EASTON — Doug Greene likes beer.
An Easton native and resident, he’s brewed beer at home for 10 years as a hobby. But recently, it turned into more than just a hobby.
On Thursday, Aug. 6, Greene released his first beer publicly under his Bird Nickel Brewing Company label: Slick Calm Chesapeake Ale.
Greene brews many different beers at home, and had many to pick from to release. He chose Slick Calm, a cream ale, because he didn’t want his first release to blend in with the wide variety of India Pale Ales typically available at liquor stores, and because he felt Slick Calm is a beer everyone can enjoy.
“It’s an everyday beer,” Greene said. “It’s a beer you can have on the boat, on the beach, golfing, whatever. I wanted that for this area. I wanted a craft beer that people can relate to around here. I think even people that drink Budweiser can probably appreciate it.”
