Maryland Crabs and Beer

Each summer, we have an employee crab feed here at the brewery.

Jealous? You should be. We have more crabs, shrimp, hush puppies, and sweet corn to feed an army, along with the 15+ beers in our taproom. And once the sun goes down, one can only imagine the insanity that ensues. 

This epic picking and drinking frenzy is today. So while we're inducing all of this jealousy, we figured we'd share our favorite beers to pair with Maryland Blue Crabs:

UnderDog Atlantic Lager

The newest member of our pack, this crisp, clean, and refreshing lager has bold hop character. And at merely 4.7% ABV, it's a perfect pounder while picking for 6 hours straight. 

In-Heat Wheat Hefeweizen

The clove aroma and flavor, from the yeast strain used in this traditional German-style Hefeweizen, compliments Old Bay seasoning perfectly. 

Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale

The grassy hop notes in our Classic Pale Ale enhance the spice sticking to your fingers, while the malty sweet balance prolongs the sweet meat flavor on your palate. 

Old Scratch Amber Lager 

For those who weren't born with Old Bay in their veins (aka, can't take the spice) the caramel malty sweetness of Old Scratch soothes the heat and makes the richly sweet meat even sweeter.
