Since we couldn’t host the Baltimore Craft Beer Festival this fall, we felt it was necessary to find a fun way to help you explore and enjoy great tasting local beer. More than 25 Maryland breweries answered the call to bring the fun of #MDBeer directly to your door!
These breweries partnered up to brew four unique and exclusive releases, representing the hottest trends in beer. Whether your palate prefers hazy pale ales, stouts, clean and crispy lagers, or chewy fruited sours, these breweries have a delicious release for you! Each collaboration is paired with a local label artist and we’re thrilled to introduce you to Series #1 of The Collab Project.
Working with the four breweries who hosted the Collab Project brews (B.C. Brewery, Calvert Brewing Co., Idiom Brewing Co., and True Respite,) we’re happy to announce that we’ll be offering pickup of these great beers. Now you can either select to pick your beer up in-person or have it shipped directly to your door.
Juicy & Hazy Collab: Eight Hazy IPA
Host Brewery: B.C. Brewery
Collaborators: Full Tilt, Hopkins Farm Brewery, Independent Brewing Co., Mobtown Brewing, Mully’s Brewery, Pub Dog Brewing, Smoketown Brewing Station
Description: This Hazy IPA is packed with Galaxy, Mosaic and Talus hops giving it plenty of juicy, tropical flavors and aromas. We use locally sourced barley, oats and wheat to provide a silky, full-bodied mouthfeel that compliments the aggressive hop profile.
Malty Collab: What Maryland Stouts Tropical Extra Stout
Host Brewery: True Respite
Collaborators: 1623 Brewing Co., Crooked Crab Brewing Co., Denizens Brewing Co., Hysteria Brewing, Mano Negra Beer Co., Milkhouse Brewery, Nepenthe Brewing Co., Quiet Scheme, Slate Farm Brewery, Ten Eyck Brewing Co.
Description: What is a Tropical Extra Stout, you might ask? Well, if you ask our friends at True Respite and the other collaborators producing “What Maryland Stouts,” you’d hear a lot about the rich cocoa, coffee, and dark fruit flavors that are derived from the specialty malts making up the recipe’s grist bill. It sounds delicious to us: roasty notes married to a lightly sweet character in a luscious beer!
Lager Collab: BAM! Italian Pilsner
Host Brewery: Calvert Brewing Co.
Collaborators: Denizens Brewing Co., Elk River Brewing Co., Forward Brewing, Hysteria Brewing
Description: A beautiful dry-hopped and unfiltered variation on the traditional Pilsen style, our Italian Pilsner pours a beautiful straw color and hits your nose with the classic spicy, floral, and herbal notes you would expect from noble hops along with a slight lemon peel twist from our use of Kazbek hops. It drinks crisp hoppy and carbonated with a nice biscuit finish.
Fruited Sour Collab: POW! SMACK! BAM! Fruited Sour
Host Brewery: Idiom Brewing Co.
Collaborators: 7 Locks Brewing, Charm City Meadworks, Homaide Brewing Co., Smoketown Brewing Creekside, Steinhardt Brewing Co., Streetcar 82 Brewing Co.
Description: This is an extremely flavorful, puree-packed, fruited sour. Full of blueberry, raspberry, black currant, cinnamon, and vanilla, this is going to be an exceptional addition to that beer shelf in your fridge.
