Whether or not you're a local, there is a fantastic way to kick off your Saturday this June 24. Our friends at 3rd Wave are having their first big can release that morning. They're releasing their reimagined Bomboda (a DIPA that was already astounding) in four-packs of 16 ounce cans. Plus they are releasing their [...]

Canning day at 3rd Wave Brewing in Delaware is a big deal  I popped into 3rd Wave one random afternoon recently to check on the canning line's progress. Lori Clough, one of the owners, let me know I was about 24 hours too early. The line had arrived a few days before and the assembly process [...]

This is what a Craft Beer destination looks like

By | 2017-03-08T08:21:41+00:00 March 9th, 2017|3rd Wave, Blogs, Dogfish Head, Fin City, The State of the Beer|

The Eastern Shore is a craft beer destination not because most bars here serve rare craft beers, but because they serve local craft beers. When I started covering the Ocean City HMRA show a decade ago there were two beer bars, and they always were packed. I collected bottle caps at the time and was [...]

It Takes Two: Craft Beer Love stories

By | 2017-02-14T08:43:25+00:00 February 14th, 2017|3rd Wave, FeBREWary, Love Stories|

In the summer of 2015, we discovered the Shore Craft Beer challenges via a pamphlet my husband picked up for me at 3rd Wave Brewery. This is significant because not only does my husband drink very little, and drink no beer, he doesn't even like beer. So it was purely with me in mind that [...]

Celebrating four years of 3rd Wave

By | 2016-12-08T08:56:19+00:00 September 27th, 2016|3rd Wave, Breweries, Events, Featured Craft Beer Festivals, News|

According to the absolute first Google search return, fruit and flowers are the appropriate gift for the fourth anniversary. I'm sure they were referring to wedding anniversaries, but the idea, the internet said, behind fruit and flowers is in the hope and support of fertility and renewal. That was enough to register it as a [...]

Finding the right space: 3rd Wave Brewing

By | 2016-12-08T08:56:23+00:00 April 6th, 2016|3rd Wave, Beer with Strangers, Podcasts|

In this week's Beer with Strangers sub episode we speak with 3rd Wave salesperson Traci Huggans about her time driving from tip to tip of the peninsula and beyond sharing the 3rd Wave gospel. Traci started out in the hospitality industry but eventually moved into working for a distributor and eventually leveraged that experience into [...]

3rd Wave Sandstorm Belgian Tripel with Apricot Stilton

By | 2016-12-08T08:56:25+00:00 February 9th, 2016|3rd Wave, Blogs, Breweries, The State of the Beer|

This is a continuation of a blog about the Shore Craft Beer Talk and Tasting held at the Clarion Fountainebleu in early 2016. When Belgian Tripels are done well you can't really taste the alcohol, even when the beer is in the 9 percent range, as Sandstorm is.  Broadly speaking tastings are fun when they [...]

A Last-minute Gift Guide for the Beer Lovers on Your List

By | 2016-12-08T08:56:26+00:00 December 17th, 2015|3rd Wave, Blogs|

It just hit me that we’re well into the 12 days of Christmas and I have figured out exactly zero of my gift giving plans. I love the holidays and while waiting till the last minute doesn’t make me a humbug, I’ll be the first to admit, it does produce a bit of self-inflicted stress. [...]

Great things are brewing

By | 2016-05-12T05:41:17+00:00 September 22nd, 2015|3rd Wave, Assawoman Bay Brewing, The State of the Beer|

Generally I hate beer puns and "Good things are brewing" is among my least favorite, but there is so much going on I couldn't resist. In fact, rather than one comprehensive post, I thought a bunch of brief updates would be more appropriate. This will be and has been a busy week in Shore Craft Beer soso stay tuned [...]

Breweries are economic engines

By | 2016-12-08T08:56:28+00:00 August 12th, 2015|3rd Wave, The State of the Beer|

I’ve been writing about the economic development aspect of beer for a long time and sometimes it is easy to forget that not everyone is aware of how critical a part of the local economy craft beer has become, but there is an aspect beyond pure economic development that doesn’t get talked about much. Real [...]

Riding the 3rd Wave of success

By | 2016-12-08T08:56:29+00:00 May 20th, 2015|3rd Wave, Breweries, Featured Articles|

AmericanCraftBeer.com, May 20, 2015, by Anthony Towey What do surfing, pizza making, science degrees, and brewing beer have in common? Not much. But 3rd Wave Brewing Company, Delmarva’s first and only all-woman owned brewery may not be here without all three. Like many of us who grow up on the Delmarva Peninsula, Lori Clough and [...]

3rd Wave bottles and its great

By | 2015-09-16T11:46:57+00:00 April 9th, 2015|3rd Wave, The State of the Beer|

I’m going to come right out and say it: I’m a beer conservative. Fast growth makes me wary. Like most conservatives I have what I consider a rational fear of change and worry whether new wrinkles are  ill- or well-conceived and if they will force me to make changes in my life I rather would [...]
