From Our Editors
People circled around the 15-foot communal tables at Ocean City Brewing Company can tell, even as they sip their pints and flights, that this is more than a brewpub. The evidence glints through the pub's window: imposing stainless brewing tanks. The company is a brewery, too, and one that visitors can tour for an insight into the brewmaster's process. They can even bring their kids—youngsters get root beer samples.
For adults, though, it's all about the flavorful craft beers. The Social X-Periment, for example, blends fruit and malt, and the Pecan Pie Chocolate Stout tastes exactly how it sounds, even though it's not poured into a pie-crust. Pub food such as flatbreads, smash burgers, and the signature egg roll complement the brews, and during Happy Hour, they're available at a discount.
