Ellicott Mills Brewery

Here at the Mills we have a very simple, yet demanding approach to producing Alpenhof beer. We use the very best ingredients available. We are efficient and precise in production method, yet we allow the product to age to its full maturity. Balance is the key to our beer. Alpenhof beer is not created to challenge the senses. It is not created to be a complex beer. Well balanced for Alpenhof means smooth and easy-drinking. The way a beer should taste.

The Wine Bin

These past few days have been an emotional roller coaster. I'm sure many of you have been watching the videos and seeing the devastation. For me, it's just to painful to look at. I was able to go to the store on Tuesday and Wednesday. What I saw took my breath away and truly saddened my soul. The Bin survived the storm a little worse for ware but she's a good old strong building. We have damages but nothing that can't be repaired. Around The Bin it looks like a bad horror movie. The beautiful gardens where people sat to watch the summer movies are gone.

So many of you have called, texted, emailed, messaged me and posted words of encouragement. I Thank You from the bottom of my heart. You have made the pain less painful.

Against my nature, we have started a Go Fund Me. Please do not feel you need to give. 

We will be selling the super cool Wine Bin T-Shirt on line starting in a day or so.

Thank you,

Dave & The Wine Bin Family

Howard County Summer Theatre

Howard County Summer Theatre proudly announces performances of its 43rd annual summer musical, “Annie”. “Annie” is a 1977 musical based on the comic strip “Little Orphan Annie” by Harold Gray.

“Annie,” opened in 1977 at the Alvin Theatre on Broadway with Andrea McArdle in the title role, and ran for 6 years. “Annie” received eleven Tony nominations and won seven awards. In addition to numerous Broadway revivals and touring companies and several movie adaptations, Annie is a popular production with high schools and community theatres. HCST is proud to share this crowd-pleasing family friendly stage production with our community.

“White Christmas” is the story of eleven year-old Annie who lives at the Municipal Girls Orphanage in New Yours City run by the oppressive Ms. Hannigan. Annie escapes the orphanage for a short time and gets a taste of life in the big city. After being returned to Ms. Hannigan, Annie’s big break comes when she is chosen to spend a few days with billionaire Oliver Warbucks. Through songs such as “Hard Knock Life”,  “NYC”, “Easy Street”, “Maybe” and the iconic “Tomorrow” we follow Annie on her journey to try to leave the orphanage and find her parents.

HCST is pleased to have Camden Lippert and Brooke Webster sharing the title role of Annie. HCST veteran Marloe Lippert plays Grace Ferrell with Robyn Bloom in the role of Ms. Hannigan. HCST newcomer Ben Bransford plays Oliver Warbucks. The show is directed by Tom Sankey and choreographed by Amanda Tschirgi, with Chris Hettenbach doing the vocal musical direction.

The show will be presented at River Hill High School located at 12101 Route 108, Clarksville, MD 21029. Show dates are June 28-30 and July 5-7 at 7:00 p.m. and July 1 and 7 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $20, with a discounted price of $17 for seniors (60+) and children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased online at, at Music and Arts in Chatham Station in Ellicott City, or from a cast member. Tickets will also be sold at the door. Our tradition includes sharing a portion of our proceeds with local charities. In addition to Prepare for Success and BearTrax, proceeds from this year’s show will also benefit the relief efforts for the victims of the 2018 Ellicott City flood.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Gerrad Alex Taylor

June 22 – July 29, 2018

The course of true love never did run smooth.

On the eve of a royal wedding, a quartet of lovers and a motley group of amateur actors visit a fairy-filled forest. When the worlds of mortals and fairies cross paths, mischief and mayhem follow – along with maybe the funniest scene Shakespeare ever wrote. Bring a picnic and a bottle of wine and share an enchanting night of romantic comedy under the stars in the PFI Historic Park, Ellicott City, our festival-style summer theatre home. 

Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 6pm. Sundays are Family Fun Days, with kid-friendly activities including face-painting and costume dress-up before the show.

The ticket tent and gates open 90 minutes before the performance for picnics, festival-style-fun for all ages, and preshow events.
