Download the App to Join the Club

We are redoubling our efforts to make the Shore a top craft beer destination with the help of the Rural Maryland Council.  They funded our Shore Craft Beer App and now, if you download the App, you are a member of our exclusive club.   We are  devoted to our “shore life”  which is a celebration of all that the eastern shores of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia offer.  This celebration includes local seafood, small towns, Salisbury University, the ocean, the coastal bays, events and festivals, and, of course, local craft beer.

For 2021 – Monthly Cruises on the Alyosha, a 50′ Catamaran for Club Members ONLY!

For 2021, we have added monthly sails on the Alyosha, a 50 foot catamaran that has sailed around the world and will now host you on a 2 hour cruise around Ocean City while you enjoy local craft beer with a local brewer or with Shore Craft Beer.  You can bring your own food or get take-out at one of the many local restaurants.  We will discuss the local brewery scene and you can try some of the local beers.  This is a match made in heaven – local craft beer on a big sailboat to watch the sunset with other Shore Craft Beer lovers.  Join us on June 24th for this month’s cruise!

The first farm brewery in Worcester County, Sinepuxent Brewing offers great beer in a farm setting 10 minutes from Ocean City

Find New Breweries

Have you visited Worcester County’s newest brewery, Sinepuxent Brewing located on Route 611 near Ocean City?  This is the first farm brewery in this county and it has big plans.  Throughout COVID, you could visit this brewery and sit outside at one of the many picnic tables and enjoy fresh, local craft beer.  They also offer hard seltzer made with blueberries grown on the farm.  You are only 10 minutes from Ocean City here so it’s worth a trip.  They had roaring fires in pits near each table all winter to keep you warm.  Now, Sinepuxent Brewing  is ready to cool you down with a cold refreshing pint.  The Shore Craft Beer App will guide you there and to all of the other fabulous breweries on the Shore.  And, we will soon reward you for going!

Participate in Ground Breaking Research

The Rural Maryland Council also funded a ground-breaking research project on local craft beer and tourism.  We would appreciate your taking a few minutes to complete our survey and everybody who does will be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate from one of our local breweries.  We are giving away 2 $25 gift certificates each week to survey participants.
