There’s plenty going on in the breweries all around the Eastern Shore, but this week it mostly is about outreach. Brewers here are taking advantage of the quiet season to spread the word about Shore Craft Beer. Whether you are looking for gifts for you, or from you, craft beer is a treat and a half.
Beer gear is a safe bet if you’re looking for gifts. Later on this week we’ll be posting some of our favorites from each of the breweries, but you can choose for yourself if you want. Evolution Craft Brewing is making a big push this week:

Western Shore Love
For our friends on the western Shore who miss the beach, there’s not a lot we can do to help you. If you’re missing the beer, however, we kind of have you covered. Ocean City Brewing is hosting an Evo tap takeover in its Bel Air brewpub so you can get a taste of several Shore beers without crossing the bridge.
More than merch there’s Merch(andizing) and our friends at FinCity are moving out with distinctive displays. If you are fortunate enough to see one out in the wild, let us know by tagging us on Facebook or Twitter
Congratulations are in order for Assawoman Bay. It wasn’t a secret that they made great beer, but they were impressive to the guys at Mid-Atlantic Brewing Company, which totally is saying something.

Thank God we have people on the beach to remind us that summer never really goes away. But this weekend summer really, really didn’t go away. It showed up with its flipflops and Santa hat and hit the beach…
Beat Army? OK, for beer
Beat Army, the newest release from Chesapeake Brewing Company must have worked. We imagine that many of the people in this photo had the opportunity to try the new Golden Lager.
