Frederick: Get the Keys to the Game

Don’t miss a chance to catch a game in this hot-bed of the craft brewing movement while seeing future Orioles rising stars of the Carolina League. The craft brew pioneers at Flying Dog, and farm breweries Milkhouse and Red Shedman Farm are just around the corner, and Brewer’s Alley Brewpub has a stand in the stadium. Keys games offer great sightlines, amazing beer, and it’s an easy trip from Baltimore or DC.

Oktoberfest, Brewer’s Alley: Brewer’s Alley offers a host of year-round beers, and the 1634 Ale is a great ballpark beer, but there’s one seasonal that every baseball fan hopes to be drinking at the ballpark, Oktoberfest! Catch one in the second season while watching the games at Brewer's Alley’s downtown brewpub.

Deadrise Summer Ale, Flying Dog: This was a tough call as Flying Dog is rightfully famous for their hop-forward favorites, and they have been killing it with their line of spiced chili beers, but for baseball in Maryland, you’ve got to try a Deadrise. Named for the traditional workboats of the Chesapeake and spiced with Old Bay seasoning, it is the ideal light ale for hot summer days at the park. But figure out your favorite with a tour of the amazing Flying Dog Brewery.

Goldie’s Best Bitter, Milkhouse Brewery: An English-style bitter, improved by dry-hopping with Chinooks from Milkhouse’s own Stillpoint Farm. A classic example of the style, and perfect for taking in a game of rounders. The Milkhouse Brewery at Stillpoint Farm is a must-stop on any beer adventure.

Ginger Ale, Red Shedman Farm: Red Shedman starts with their amazing Farmer’s Daughter Blonde and infuses it with ginger. Crisp and golden with just the right amount of ginger, it’s not over-the-top like a traditional ginger beer, but offers just the right amount of summer flavor. And the Red Shedman Farm Brewery and Hop Yard is another amazing stop on your beer and baseball getaway.  

Extra Innings— Oh Say, Why Not Pay a Tribute to the National Anthem? The Keys aren’t shy about their ties to the National Anthem, and it’s honestly just not a baseball game without hearing The Star-Spangled Banner‑‑ but did you know that Francis Scott Key, the anthem’s author, is buried just a long fly ball from Harry Grove Stadium? Walk over and pay your respects before the game.
