Baltimore is for Beer Lovers

Baltimore has been a beer-drinking town since Mary Pickersgill sewed the Stars and Stripes on the floor of a local brewery in 1812. From the first German immigrants setting up elaborate breweries and leafy beer gardens, Baltimore has embraced its proud history of local brewing. Today, the city’s beer scene is thriving with craft beer offered by breweries big and small, tap houses and sports bars.

During the 10th annual Baltimore Beer Week Oct. 12-21, Baltimore-area brewers and beer enthusiasts will come together to celebrate the region's rich beer tradition at hundreds of events that include tastings, meet-and-greets, homebrew demos, and even beer history.
