SLURP SUDS, SAVE THE CH­E­SA­PEAKE

Soundings - - Dispatches -

Few things are more sat­is­fy­ing than kick­ing back and re­lax­ing with a cold one on a boat. And while you could cer­tainly pick up any or­di­nary six-pack be­fore your next out­ing, we’ve dis­cov­ered a few new brews you might want to try, es­pe­cially if you’d like to help clean up the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay.

Fly­ing Dog Brew­ery in Fred­er­ick, Mary­land, and Devils Back­bone Brew­ing Com­pany in Lex­ing­ton, Vir­ginia, are pro­duc­ing some tasty bev­er­ages and do­nat­ing the pro­ceeds to good Bay causes. Whether you fancy a pale ale, a crisp sum­mer ale or a thick stout, pur­chas­ing one of th­ese beers will help res­tore oys­ter habi­tat, ad­vo­cate for wa­ter­men in­volved with the blue crab har­vest or clean up the Ch­e­sa­peake. You need only de­cide which one to en­joy, and who the des­ig­nated skip­per will be. The brew­ery will do the rest.
