Another part of my weekend was spent touring two breweries and checking out the local Maryland wines.
The current dietary recommendations are 1 glass of wine, 1 beer, 1 mixed drink for women and two of eat for the boys.
Black Ankle Vineyards is located in Mt Airy, Maryland; near historic Frederick (45 miles north of the District of Columbia). I picked up a bottle of their red wine, Cosecha.
A cheap Saturday afternoon can be spent at the Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick. For $5 you can tour their facility and get a free glass to sample their award-winning brews. I took home a six pack of the In Heat Wheat, which is a spunky light beer with a malt-y finish, for the boyfriend so we'll see if I can convert another fan.
