer critics and we are currently carrying two of his beers – Existent and Cellar Door. Our Executive Chef Dean Maupin will be here to create and execute unique Maryland food to pair with each beer.

The dinner will start with a “cocktail hour” reception (featuring beer, of course) and will be followed by five unique dishes, including dessert. Representatives from each brewery will introduce and discuss each of the featured beers as they are served. Tickets for the event are $50 per person. For reservations call Punk’s Backyard Grill at 410-571-7744 or email

We’ll be releasing the beer list pretty soon, but for now you’ll just have to trust that there are going to be some real gems in the mix.  And if there is one thing we know how to do, it’s throw a party.  So I’m certain you’ll have a good time.
