Maryland breweries could soon sell beer on site

Fans of craft beer could pull up a stool and have a pint at big Maryland breweries this summer under legislation passed by the House of Delegates on Saturday.


  1. Thanks for the coverage! I do want to be clear however and state that this only applies to a Class 5 Manufacturing Brewery (Eastern Shore Brewing Co, Union Craft Brewery, Flying Dog, Heavy Seas, DuClaw, etc), as a Class 7 (Evolution Craft Brewing, The Brewer’s Art, etc) already has the ability to sell beer by the glass.

  2. We are in the process of opening a Class 5 package brewery so this and a few other Bills (recently passed) mean quite a bit to the short and long term viability of our company. I applaud MD legislature for their recognition of an up-and-coming market which can not only add jobs in our community but compliment MD’s tourism market. We are looking to open in Howard County but due to current zoning laws, we might be forced to open in Baltimore County. Currently, Anne Arundel County does not allow for Class 5 brewing in any of it’s industrial zones. Bravo again to the MD legislature for getting this one right. Now it’s up to us to maximize the opportunity.
