Last September, the Burley Oak Brewing Company opened up about 8 miles inland in Berlin. The new brewery rapidly gained local popularity, and you can now find their beers in more than 32 bars, including an ever-expanding list in Ocean City. The care with which they make their beers is what has made it a real local favorite. "I think people want a product they connect with more than just your average, mass produced beer," said head brewer Sean Sasscer. "All our beer is made with a lot of love and a lot of local ingredients.

The robust flavor of Heavy Seas Beer's Plank III -- the Belgian-style Trippel recently named "Best of Show: Best Overall Maryland Beer" by the Brewers Association of Maryland at the Comptroller's Cup competition -- comes from a pimento tree.  “It's the wood that they use in Jamaica to smoke or cook jerk chicken or jerk goat,” said brewmaster Christopher Leonard on Wednesday. “Nobody has made beer with this wood before, as far as we know.” It was a risk of Heavy Seas to use the foreign wood in its beer-aging process, but on Saturday at the Maryland Brewers' Harvest event in Fells Point, it paid off. Out of 192 entries from 23 state breweries, Plank III was named the top Maryland beer of the year.

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.

Standing on a hill, this temple of Bacchus rises over the surrounding rowhouse community like a magical storybook castle.After years of vandalism and false starts, the badly decayed American Brewery complex finally seems destined for renovation.Using a combination of city loans, state and federal grants as well as historic tax credits, the Council for Economic and Business Opportunity is in the process of putting together a $1.5 million package to turn the bottling wing into a flexible manufacturing center for light industrial business.

When you hop on a bus loaded with beer drinkers you may not know your exact destination, but you usually have a pretty good idea of where you will end up. Namely, at a spigot dispensing freshly brewed beer. That is what happened to me recently when I joined about 40 other thirsty pilgrims aboard a chartered bus traveling from downtown Baltimore to Victory Brewing Co., a new brewery and restaurant in Downingtown, Pa.I took the trip to improve my understanding of local geography, and to drink a little beer.

Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, the flagship beer of Clipper City Brewing Co., hasn't stayed on shelves of stores across 18 states and Washington, D.C., for long. The thirst of beer drinkers for the India pale-ale-style beer showed no signs of diminishing this year as it made up nearly 50 percent of the brewery's sales, according to a company spokeswoman, Kelly Zimmerman. To meet the demand, the Halethorpe-based brewery stopped production of its imperial cream ale, called Davey Jones Lager, until next summer.

Any craft-beer devotee will tell you the hardest thing about visiting a craft brewery is getting up to leave. Delaware's Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is encouraging more people to stay by going beyond the welcome mat to the spare bedroom - or 16. Having gained a following for its beers, Dogfish Head captured the attention of foodies by integrating flavorful ingredients into its brews. Now it is breaking new ground this summer by opening the Dogfish Inn, a brewery-themed boutique hotel, to accommodate its perpetual influx of craft-brew heads.

For the last few weeks, the future of The Brewer's Art's Ozzy beer has been in question because of a recent cease-and-desist letter from representatives of rock singer Ozzy Osbourne. Finally, co-owner Tom Creegan put the rumors to rest on Wednesday afternoon. "We have agreed to change the name and packaging for the beer formerly known as Ozzy," Creegan said. He declined to elaborate further on the situation between Osbourne's camp and the beer company, but confirmed only the name and packaging were changing - not the recipe.  The Brewer's Art is asking patrons for help in naming the soon-to-be-rebranded beer.

Visitors to farmers' markets would be able to sample and purchase beer made by small Maryland brew pubs under a bill that received final General Assembly approval Thursday. The House unanimously passed the measure, sending it to the governor. It is a stripped-down version of a bill introduced by Sen. Paul Pinsky, a Prince George's County Democrat. Where the original bill would have allowed any Maryland brewery to set up booths at farmers' markets, the amended legislation limits such licenses to far breweries or brew pubs that make fewer than 3,000 barrels a year.

Maryland's craft beer business is growing rapidly — at a rate of 35 percent a year — as consumers increasingly seek out independent brewers' new-style yet traditionally made beers. "There is just an amazing level of interest in craft beer, artisanal products in general, but craft beer specifically," said Jon Zerivitz, co-founder of Union Craft Brewing Co. "It's been growing all over the country. " Both new and existing companies are driving the expansion. Oliver Breweries, the 21-year-old beer-making operation of the Pratt Street Ale House in downtown Baltimore, has outgrown its beer-making space and is opening a small production plant.

The city's Board of Estimates unanimously approved a forgivable, no-interest loan for the project, which officials said they hope will spark revitalization in blighted blocks nearby.

DuClaw Brewing Company is still negotiating to purchase a 167,000-square-foot warehouse in Harford County for a future brewery, the company's president and the site's broker said Tuesday, a project that could make the brewer a major player in the regional craft beer market. Though an original deal fell through, Dave Benfield, the craft brewer's president, is bullish on the project, contrary to an early published report in a local trade.
