Welcome to RaR Brewing! Keeping it Local, Keeping it Reale.
RaR Brewing opened its doors in the summer of 2013 in downtown Cambridge, MD. Locals Chris Browhan and James Merryweather, buddies since high school, started their RaR adventures as home brewers and now are producing beers right there on Poplar Street where the old pool hall used to be. Browhan and Merryweather stay true to their Eastern Shore roots (their mission is ‘Reale Brew. Reale local.’ by the way) by sourcing many ingredients from local DelMarVa farmers. Much of the fruit, vegetable, and spice that they use to create their crafts are grown locally. Even their 3878 Belgian dark strong ale is made with molasses bought from a local producer. The names, flavors, and vibes of many of their brews are also nods to iconic images of the region. Bottom Feeder, a light crisp and earthy Blonde/Belgian, tips its hat to our beloved Blue Crab. The Nanticoke Nectar, a beautiful fruity, hoppy IPA is named in honor of Nanticoke Indian Tribe. Groove City, a German Style Hefeweizen, acknowledges Cambridge’s very own back-in-the-day nick name. And Bucktown Brown, a brown that features notes of caramel, coffee, and chocolate, pays homage to an old farming village located just outside of Cambridge.
