5/16/2018
More
In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Schooner Woodwind (based in Annapolis), Captain Jen collaborated with Hysteria to brew a commemorative beer -- the Seas the Bay IPA. FYI, it's delicious.

Colin & Francis, Diamondback Brewing

4/16/2018
More
It's rare that a brewery gets a second chance to give a first impression -- or to reimagine a drastically different on-premises strategy than they might have imagined years ago when they first got started. But that's exactly what Diamondback Brewing was able to do. Learn more about the Naptown Pintcast.

Earl, Daniel & Andrew, Crooked Crab Brewing (Part II)

4/7/2018
More
Sunday, March 25, 2018 was Maryland Day, when the first European settlers landed in the province of Maryland on that date in 1634. To celebrate, I headed back to Odenton to see the guys at Crooked Crab Brewing. If you're a long-time listener, first-time caller of the Naptown Pintcast, you'll probably recall that I hung out with the Crooked Crab crew. Leaving aside the fact that I clearly didn't know much about podcasting when we first recorded -- "Dude, the wind won't ruin the audio," I...

Kurt, Brian & Chris, Manor Hill Brewing

3/28/2018
More
On an unseasonably warm Tuesday this past winter, I spent the afternoon with Old Man Kurt Krol, Brian Delaney and young whippersnapper Chris Broome at Howard County's first farm brewery, Manor Hill Brewing. We ate hot dogs. Lots of 'em. Then we drank beer. And then, through a very long conversation, in the back of their brewhouse, the guys confirmed a long-standing suspicion of mine. There's more than meets the eye when it comes to the team behind the beer at Manor Hill -- especially in...

Julie & Emily, Denizens Brewing Co.

More
Surprise! A bonus episode for you today! If you're into Maryland beer, and you haven't heard of Julie Verratti and Emily Bruno of Denizens Brewing, can you tell me about the rock you've been living under? Does it have a walk-in closet? How's the square footage? Are utilities included? Okay, that was a bit rude, and I'm sorry. For those unfamiliar, Julie and Emily are married. And along with Emily's brother (and now brewmaster) Jeff Ramirez, founded Denizens Brewing in Silver Spring...

Carly & Brian, Attaboy Beer

12/28/2017
More
It's no secret that Frederick has one of the best beer scenes in the state -- maybe that's why husband and wife Brian and Carley Ogden's California dream of opening a brewery became a Maryland reality with Attaboy Beer, located on Sagner Avenue. Granted, the story of how this local, hop-forward Frederick favorite came to be wasn't without its hurdles. A bad blind date (that thankfully turned into a good one), a batch of early homebrew dumped into sanitizer, a lost real estate opportunity...

Al & Roy, Waverly Brewing Company

Meet Al and Roy of Waverly Brewing in Baltimore, right off of I-83 in Hampden. “We want teachers to be able to come here and hang out. And on any given Saturday or Sunday, you’ll see folks — they come down with their strollers, and they’re hanging out with their kids, and there are dogs running around. That’s cool to us. These are our friends. We know these folks.”

Franchise law. Local agriculture. The "circle of beer life." What makes the Maryland beer community great. Roosters. You name it, my interview with Judy, Rob and Stephen of Checkerspot Brewing (coming soon to Baltimore) covers it all...

Kevin Blodger, Union Craft Brewing

Have you heard of Union Craft Brewing in Baltimore? Then you probably fall into one of two categories: or (There's probably a third category of not liking their beer, and thus not caring about who Kevin Blodger is... but if that sounds like you, we may not be able to be friends, so let's just move on.) Kevin Blodger, Union Craft Brewing head brewer, all-around badass One sunny Friday morning not too long ago, I made my way to Baltimore to sit down with Kevin in Union's taproom. During...

Crooked Crab Brewing

More
Welcome to Flashback Friday! This week’s episode is actually a throwback to the very first episode I ever recorded of the Naptown Pintcast with Crooked Crab Brewery, which I’m obviously serving up to you a little out of order. In this episode, I talk to Alex and Andrew of Crooked Crab about their experience as a brewery attempting to be the first to open in Anne Arundel County, breweries as community spaces, Andrew's "man crush" on Comptroller Peter Franchot, and their message to local...

“We don’t consider time. We don’t consider expense. It’s all about what’s going to make the best beer. We do everything for the love of the beer.” “How does [what happened with House Bill 1283] build faith for people who want to open businesses in Maryland?” “The American adjunct lager is the bastard child of Prohibition.” A funny, unapologetic interview with Tim and Rahul of Goonda Beersmiths in Baltimore.
