One bill sought by the Brewers Association of Maryland was killed in a Senate committee this week, while another was approved only after being sharply cut back. Some of the breweries most active in seeking the legislation came out losers. The panel voted down a bill that would have increased the amount of beer the holder of a brewpub license could produce. The main beneficiary of the bill would have been Evolution Craft Brewing in Salisbury. The Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee approved a bill allowing micro-breweries to offer samples and sell beers at farmer's markets only after severely limiting which brewers could participate, according to brewers association executive director J.T. Smith.

Brewer Justin Bonner acknowledges that he used to be more of a wine geek. But he said he stopped short of buying a vineyard on the Eastern Shore when he realized it just how tough it would be to grow quality grapes in Maryland. Nonetheless, the former defense contractor wanted to produce an affordable drink that that he could share with the public. He noticed that more Marylanders were drinking craft beers but suspected that the supply wasn't meeting demand. So he and his business partner Kasey Turner spent $2 million to open Jailbreak Brewing Co., Howard County's first brewery, in March.

Adam Benesch, a co-founder of Union Craft Brewing in Hampden, would like to take his Duckpin Pale Ale to a farmers' market and let consumers taste and buy it. John Knorr, co-owner of Evolution Craft Brewing in Salisbury, just wants to brew more beer. Both want the General Assembly to pass legislation that would help Maryland's burgeoning microbrewery industry continue to grow. Bills that would open farmers' markets and county fairs to tastings and sales by the state's beer producers and raise the limit on how many barrels brewpubs can produce top the 2014 wish list of the Brewers Association of Maryland.

The Brewer's Alley brew pub in the heart of downtown has been chugging along for 15 years, slowly adding artisanal beers to its stable, resisting temptation to expand when it seemed every wannabe brewer with some start-up capital and a disdain for Budweiser got into the craft beer business. This year the pub faced a crucial test: "What we had to decide a little while ago was, either stay at capacity as a small pub, or continue to meet demand and possibly create more demand," said Tom Flores, brewmaster at Brewer's Alley.

State lawmakers from Baltimore County hope to increase the availability of growlers, the refillable jugs that have become popular among craft beer enthusiasts. Sales of growlers have expanded elsewhere in Maryland in recent years, and county lawmakers say they want to keep up with the trend. Legislators have proposed a bill that would create growler permits for county businesses so people could take home beer from the tap. The legislation would allow liquor stores, restaurants and bars to apply for the permits.

Cousins Dan Baumiller and Nick Fertig launched Full Tilt Brewing in December, brewing beers in the basement of Baumiller's Sykesville home. Now, less than a year later, Full Tilt beers are on tap at more than 180 bars and restaurants and sold at more than 500 stores across the state. "We're just two home brewers who are trying to go into business," Baumiller said. "There's so much interest in local beers right now. We hope to open our own brewery in a couple years. " It's heady time for Maryland brewers like Baumiller and Fertig.
