Brewing in Maryland

The history of brewing in Maryland stretches from the state’s earliest days to the sweeping changes of Prohibition and into the present. Maureen O’Prey dives into this prolific industry that aided in the formation of towns and cities, helped build the economy and created a legacy that still exists. A special emphasis will be placed on Carroll County brewers.
