Beer under the gray October sky: Photos from OCtoberfest 2018

We were a little nervous looking at the forecast the week leading up to OCtoberfest, but when everyone on the Eastern Shore began canceling their Halloween events scheduled for the 27th, we just held our breath and crossed our fingers. It wasn’t a beautiful day, but it didn’t rain and we didn’t totally freeze. And […]

Howlin’ Good Time: The Dogs of Shore Craft Beer’s OCtoberfest

Not only is OCtoberfest the biggest annual craft beer festival in Ocean City, but it’s also the one that’s most kid- and pet-friendly.

One decade of Brews on the Beach is in the books, following this year’s annual West Ocean City beer fest that ALMOST got rained out but then, thankfully, didn’t. Below are some of our favorite photos from this year’s Brews on the Beach. If you missed it, or if you made it out and just […]

Pumpkin ale: A round-up of the local fall brews

The changing of the seasons from summer to fall signifies lots of great things to come, like cozy sweaters, pumpkin patches and haunted hay rides.
