FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Come See About Harford County Breweries’ Pale Ales
Collaborative beer recipe to be unveiled at Double Groove Brewing Company
(ANNAPOLIS, MD) – Life’s so uncertain without delicious, locally brewed beer. This February, eight Harford County breweries are collaborating to unite their communities. Over the last several weeks, these brewers worked together to develop a recipe for “Come See About My Pale Ale.” Forest Hill’s Double Groove Brewing Company will be the first brewery to unveil its version of the beer at a public tapping on Thursday, February 9.
“The timing for this project couldn’t have been more perfect,” said Mark Moody, co-founder of Double Groove Brewing Company. “We’re happy to release this beer during FeBREWary and 2023 is such a milestone in our County’s history. We felt this collaborative beer project was a great way to give back to the local community, honor the County’s heritage, and have some fun in the process.”
February marks the annual celebration of Maryland Craft Beer Lovers Month – known locally as “FeBREWary.” Breweries, retailers and consumers throughout the state celebrate the month with new beer releases, on-premise events and other craft beer engagements. The Come See About My Pale Ale recipe results from a collaborative project dedicated to Harford County’s 250th Anniversary and recognizes Maryland Craft Beer Lovers Month. The beer’s name is a playful nod to “Come See About Me,” a track released as a single in 1964 by Havre De Grace native Nella Dodds and made famous by the Supremes.
AleCraft Brewery, Battery Island Brewing Company, Falling Branch Brewery, Hopkins Farm Brewery, Independent Brewing Co., Market Street Brewery, Slate Farm Brewery and Visit Harford were all involved in this collaborative effort.
“This collaboration is monumental,” said Matthew Scales, Executive Director of Visit Harford. “Each participating brewery recognizes this significant anniversary and invites you to try their interpretation of this pale ale. What a great way to enjoy FeBREWary in Harford County!”
This year’s celebration of FeBREWary kicks off on February 1 at Patuxent Brewing Company in Waldorf. Consumers are also invited to join more than two-dozen local breweries at Love Thy Beer for a sampling event in Silver Spring on February 10.
