The Wine Bin in Hoco does growlers and has a solid (albeit a limited and rotated) selection. In Frederick, I know you can go to the Flying Dog brewery (off 85) and get growlers.
Currently on tap at wine bin: http://www.winebinec.com/beerandales.php

I know Staples in Crofton (corner of 450&424), here's a link to their plans:
Growler independence day (July 1st, 5-9 PM) at flying dog
If you're into wild ales/sours track down some of Weyerbacher's Riserva. I've had a lot of luck finding it on shelves, seems people aren't familiar with it.
It is fantastic.
I was in Aruba for my honeymoon last week. The National beer of Aruba (and really the only one you can get easily) is called Balashi... its pretty bad. It tastes like a bad Heineken- and I dont really like Heineken.
However, its amazing what day drinking by the pool for a week can do- I sort of acquired a taste for the stuff.
Ratings for Balashi; Euro Pale Lager style beer brewed by Brouwerij Nacional Balashi in Oranjestad, Aruba. 68 out of 100 with 90 BeerAdvocate opinions.
Any of you guys been to the new Craft Beer and Wine store next to Costco in Wheaton yet? 10% off coupon came in the mail the other day, but its only good through the 30th... not sure if its worth the effort or not...
Going to a New Belgium beer dinner tonight. Should be fun!
Sweet it's sideways, thanks jeff

So I'm drinking on the deck tonight, watching my retard dog run around with another dog I'm watching. Just me, the dogs, and a full fridge.
Home brew Saison - not ready, needs 2 more weeks
Schafly Kolsch - I really like the Kolsch style, this one is pretty good. Wish it was a tad sweeter
Victory Swing Session Saison - so glad more beers are going sessionable, but damn this is boring. Would not buy again
Weyerbacher double simcoe ipa - I think I've posted here before on this, but if I am leaving session territory this is a favorite. Heard there are unfiltered cork & cage bottles floating around, may need to find one. Love the simcoe
Weyerbacher eighteen weizenbock - 11% and doesn't hide it. Heard good things, but only ok to me.
Finish with a remaining Peak Simcoe Spring. I like this one as far a spring beers go.
Dogs are tired and I'm drunk going to bed. #turning30soon

I had a 4 pack of Six Point "Apollo" this past weekend in DE... so, so good.
I really liked Apollo but felt that it smelled like feet so that was something to get past
"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
Had Swamp Ape DIPA down in Miami this past weekend. Thought it was awful, way too malty for my taste with underwhelming hop profile for a DIPA.
Went to 3 very good beer bars in South Florida, highly recommend all of them
http://www.abraxaslounge.com/ Very cool, off the beaten path craft beer/wine bar in South Beach
http://www.tap42.com/ Burger/Gastropub in Ft. Liquordale with 50 (wtf) taps
http://www.yelp.com/biz/laser-wolf-fort-lauderdale Cool Hipsterish bar with different food trucks outside every day
Move to San Diego in your next relocation adventure. I go to their brewery about once a month - about 2 dozen on tap (theirs and several other locals) and a steady variety of food trucks.
Last night tried the brown - "WOODBOOGER BELGIAN-STYLE BROWN ALE" - of a new brewery in town: http://strangewaysbrewing.com/beers/ not to bad.
Up next week is a trip to another new one in Caroline County, with possibly one of the best names + slogans I've seen in a while:
http://www.rustybeaverbrewery.com/ , "You never forget your first beaver"
They are opening a brewery in Virginia Beach. Yes please!
Congrats to the 2011 Suqueboard WPT Champion: Amyeg

Williamsburg Alewerks My Bitter Valentine
Westbrook Mexican Cake
Smuttynose Baltic Porter
Williamsburg Alewerks Cafe Royale
Bull Jagger Big Claw
Firestone Walker Double DBA '12
The Bruery Sans Pagaie
Boulevard Love Child #3
He'Brew Jewbilation 12

Mystic Mary of the Gael
Potters Craft Cider
Ballast Point Imperial Red Ale
Devil Dancer 2010
Devil Dancer 2013

Mexican Cake might have been my favorite, followed up by the Smuttynose Baltic Porter (which I was really surprised by, underrated brewery).
Lagunitas Beer Dinner tomorrow night at Tuskies in Leesburg
Either this website doesn't exist or is not currently available.
Was up in Sonoma a few days ago checking out the wineries, and took a day off to go on a beer tour.
Started up in Healdsburg and headed South to Petaluma.
Bear Republic - nice location in artsy-winery heavy Healdsburg. Great charcuterie to match up with the beers. Highlight was Cafe Racer 15 a tasting room-only DIPA version of the already awesome Racer 5
Russian River - superb. Caught the US Gold Cup match here. Great brick oven pizzas. Sunday wound up being all day happy hour ($3.25 pints) Crushed a bunch of Pliny the Elder's before trying out other awesome IPA's such as Blind Pig and Row 2 Hill 56
Lagunitas - final stop on the tour. Sunday wound up being one of their Bar-B-Que and music days outside at the brewery. tons of good food and beer. Highlights were BBQ oysters and Hop Stoopid on draft.
Anyone know where I can get some Apollo around here? (MD suburbs)
Going on the flying dog tour sat.
Will be trying some Heady Topper this weekend when my buddy gets to town. Heard great things.
