State Fair’s Local Beer Schedule

Brewer's Association of Maryland provides plenty of locally brewed craft beer options

Local beer lovers, you’re in luck.

The Brewer’s Association of Maryland (BAM) will be in attendance at this year’s Maryland State Fair, giving visitors the opportunity to sample the most unique craft beer from all over the state.

Fourteen of the best local breweries will have beer featured in BAM’s nine-day run at the State Fair.

BAM, founded in 1996, participates in various statewide events in order to publicize its mission to the public, while simultaneously introducing Maryland residents to the best locally brewed beer.

Maryland State Fair visitors will be able to enjoy their choice of eight daily-featured draft beers for only $5 per 16oz pint.

“The Maryland State Fair is a celebration of our state, focused on educating the general public on the importance of agriculture,” said JT Smith, BAM’s executive director. “The Brewer’s Association of Maryland is proud to take an active role of support to further that education, via the exhibiting of locally brewed beer, as a refreshing illustration of continued significance of Maryland agriculture and its related industry.”

BAM will be stationed in the Maryland Foods Pavilion Aug. 21-24 and and Aug. 28-Sept. 1, and this schedule explains which beers will be featured each day.
