Eastern Shore: Sure Bet With the Shorebirds: The Oriole’s Single-A, South Atlantic League squad, the Delmarva Shorebirds are a grand-slam stop on the way to the beach or a great destination on their own. Eastern shore eats are out of this world, especially the can’t-miss walkin’ bird from the “Chicken Fry Fry Stand,” But what would you expect from a stadium named for Frank Purdue? In addition to amazing sightlines, architecture that invokes Eastern Shore tradition, and the family favorite carousel in the outfield, Shorebirds games are a great place to sample Eastern Shore craft brews.

EVO Delmarva Pure Pils, Evolution Craft Brewing Company: You can’t go wrong with Evo’s English inspired ales, but with the Delmarva Pure Pils, Evo took on the tough task of brewing a true, Czech-style pilsner and hit it out of the park! The Evo selection at Purdue Stadium is always changing, but take a  brewery tour just around the corner or treat yourself to a night at the Evo Public House, offering great food (Duck Confit for the win!) and the full selection of Evo beers.

Puckface, RaR: The folks At RaR were part of the first wave of downtown Cambridge’s recent revival, and baseball may be the only thing they love as much as beer. When trying to come up with a name for their new sour beer, they took a hold of a hanging slider and sent it into the seats. Named for Billy Ripken’s notorious 1989 baseball card (look it up, this is a family website!), Puck Face is a refreshing sour with a wheaty up-front tartness that lingers till finish. And the folks at RaR are always a blast, making Cambridge a perfect spot on your way back up the shore.

Rye Not Pale Ale, Eastern Shore Brewing: Speaking of the ‘89 Orioles, why not try a Rye Not? Brewed with New Zealand hops and local rye, it’s a fitting tribute to the ‘89, worst-to-first Orioles and Maryland’s rejuvenated rye whiskey tradition. A smooth, drinkable beer, and Eastern Shore Brewing’s taphouse in St. Michael’s is another fantastic stop on your baseball and brew road trip.

Extra Innings— Make Time for the Eastern Shore Baseball Hall of Fame: Located in the Shorebirds’ stadium, the Eastern Shore Baseball Hall of Fame is a great tribute to the region’s rich baseball history. Inductees include Hall of Famer Jimmie Fox and the greatest DH of all time, Harold Baines.
