5 Ways to Say Cheers to Maryland Beer

According to former Governor Martin O'Malley, “beer brewed in Maryland is made from the Eastern Shore to the Western Ridge, from the Cliffs of Calvert to the top of the Chesapeake Bay,” but Frederick County may be the best place to enjoy this local product. From Maryland's largest brewery to local brewpubs, the variety of brews and settings offered in our area are made for beer enthusiasts.
