As Fordham’s reputation spread throughout the Chesapeake region, the brewery made the decision to relocate to Dover, Delaware in 2003, where we had room to expand.

Charm City Meadworks was born out of a love of adventure and learning.
Co-owner James Boicourt began keeping bees in college where he took graduate-level entomology classes. When his hives produced way more honey than excepted, he decided to try to use some of the excess honey to make alcohol. The experiment worked and a hobby was born.
After college, James’s love for the water led him to a job at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, where he met fellow brew enthusiast and future co-owner Andrew Geffken. Andrew had been working environmental consultant desk-jobs, but dreamed of starting a brewing business.
One day Andrew tried some of James’s mead. Working together, what started as a hobby (something served at an annual Viking party) quickly became a full-fledged business. It turns out that the oldest alcoholic beverage in history is still relevant, and more importantly, delicious.
Abandoning engineering and sustainability jobs to work a lot more for a lot less (but have a great time doing it!), James and Andrew launched Baltimore City’s only meadery in early 2014. Ever since, they’ve been movin’ and brewin’. Charm City and the nectar of the gods are a match made in heaven.
Diamondback Brewing Co. would like to reintroduce itself.
In the fall of 2014, when three recent college graduates — Colin Marshall, Francis Smith and Tom Foster — launched their Baltimore beer company, they figured getting a flagship product into the market quickly was most important, so the friends rushed their 3:30 Amber Ale to local bars and storeS.
Since then, Diamondback Brewing Co. has grown up in a big way, evidenced by the company’s new 6,800-square-foot brewery and 50-seat taproom in Locust Point that opened the first weekend in November. Throw in new styles of beer, an updated logo and an overall new approach, and it’s easy to see why Diamondback hopes you’ll allow it to make a second impression.
In 2008 Full Tilt Brewing owners and cousins Nick Fertig and Dan Baumiller were a world apart but connected by their passion for good beer. It was that year that each independently started looking into home brewing. Nick, while serving in the U.S. Navy and, Dan, working in acquisitions for the Department of Defense began researching the possibilities of entrepreneurship through brewing beer. Nick got out of the Navy in August of 2008 and he and Dan began discussing beer brewing immediately as both a hobby and entrepreneurial dream. They purchased a homebrew kit shortly thereafter and have since transitioned a joyful hobby into a sharable passion.
By combining traditional and modern ingredients to develop uniquely crafted beers, Full Tilt Brewing has built a grass roots following in the Baltimore City region. Utilizing this network of family and friends for feedback, Full Tilt Brewing has tested each of its designs in order to provide the highest level of quality and taste.

Cisco Brewers was founded by Randy and Wendy Hudson. Wendy started home brewing with some friends while living in California, but in 1992 she returned to the island and met Randy. Instantly, she not only knew that Randy was her soul mate, but that he would make a great brewer. And so she bought him a kit.
Randy tried one recipe using malt extract, then ditched the book and converted a little pasta roller machine (they never used it anyway, who does?) into a grain mill. All the time he had spent working at Something Natural, a bakery on Nantucket, had given him an intuitive feel for working with yeast and grain. He was right in his element as they say. If Wendy needed to be further impressed to stick with this guy, after trying his beer, she was!
When Randy and Wendy started selling beer, the entire operation-except the cold room, which was cooled by an air conditioner-was outdoors in the Lon’s back yard. Wendy always called the original setup a “nano-brewery” because althought they dreamed about it, they certainly were not yet a “micro.” Many people thought it looked like they were making moonshine and they were right! Cisco Brewers had the distinction of being America’s Only Outdoor Brewery.

The FX Matt Brewing Company is the only brewery in American to have three district tours in craft beer.

Finally, we came full circle back to our craft roots when we initiated the Saranac brand in the mid-80’s. Why does all of this matter? It Means we’ve got a whole lot of expertise in the craft space. We share a passion for craft and strive to create beers that are distinctive yet drinkable.
