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 beer holiday to celebrate its World Class Beer and World Class Beauty.

Towns all across the Shore are populated with independent craft breweries, not to mention craft beer-focused bars, restaurants and hotels, that are just waiting for you to come and find your new favorite beer.

FeBREWary 2019 is packed with opportunities for craft beer lovers to explore. The 4th annual Shore Craft Beer Fest: Love on Tap at Seacrets is only getting bigger with each passing year, while food pairing specials are being offered up and down the coast and hotel packages throughout the month work to make the adventure even more accessible. FeBREWary is the best time of the year to come and find out just what makes the Shore a top craft beer destination.

For the fourth year in a row, Shore Craft Beer and Seacrets Jamaica USA present FeBREWary’s Shore Craft Beer Fest: Love on Tap.

The month of love, for craft beer and otherwise, is best celebrated at Love on Tap. Attendees can enjoy live music, unlimited beer tastings, a commemorative cup and the opportunity to speak with local brewers about their beer. VIP ticketholders receive an event t-shirt and an additional hour at the event to taste new beers and mingle with their favorite brewers and brewery reps.

Each brewery brings at least two beers for sampling. 2019’s attending breweries include 3rd Wave, Backshore Brewing Co., Big Oyster, Blue Earl, Dogfish Head, Cult Classic, Evo, Fin City, Fordham & Dominion, Mispillion River, and Tall Tales. Check back here soon to see which beers they’ll have on tap!
