FeBREWary

FeBREWary is Maryland’s official month-long celebration of craft beer! With craft brew events on tap across the state, it’s the perfect time for a beer lover's getaway! Howard County is home to Maryland's best craft brew trail and this month there are no shortage of reasons to come visit.

Check back often to stay up-to-date on the sweet deals regarding all of the special FeBREWary happenings in Howard County!

In FeBREWary Oliver Brewing Company will feature the return of Bourbon Barrel aged Hot Monkey Love for Valentines day, (one of their most popular long running seasonals) and also the return of Pagan Science DIPA! You'll find these special brews for a limited time at The Ale House Columbia!

In honor of FeBREWary, Maryland breweries have been challenged to craft their own “Cupid’s Curse” beer and Howard County's Black Flag Brewing Company accepted the call. Each recipe will be unique and will remain a deep, dark delicious secret until the first pour. Breweries will be tapping their Cupid’s Curse on February 3rd at 5:00 P.M. when Governor Hogan offers his official toast to FeBREWary. We recommend giving Black Flag's take a try, use social media to tell us what you think #CupidsCurseMD #HowardOnTap.
