What is FeBREWary?

By official proclamation of Governor Larry Hogan, FeBREWary is Maryland’s official month-long celebration of craft beer lovers, and with craft brew events on tap across the state, it’s the perfect time for a beer lover's getaway. Breweries, ale houses and brew pubs are open across the state, so head to your favorite Maryland vacation destination and expand your brew I.Q. with a new style of beer from a local craft brewer, or cozy up with a tall mug of an old favorite in a bit of Maryland you've yet to explore. From the mountains to the beach, FeBREWary in Maryland is the perfect opportunity to hoist a pint with good friends in great places.

Hotel and Brewery Packages

With so many craft beer lovers’ events across Maryland, it’s a great excuse to hit the road. To maximize your fun, and stay safe, make the most of your sudsy adventure with a hotel and brewery package. Transportation to and from FeBREWary events from participating hotels, the only thing you’ll have to worry about is if you prefer the lambic, the porter or the IPA. And hotels are providing great FeBREWary amenities like cold six-packs of Maryland micros waiting in your room. For a complete list, visit the Brewers Association of Maryland and Shore Craft Beer websites.
