Eastern Shore Brewing

2010/07/30

On the way to our stay at The Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michael’s, Maryland.  I wasn’t expecting much in the way of a beer scene in this quaint little town, but to my surprise they actually had a small local brewery.  A little place by the name of Eastern Shore Brewery.  We stopped in one day to check out what they had to offer.

The tasting room is what you would expect of a small privately owned brewery.  Because well it’s a working brewery not a bar.  The space is fairly large and I do admit when we went they were just moving into the space so it wasn’t done yet so that’s what i’ll say about that.  We got to meet Owners/Brewmaster husband and wife team Adrian and Lori Moritz.  Both friendly people that make you feel welcome and have a good knowledge of beer.

The picture above is the tasting you can have there. Five beers, I think they were 4oz pours for 8$.  In my opinion that’s not a bad deal.  For the most part what i’ve see tastings are 10$ or more.  The list of beers include Lighthouse Ale, which is there offering for those teetering on the edge of the abyss of mass produced beer.  Cherry House which is basically there fruit beer offering. Magic Heifivizen, St. Michael’s Ale a Amber Ale, and last and I think the best is Duck Duck Goose a German Brown Porter.  I’ll have more in depth reviews of some of the beer I brought home later on.  If your ever in the St. Michael’s area it’s definitely worth stopping by.

Vacation Refreshment

2010/07/03

Sara and I are back from our 1 year anniversary trip.  We traveled up to D.C. on the way there hitting stop and go traffic at midnight and then having air conditioning problems.  Not much worse then being 8 hours from home in 90 degree heat at midnight and a malfunctioning ac unit.  Luckily in the morning it was working somewhat but still smelling like burnt rubber.  On the second day we got to enjoy the Natural History and American History Museums. On the third day we hit up the Holocaust, Air and Space Museums and most of the Monuments on the Mall.

From there we moved onto St. Michael’s Maryland for our stay at The Inn at Perry Cabin.  The weather really came through for us not really getting over 80 the whole time.  Riding bikes through the little downtown area was just a nice little recharge.

Beer wise.  Here’s a little preview.

In D.C. we went to the Brickskeller.  Service wasn’t very good but I did get to try my first BrewDog creation

In Maryland we hit up a local brewery called Eastern Shore Brewing .

And last but not least we drove the back roads of Delaware to make it to Dogfish Head.  Then making our way down to their Brewpub in Rehoboth Beach.

A good trip and I’m looking forward to  getting more in depth about the beer experiences.

Cheers
