Bottoms Up! Four Southern Maryland Breweries and Distilleries to Sample

Southern Maryland’s status as a wine region is well established, but in the last few years, the locally made libations made in Southern Maryland have expanded to include breweries and even a distillery!

Consider these Southern Maryland brews the next time you’re looking to stock your bar!


Calvert Brewing Company: Calvert Brewing Company is the first designated farm brewery in Maryland, with a small farm brewing system at the Running Hare Vineyard in Prince Frederick. The vineyard is also home to Calvert Brewing’s beer garden. Now, the brewery has a taproom and production brewery in Upper Marlboro with tastings, tours, growler fills, entertainment, and more every weekend. (Image via Calvert Brewing on Facebook)


Mully’s Brewery: Making beer in Prince Frederick since 2013, Mully’s takes its name from owners Jason and Cindy Mulligan, self-described “beer nerds” who turned their homebrew hobby into an award-winning production brewery. The tasting room hosts tours, tastings, and growler fills every weekend, as well as other special events. (Image via Mully’s Brewery on Facebook)


Scorpion Brewing Company: Since October 2014, Scorpion Brewing has been making beer in Owings. Named for the Scorpion, the flagship of a flotilla that fought the British in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries during the War of 1812.  The brewery is open weekends for tastings, tours, and growler fills every weekend and hosts live entertainment on Thursday night.

BlueDyer Distilling Company: Distilling is part of the family history of BlueDyer Distilling. Named for the “blue diers” who created fabric dyes – and often did a little distilling on the side – the distillery produces rum and whiskey at its Waldorf facility. Fun fact: The distillery is owned by a current cop and a recently retired cop who retired to run the distillery! You can stop by on Saturdays and Sundays to taste and learn more.
