What’s New For Maryland Spirits Month
The Maryland Distillers Guild is excited to celebrate Maryland Spirits Month this November. To celebrate, the Guild is launching the printed version of the Maryland Distillers Guild passport to drive consumers directly to your tasting rooms and cocktail lounges.
Unlike last year, the Guild will not host Proof as part of this year’s celebration. While last year’s event was great, the events committee is considering reimagining the consumer experience presented by the Guild. To kick off Maryland Spirits Month, the Brewers Association of Maryland has invited the Guild to present a selection of distilleries at the upcoming Baltimore Craft Beer Festival. Attendees of the craft beer festival will have the opportunity to purchase an add on to enter the spirits showcase and sample from a small number of Maryland distilleries. This lineup of distilleries for this showcase will be selected in a first-come, first-served manner.
