Food, brews and killer views

Share the News


In only really two major food and beverage categories am I a snob of sorts: beer and pizza. (Hello, Hersh’s Pizza…)

On the beer front, I just feel like there are so many local craft brew choices around here, why on earth would you drink the same thing every time you head for the fridge? I always have a mixed bag of beers on hand. Right now, I’ve got about 10 different beers crammed in my little fridge. They include a few from Frederick’s Flying Dog brewery – Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale, Bloodline Blood Orange IPA and Easy IPA. All delicious! Thank you to my friends at The Wine Source  for always recommending great stuff (and selling all of the amazing cheese!)

Wit & Wisdom at the Four Seasons in Harbor East is hosting an event on July 31 to celebrate Flying Dog’s “The Dead Rise OLD BAY® Cookbook.” This harborside event offers an exclusive opportunity to enjoy Flying Dog’s brews coupled with eats from Wit & Wisdom’s Executive Chef Zack Mills and Executive Pastry Chef Dyan Ng.  To complement each station of both sweet and savory options, Flying Dog will offer handpicked samples of craft beer from its impressive lineup showcasing Maryland’s favorite flavor profiles like the new seasonal favorite, Dead Rise OLD BAY summer ale.

Wit & Wisdom’s waterside patio, Wit on the Water is a great spot to sit outside to relax, take in the insane views across the water and enjoy really delicious food and drinks (I love Aaron Joseph’s cocktail creations and Chef Michael Mina’s amazing ahi tuna tartare!).  At the Flying Dog event, guests will enjoy live music on the patio from the bluesy-rock Ruben Montoya Band.

Tickets are $55 and include unlimited (yep, unlimited…) food and samples of Flying Dog Brewery beer. The event runs from 6:00-8:30pm. For more event details and to book tickets, visit
