News from the BOG: We are cancelling large club events until further notice. Once COVID-19 restrictions are eased, the BOG will re-assess. If we are able to schedule some smaller social events such as local bike rides and Thursday Meet and Greets, we will send email blasts and publish them in the Sitzmark.
Thursday, 15 October, 5 PM
Meet and Greet at Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Mark your calendars for drinks and pub grub on Thursday October 15 starting at 5PM. The Guinness Open Gate Brewery is located at 5001 Washington Boulevard in Halethorpe, MD. See their webpage for information and directions –
For those who have not been to this brewery, they have a large outdoor beer garden that includes 1.5-acres with 60 tables. The outdoor areas have lighting but at this time, are not heated. Food is available off their Taproom menu, which includes daily oyster appetizers, crab cake entrees, chicken wings, and flatbreads and of course Guinness beef stew. Check out their menu at
There is plenty of parking available in front of the brewery. Reservations are not required or accepted. Let’s plan to meet outside the mail gate-they will seat us socially distanced with a maximum of 6 people per table, and seat a large group at adjacent tables.
Masks are required on the premises, except when seated at a table. Come join SSS members and Hoist a Pint!
