Our 2013 effort to source local hops for our annual harvest ale, Secret Stash, set the groundwork for this year’s 2014 Northeast Hop Selection – connecting local hop growers with local breweries.

Area hop growers, represented by the Maryland Chapter of the Northeast Hop Growers Alliance, brought samples of this year’s lot (including Crystal, Cascade, Chinook and Brewers Gold) for 15 Maryland breweries to evaluate and bid on.

Allow our brewmaster Matt Brophy to explain: “We have an obligation to the growers and to our fellow brewers. A lot of them are a lot smaller than us, so it’s a great chance for us to host this event and have brewers come out and look through the hops — touch them, smell them — and buy some of them to use, whether that’s in a firkin, a 10-barrel batch, a 50-barrel batch, or in our case, a 200-barrel batch.”

700 pounds of Maryland hops were contracted and will inevitably find their way back into Maryland pint glasses. This is what #SupportLocal is all about.

Local Riot 2014

Join the movement to support local creativity. Our annual Local RIOT will be on Saturday, October 4 at the brewery. It’s free and open to those 21 and up. It’s also dog friendly (and that pesky age limit doesn’t apply to our four-legged friends).

So far, we have the following game changers and rule breakers lined up:

All food and beer is sold a la carte. And stay tuned for more vendors to be announced.

To decide on the lineup for our 2015 Brewhouse Rarities, our brewmaster Matt Brophy and his team had to narrow down 45 beer concepts to just eight. 

And there was just a little pressure from the rest of us. Why? Because they were all of our ideas. 

Each summer, our entire brewery congregates atop a historic overlook in the Catoctin Mountain Range and teams of our staff — from production to accounting to sales and marketing — pitch ideas for the next year’s Brewhouse Rarities. 

And once the beers are picked, each team is responsible for everything involved in that beers release, from sourcing ingredients to planning launch events outside of the brewery. 

Next year’s teams have some work to do for:

  • Mexican Hot Chocolate Stout 
  • Earl Grey Black Wheat
  • Sriracha Pale Ale
  • Maibock
  • Juniper White IPA
  • India Pale Lager
  • Spiced Pear Ale
  • Smoked Belgian Stout 

And new next year is that each beer will be available on draft AND in 6-packs. Look for the first to be on tap and on shelves in the mid-Atlantic by January 1.

1. Will tickets be available at the door? 

Nope. The show is SOLD OUT. 

2. Is the show outside? Will it be held rain or shine?

Yes and yes. Only the stage is covered, but even if there are a few sprinkles, we think you’ll be just fine. There will also be no access to the brewery itself and no re-entry once you’ve been admitted. 

3. Is this an all-ages show?

NO. Only those 21 and older with a valid ID will be admitted. That’s the law. And that include babies and small children, even if they’re strapped to your chest and/or attached with a leash. 

4. Are all tickets general admission? 

Yes. All spots are first come, first serve.  

5. Where do I park?

Parking is on our brewery grounds. Attendants will be on-site all day to direct and showcase of an array of neon-colored vests. 

6. Can I bring chairs, blankets, and/or umbrellas?

Due to space constraints and the sake of those around you (umbrella ends in the eye are no fun), we have to say NOPE to all of the above. 

7. Is outside food or drink allowed? 

Again, NOPE AND NOPE. The only exception to this is unopened bottles of water. (But if you don’t BYOW, we’ll have free water stations throughout the area.) Aside from our delicious beers, no other alcoholic beverages can be consumed or served on our brewery grounds by law. Food and soda will be available for purchase from the kick ass food trucks we have lined up. 

8. So, what’s the deal with beer?

All beer is a la carte and available for purchase for $5 each. From the just-released Dogtoberfest Marzen to a cask of Raging Bitch with mango and habanero, our beer list is a doozy. There is a limit of two beers per person, just like stadiums, per transaction. 

9. Are pets allowed?

NO. Trust us, they will have a much better time sneaking onto your bed and taking a long nap than they will dodging beer bellies and beards.

10. Is photography and video allowed? 

Yes, as long as it is not professional. Amateur photos and footage for fun, shits (for, not of), and giggles are welcomed and encouraged. While you’re at it, share it with your friends and ours on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. 

11. I plan on drinking responsibly, but what if I need a cab? Hotel room?

We’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of who to call and where to stay. Here’s a list of who to call and where to stay.

12. Are any other things prohibited? 

Funny you should ask:

  • Smoking
  • Weapons 
  • Illegal substances
  • Party poopers

On behalf of the 5,500 watermen working the Chesapeake Bay, Governor Martin O’Malley accepted a donation from yours truly and OLD BAY® to the True Blue program yesterday in our taproom.

A check for $10,270, a portion of proceeds from sales of Dead Rise OLD BAY Summer Ale, was presented to True Blue, which advocates on behalf of the Chesapeake Bay’s watermen and promotes sustainably harvested Maryland Blue Crab.

Now in its third year, the True Blue program created a $7 million increase in business for local crabbers since its inception.

Steve Vilnit, head of the True Blue program said: “We plan to increase public awareness campaigns for both consumers and the food service industry with this donation. Through True Blue, everyone can know where their crabs are coming from. And increasing this traceability not only helps the watermen, but also allows consumers who want to buy local know that their money is going back to their local fisheries.”

In order for a restaurant to be True Blue-certified, it must prove that at least 75 percent of the crabmeat it uses is sustainably harvested from and processed in the Chesapeake Bay region. True Blue also empowers the public to buy local through an interactive map of True Blue-certified establishments at marylandseafood.org.

Vilnit added: “Supporting local fishermen not only improves the local economy, but also helps to cut the carbon footprint of the seafood we eat. The average consumer can vote with their fork.”

Dead Rise will be available on draft and in 6-packs through mid-September in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia.

Ravens Dog

What Baltimorean doesn’t love hanging out under a bridge?

Introducing the new Flying Dog Underpass on RavensWalk, where we’ll be serving beer and hosting live music before every Baltimore Ravens home game. 

Because who doesn’t need a Sunday Snake Dog or two before noon? 

The Ravens’ first preseason game is tomorrow against the San Francisco 49ers. Kickoff is at 7:30 pm, so RavensWalk, which opens 3 hours before each game and closes at kickoff, will open at 4:30 pm. It is located on the walkway between Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium, between parking lots B and C.

What about inside the stadium, in the land of clear plastic bags? 

We’ll continue to be the only local, Maryland-brewed craft beer available throughout the 2014 season with Snake Dog IPA, Pale Ale, and seasonals like Dead Rise OLD BAY Summer Ale and Dogtoberfest Marzen. Plus, you can get tallboys in your seats with stadium hawkers stocking 16-oz cans of Snake Dog.

Because no beer-and-sports partnership is complete without a t-shirt, we’ve brought back the Beer So Hard Tee, which is on sale now online and in our gift shop.

2. Is the show outside? Will it be held rain or shine?

Yes and yes. Only the stage is covered, but with the 0% chance of precipitation we’re praying for, we think you’ll be just fine. (Let’s all now collectively knock on wood, just to be safe.) There will also be no access to the brewery itself and no re-entry once you’ve been admitted.
