To put Maryland’s craft beer industry in the spotlight, state officials and breweries are coming together for a series of events next month. This latest creation is called FeBREWary.
Baltimore has Union, a host of beers at Peabody Heights and new breweries in Waverly, Key Brewing, Diamondback Brewing and Brewhouse No. 16. Some of those will be featured in the FeBREWary series, like a Feb. 4 documentary screening at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
But many events also provide a reason to get outside the city and see what’s brewing. Shore Brewing in St. Michaels is a key force behind the monthlong series. On the Eastern Shore, they’re joined by Backshore and Fin City in Ocean City, as well as Evolution Craft Brewing in Salisbury. On the Eastern Shore, breweries are seen as one attraction that can extend the tourism season. During February, more than two dozen restaurants on the Eastern Shore will also feature craft beer pairings with food.
“Every dollar that’s out there working for us in our industry, whether it’s our breweries, tourism, restaurants, hospitality, it’s hard earned,” State Sen. Jim Mathias said at a ceremony to announce the FeBREWary series.
On the other side of the state, there’s also a new offering coming from one of the state’s beloved breweries.
“We plan to launch a very special beer that celebrates our 25th year as an independent craft brewery, and after two and a half decades we couldn’t be more excited about our future,” said Flying Dog Chief Marketing Officer Ben Savage.
