What’s Brewing?
Mason-Dixon Breweries

OK, so we know that certain types of wine have positive health
effects and that it’s easy to spend hours and hours talking about a
wine’s nose and region of origin. I, myself, enjoy a nice glass of wine
now and then; however, sometimes – especially on a hot, steamy
day – there is nothing quite like a cold beer. While working in the
backyard, a Miller Lite, Yuengling or a classic “Natty Boh” will surely do,
but the next time you go out to dinner or to a nearby pub, why not
try out a local brew? Once regulated to a few breweries here and there,
the Mason-Dixon region, as well as our friends to the east, Delaware,
is now full of local brew masters whose creativity and skill are
seen in their various concoctions. Here are a few of our favorites:
