Late last Thursday night, a fire raged through downtown Silver Spring, severely damaging the beloved Quarry House Tavern. 

Now, Downtown Crown is hosting the Cannonball Firkin Run event originally scheduled for Quarry House and we’re each donating $1 from each cask beer purchased to help the owners and staff get back on their feet.
