Love Thy Beer isn’t your average craft beer event. The beers featured at this event are typically limited releases and focus on recipes that are best enjoyed seasonally. Attendance at this event is incredibly limited and attendees are given the opportunity to chat with the experts behind Maryland beer in an intimate setting – all while tasting incredible seasonal ales and lagers and meeting some of our industry’s greatest influencers.
For this year’s event, we’ll be featuring an excellent local band – Justin Trawick and the Common Good. Trawick and the band have performed for the Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival, Appaloosa Roots Music Festival, Floyd Yoga Jam, TedxEast in NYC at the City Winery, and TedxPennsylvaniaAvenue in DC at the Newseum. Additionally, Trawick has opened for over 30 national acts, including Suzanne Vega, Wyclef Jean, Brett Dennen, Blues Traveler, Enter The Haggis, Bob Schneider, and Edwin McCain, and shared bills with Dr. Dogg and The Avett Brothers. As the founder of the nationally touring show “The 9 Songwriter Series” and co-founder of “The Circus Life Podcast” with guests such as Kevin Eubanks, Chris Thomas King, Ernie Halter, Yarn, and Snuffy Walden, Trawick has built a brand that extends far beyond his home base in DC.
