Kinda like the Twilight Zone, with beer
You're traveling to another world, a world not only of the senses, but of beer. To Frederick, Maryland, to be exact, on the inaugural run of Beer Zone Tours.
The beer junket was organized by Crozetian Paul Minnerly, who loves beer so much he grows hops in his backyard, and offers a private tour of Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick. The $75 ticket includes souvenirs, pizza, a bus ride with other hops fans and of course, beer tasting.
Minnerly dreams of other brewery tours, and has an August 22 "Brew Ridge" trail tour of Devil's Backbone lined up, fall-color tours of local breweries, and a Pennsylvania beer tour that will not include Budweiser, he notes.
The Flying Dog tour is Saturday, July 25, and rolls out at 8:50am from Beer Run and at 9:20am from Barracks Road Shopping Center in front of Greenberry's. Tickets are available at Beer Run or by calling 434-963-9353.
