Bowie/Annapolis: See the Future Stars of the Double-A Baysox
Bowie, home of the Orioles Eastern League Baysox, has become a stepping stone to Big League stardom with Platinum Glover Manny Machado, Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta, and All-World catcher Matt Wieters all recent Baysox alums. And one of the all-time great beer and baseball lovers experiences is a skybox rental at Prince George’s Stadium. Or combine three geek passions and go for the Baysox annual Star Wars night. Baseball, craft beers, and Darth Vader?!?!?! Yes please!
Umeboshi Gose, DuClaw Brewing Company: Perhaps the only place on Earth as baseball-crazy as the U.S. of A. is Japan, and Umeboshi Gose is a great take on Japanese flavors in a hot style. Top-fermenting with plums give this gose a unique tartness. Visit the brewery and let us know what you think.
Beat Army Golden Lager, Chesapeake Brewing Company: This light and crisp lager is as American as it gets in style, just like the annual Army-Navy game. And being Annapolis, it’s clear what side this beer comes down on. Visit the Annapolis brew pub for great pub food with great sports fans.
Extra Innings— Go See a Midshipman Game at the Naval Academy: The pros aren’t the only people playing top-notch baseball. See a game at the Naval Academy and cheer on the Mids. Games at the academy offer an energy unlike anything else. Especially if you can catch the annual West Point grudge match.
