Soak up some Vitamin D every Sun-day. Starting August 8th, experienced paddlers can kayak the inner harbor every Sunday. From 9:00 a.m. until noon, or 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., kayakers will witness the Torsk submarine, the U.S.S. Constellation, and Mr. Trash Wheel on a guided tour. Tickets are $20/person.

Hands on HIIT

Afterward, patrons will help beautify Baltimore and clean up. It’s important to care for our local community, environment, and ecosystems. So, come raise awareness for litter pollution. Oh, and did we mention that there’s a happy hour afterward? 

No ticket purchase is necessary. Instead, it is strongly encouraged that all participants donate $10-$20. These donations will go towards environmental activism and the movement's efforts. Bee the change.

Everything’s Gonna Brie Alright...
Because Stacey Vaughan is hosting the best Charcuterie Class. For $85/ticket, patrons will learn how to carefully arrange and prepare charcuterie boards, all whilst sampling Mobtown’s brews and drafts. Vaughan, too, will educate patrons on the perfect food and drink pairings. At the end of the class, everyone will take home their made charcuterie boards with 3-4 different cheeses and 2-3 meats. 

So, come take it cheesy on Saturday, August 14th, from 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m., at Mobtown Brewing Co.

Take this August with a Grain of Salt
But, also, with a slice of lime and some tequila. That’s right, stop by and enjoy these Happy Hours.
