‘Twas the day before the Maryland Craft Beer Festival and all throughout the DMV, DC Beerists were getting restless, waiting to travel for beer and Maryland’s finest yeast.

Brandy ventures outside the DC border to get a sneak peek taste of Maryland’s delicious beer, and talks with Earl Holman from Crooked Crab. Crooked Crab beer has been booming in the DC area over the last year. But the last time we talked with Earl, it was just before the pandemic started, and we had no idea what was ahead of us for the next few years. Earl tells us how Crooked Crab adapted to changing times, how they work to brew beer that every person will find satisfying, and what exciting things are coming up in Crooked Crab’s future.

In other news, we are in full force beer event season! The gang shares everything you need to know about events coming up at Rocket FrogSilver Branch & Old Ox, and gives sneak peeks into DC Pride happenings at DC Brau and the Queer Beer Festival.

Keep up to date with everything happening at DCBeer.com, @DCBeer on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. Email us at beershow@dcbeer.com.
