If you love craft beer, FeBREWary is the month for you! Join your favorite Maryland breweries for this month-long celebration.
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.
The Economic Impact of Maryland Beer
FeBREWary showcases the more than 120 breweries operating in the state. Supporting more than 7,100 full-time jobs and $956 million in economic impact, Maryland’s beer industry is a major contributor to the economy.
2022 Legislative Agenda
During this year’s session of Maryland’s General Assembly, the Brewers Association of Maryland is introducing new legislation in partnership with the state’s wineries and distilleries. Firstly, the state’s alcohol beverage manufacturers are working toward an extension of COVID-related retail relief through June 2023. Signed into law during the 2021 session, the current retail relief is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2021. This relief includes direct-to-consumer (DTC) shipping and delivery of locally produced alcohol to Maryland residents, and the waiving of volume limits for off-premise purchases made at local producers. Additionally, Maryland’s alcohol beverage producers are hoping the state will legislate a new fund with the intent to promote and market locally produced beer, cider, mead, spirits, and wine.
Love Thy Beer 2022
The Brewers Association of Maryland will return to the Silver Spring Civic Building for the 2022 Love Thy Beer tasting event on April 8, 2022. Join more than two-dozen local breweries for this fantastic annual event.
This year’s celebration of Love Thy Beer will now highlight a collection of beers intended to complement early spring. Attendees should expect a variety of ales, lagers, and seasonal stouts.
All attendees of Love Thy Beer are invited to sample from dozens of Maryland-made beers, enjoy lite fare from our friends at McGinty’s Public House, dance to live music from the Noah Pierre Band, and celebrate local craft beer! Share your favorite Maryland-brewed winter styles with us by using the hashtags #MDBeer and #LoveThyBeer.
