Celebrate feBREWary at Adam’s
We typically associate February with hearts and flowers, but this month we want to add some… hops. That is why we will be celebrating feBREWary from Monday, February 17th to Sunday, February 23rd. It will be an entire week of featuring all Maryland brews. Our 14 taps will be showcasing various breweries and styles. Here is a little bit more about some of the participating breweries.
Burley Oak Brewing Company
Located in Berlin, Maryland. Burley Oak is founded on sustainable practices and using local materials and craftsmen. And it’s not just talk. They have their own farm where they grow indigenous Maryland plants and brewing grains. In the end, their beers speak for themselves. With creative names and infused with tried and true techniques, this is one Maryland brewery you must try.
A bunch of Maryland boys got together in 2013 and brought to life this Maryland staple. RAR Brewery is located in Cambridge, Maryland and was built in a former pool hall that is over 80 years old. Like many Marylanders, for them, it was about creating something new and giving respect to the history of the past. From stouts to IPAs there is a brew for everyone.
Cult Classic Brewing Company
This brewery is located in our neck of the woods on Kent Island. Even though they opened in 2018, don’t let that fool you. Native Annapolis brothers, Brooks and Jesse McNew, have been perfecting their craft for over 20 years. And both have different styles. Brookes likes to focus on classic European beers while Jesse specializes in high-gravity alcohol, hop-focused craft beers. Now that’s a combination we can get behind.
Evolution Craft Brewing Company
Another tale of two Maryland brothers. This time their passions are split between brews and food. And what a combination Tom and John make. Their top-rated beers are meant to be enjoyed with food. Located in Salisbury, Maryland, Evolution was built on the idea that quality beers and food bring friends and family together.
Reckless Ale Works
When they say brewed for adventure, they don’t lie. This Columbia, Maryland brewery started in 2016. Rules books aren’t for them, and we are so glad. Creating bold flavors and challenging conventional beer-making brings us some great brews. Being local, they try to use ingredients that are local too. For example, their Death Meta Diva Coffee Milk Stout uses coffee from Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company.
Jailbreak Brewing Company
The name says it all. Jailbreak is about freedom of expression and you can tell in the taste of their beers. Started in 2013, they are located in Laurel, Maryland. Since then they have just continued to grow. Jailbreak also does a lot of collaborations on their beers, with local restaurants, other Maryland breweries, cities, and more. It’s their fun vibes and lack of drama that will bring you back every time. That’s why we are featuring them for feBREWary.
Elder Pine Brewing & Blending Company
This Gaithersburg, Maryland brewing company has something a little extra added to its name. Why? Because they believe blending is a crucial part of the brewing process. Blending flavors, textures, aromas and more. To them, it’s about finding the perfect balance. Built on the family farm, their main focus is on classic beer styles with a modern twist.
True Respite Brewing Co.
Brendan O’Leary turned his hobby into his passion. Starting home brewing in the mid-2000s. It wasn’t until 2011 co-founder Bailey O’Leary joined in on his passion. This brewery was in the making since 2014. So when it opened in 2018, there was a lot of thought and love put into it. From the beginning, they knew it was a place they wanted the community to gather, enjoy great beers, and have a good time.
Union Craft Brewing
When you understand that beer is the union between water, barley, hops, and yeast, you understand the name of this fine brewery. They also live on the mission that a brewery is a union between brewers and their communities. This couldn’t be more true for Union Craft Brewing. They are located within the Union Collective business hub in the Medfield neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland. Founded in 2011, they continue to expand and create perfect unions. See which one will be featured in our feBREWary line-up!
Flying Dog Brewery
Not always a Maryland brewery, this Colorado native actually got its start over 3 decades ago in a Pakistan hotel room. It wasn’t until 2006 that Flying Dog Brewery expanded to Frederick, Maryland. It now is the largest brewery in the state, closing it’s Colorado location. The brews, their names, and artwork are famous all over. If you haven’t tried one of their beers, we just don’t know where you have been.
Heavy Seas Beer
This is a story of the brewery before it’s time. When Hugh, the owner, and his father thought of opening a brewpub, it was illegal in Maryland. (WHAT?!) Sadly, yes. But they helped change the game. With the support of Senator George Della, a bill was passed in 1987 to reverse that awful law. Hugh started brewing in 1989. Today, Heavy Seas produces 18 different beer styles and has become one of the most award-winning craft breweries on the East Coast. We all can cheers to that!
Manor Hill Brewing
In June 2015, Manor Hill became the first brewing farm in Howard County. So it comes as no surprise that their ingredients are locally sourced. They grow 2 acres of hopes and currently have the following varieties: Centennial, Chinook, Nugget, and Cascade. Manor Hill creates amazing hand-crafted beers that are rich in flavor. Come see what we will be featuring for feBREWary.
Monument City Brewing Company
Maryland, brothers, beer – it’s a special receipt for great brews. This brewing company is no different, except of course their beers do stand out. Using traditional American brewing techniques, these two brothers came together to make something honest, delicious, and timeless. Located in Baltimore, Monument City not only worked hard on their brews but the design of their cans. The simple, elegant style is an ode to Baltimore’s manufacturing heritage. Taste a beer and fall in love.
So are you ready to help us celebrate feBREWary? We are! Come in all week long. As always, Thursday will feature all these beers at $5 each all day long. Don’t miss out!
