There isn't much wasted space inside Calvert Brewing Company's 30,000 sq. ft. facility. Fermenters, stacks upon stacks of kegs, and a taproom all fill the building, yet perhaps the most essential items wait outside: locally sourced ingredients and hops that's grown on their farm in Prince Frederick.
Calvert Brewing Company comes from the same minds as Running Hare Vineyard, who now throw their passion into a core menu that includes a Good Company Pale Ale, a Wye Rye, and a Route 4 IPA. These selections flow from taps alongside one-off beers and other special brews, which visitors can sip out in the beer garden during live concerts and other special events. Calvert Brewing Company also supplies its beers to restaurants and bars throughout Maryland so that visitors don't have to keep any stored in their cheeks if they want some later.
Having finished a project that was nine years in the making following a destructive fire, Colonial Beach Yacht Center's owner, Kyle Schick, and his daughter Robin proudly hoisted their Virginia Clean Marina flag in 2011. The newly overhauled marina had undergone a series of transformations, from recycling more than 4,000 pounds of metal from the yard to installing its own recycling centers. In addition to slip rentals and a dockside restaurant, the center also offers canoe and kayak rentals for an eco-friendly way to explore the surrounding waterways.
