About The Brewers Association of Maryland
The Brewers Association of Maryland (BAM), founded in 1996, is the non-profit trade association of Maryland brewing companies. The mission of BAM is to promote and protect Maryland craft beer.
The Maryland brewing industry dates back to the American colonial period, when the first brewing company in the colony opened in Annapolis in 1703. With a rich history of over 300 years, Maryland and BAM are committed to continuing the proud tradition of crafting world-class beer in the Old Line State. Maryland craft breweries continue to grow and support local communities, from small business owners to the family farm.
BAM currently sponsors two annual Beer Festivals – the Maryland Craft Beer Festival in Frederick at the Eventplex and Maryland Oktoberfest at the Timonium Fairgrounds. BAM encourages responsible enjoyment of Maryland beer and all alcoholic beverages by legal age adults. www.marylandbeer.org
