Shore Craft Beer Cruises are back! Thursdays this summer are all about local beers on the bay. Shore Craft Beer is again offering weekly sunset cruises aboard the OC Bay Hopper. Each week will be hosted by some of our favorite local breweries.
Crooked Hammock Takes Over Shore Craft Beer Cruise
This past Thursday, founder of Crooked Hammock Brewery, Rich Garrahan, and head of new Lewes location, Tom Little, hopped aboard the OC Bay Hopper to share some of their easily crushable brews.
Garrahan and Little both emphasized their brewery’s mission to provide easy drinking beers, all year long. The goal is beverages for relaxing, carefree days, which is evident itself in the brewery’s name. Focusing on brews with lower alcohol levels, Crooked Hammock allows consumers to comfortably enjoy their breezy beers.
Local Brewery Provides “Summer In A Can,” All Year Long
This easygoing philosophy is evident in the naming of the brewery’s offerings. The essence of summer can be savored year round in brews such as Beach Escape IPA, and South to Somewhere, a surprise hit on the cruise. Tom Little noted that even customers who claim to not like coconut, enjoy it in this refreshing golden ale.
Four Tires, the brewery’s featured lager, evokes the feeling of spontaneous road trips with friends, “the modern American adventure,” as described by Garrahan. Brand New Day, a personal fave, boasts the bright flavors of a grown-up fruit punch, but has a smooth balance between sour and sweet.
Shore Craft Beer Cruises provide two beer samples per customer, but Crooked Hammock brought four options for guests to choose from, or purchase additionally. The options are so tasty that many passengers on the OC Bay Hopper could not resist!
Shore Craft Beer Cruises Offer Brews With a View
The sunset cruises launch from Sneaky Pete’s, bay front deck bar of Hooper’s Crab House , every Thursday evening at 7 pm. The leisurely voyage wanders around the shores of the Assawoman Bay, providing unique views of Assateague Island and Ocean City.
Enjoy tasty beverages while you catch sight of Osprey nests, commercial fishing boats in action, locals and tourists alike enjoying our waterfront community. While the Shore Craft Beer Cruise is a perfect two-hour sunset jaunt, OC Bay Hopper does offer trips around to many famous Ocean City seaside establishments
Grab a couple friends and get on board! The next Shore Craft Beer cruise sets sail this Thursday, June 25th. Seat numbers are limited as the OC Bay Hopper continues to observe safe distancing guidelines, so book your seat today!
