We say it all the time, but FeBREWary really IS our favorite time of year for beer on the Eastern Shore. It’s Craft Beer Lovers Month in Maryland, and even though you’re more than allowed to love beer March through January too, we really go all out celebrating good, local beer this month.
About FeBREWary ShoreCraftBeerFest: Love on Tap FeBREWary is the official, month-long, state-designated celebration of craft beer throughout all of Maryland. Maryland’s Eastern Shore is one region that really goes all-out for the 28-day craft
What’s become a tradition for us in the last few years is our Love on Tap Challenge: Restaurants, bars, and breweries all along the Shore offer Love on Tap Happy Hour Specials through the month, and if you check into just one (1!) on the Shore Craft Beer app, you’ll be automatically entered into ~this year’s giveaway.~
So what’s our giveaway for this year, you might ask?
Drumroll, please… It’s a two-night stay in Ocean City’s brand new Hyatt Place hotel.
All you have to do is drink beer, which you probably would have done anyway, usually at a discounted rate and paired with food (which makes it even better). Then you open up your handy Shore Craft Beer app (links to download below if you don’t have it already), tap “Beer Challenges,” tap “Love on Tap 2019,” and check into wherever you’re currently enjoying a cold one. You can also check into a number of FeBREWary events that are happening this month, including our Trivia Night at Hopper’s FeBREWary Kick-Off (this has already passed, but if you checked in, you’re eligible in our contest already), the Salisbury Chamber’s Bury FeBREWary Beer Festival on Feb. 8, and of course, our Shore Craft Beer Fest: Love on Tap at Seacrets beer festival on Feb. 23. That’s where we’ll be announcing our winner at the end of the festival, and giving beer lovers one last chance to check in until then.
Each check-in gives you one entry into the contest, so the more you check in, the better chance you’ll have to win.
