How much does Maryland love its beer? Enough to dedicate an entire month to it. FeBREWary is officially Maryland craft beer lovers’ month—29 days honoring the fine art of brewing barley, hops, yeast and other ingredients into delicious libations.
On Leap Day, February 29th, join your fellow craft beer enthusiasts in Ocean City, Maryland, for Shore Craft Beer Fest: Love on Tap. Now in its fifth year, Love on Tap is a waterfront beer celebration like no other. Enjoy unlimited tastings of more than 40 craft beers from Maryland and Delaware breweries, along with food, games and live music.
To help you celebrate responsibly, Vantage has rentals for your whole brew crew within walking distance of the festivities. And you’ll love the low offseason rates. Check out your options below and book your trip today!
So many beers, just enough time
Love on Tap takes place from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm, with a VIP hour at 12:30 pm, in Ocean City’s Convention Center. Wind your way through and sample the huge variety of local and regional craft beers while taking in the stunning views of Assawoman Bay from wall-to-floor windows.
Some brewers are preparing special beers and batches just for the occasion. Whatever your taste—dark, light, pale or fruity—you’ll find it at Love on Tap. You can also chat with the brewers to get insights into their process and what goes into brewing the perfect barrel. (Don’t expect to learn all their secrets, though.)
Here’s just a small sample of the Maryland and Delaware breweries you’ll come across:
- Backshore Brewing Company
- The Fin City Brewing Company
- Hoop Tea
- Dogfish Head
- Big Oyster Brewery
- Charm City Meadworks
Since it’s never a good idea to drink on an empty stomach, you’ll have food options from a menu carefully chosen by CenterPlate to complement the beer offerings.
You can step outside to play a spirited game of cornhole and dance to the high-energy party rock of FireKite. If you’re among the first 1,000 attendees through the door, you’ll take home a complimentary commemorative pint glass.
