On February 1st, Governor Larry Hogan, Comptroller Peter Franchot, Director Kelby Brick, the Maryland Office of Tourism Development, and the Brewers Association of Maryland came together to celebrate the significant economic impact that craft brewing has had in Maryland. Governor Hogan presented a proclamation declaring February as “FeBREWary” in Maryland.

Also present were Deaf entrepreneurs who are in the process of opening up their own breweries. They are:

  • Mark Burke and Sam Costner of Streetcar 82 Brewing Co.
