SLURP SUDS, SAVE THE CHESAPEAKE
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.
