Governor’s Cup for Brewing

Governor Ehrlich awards Governor’s Cup certificates to Maryland brewers. Best in show went to Clipper City’s Heavy Seas Loose Cannon Ale.

The awards were sponsored by the Brewer’s Association of Maryland in an attempt to increase the awareness of the many fine Maryland beers. While the brewers were down in Annapolis they were also hoping to do a little lobbying for a law that would make it easier for microbreweries to distribute their goods.

I hope their legislation efforts bear fruit, because Maryland has some mighty tasty beers and it is a shame that they can’t get a wider audience because of Marylands archaic and counter productive distribution laws.
