Glad to see so many home brewers on the shore. I currently live in Millington, grew up in
Chestertown, and brew in St. Michaels at Eastern Shore Brewing. If any of you guys want to come
down and check...

I would suggest a German pilsner malt for your base malt. That would get you cleaner and
sweater flavors. Personally I would skip the wheat and just go with a whole pound of cara-pils.
They both will ...

Hello all, I'm working on a project for a college class right now and I want to explain the

I agree that a sell on premises facility is pretty necessary, but I don't think it has to be a

nice setup ...
