What is FeBREWary?
FeBREWary is the official month-long celebration of Maryland craft beer. Maryland is a bubbling craft beer destination in the Mid-Atlantic. The state is home to farm breweries, brewpubs, and manufacturing breweries. Whether you are a Maryland resident or a tourist planning a craft beer getaway, FeBREWary is the perfect time to visit and explore Maryland’s breweries.
Kicking Off FeBREWary
FeBREWary commences on Wednesday, February 1 at Charles County’s Patuxent Brewing Company. Enthusiasts are invited to join local brewery representatives from 2-4 pm for a kickoff happy hour featuring releases from Maryland’s Black-owned breweries and beer brands. In an industry underrepresented by minority business owners, the number of Black-owned breweries in Maryland eclipses national figures. To date, five percent of Maryland’s breweries or craft beer brands are identified as being Black-owned.
The Economic Impact of Maryland Beer
FeBREWary showcases the more than 140 breweries operating in the state. Supporting more than 6,500 full-time jobs and $917 million in economic impact, Maryland’s beer industry is a major contributor to the economy as it raises state taxes and directly impacts the state’s tourism industry.
