Breweries in Maryland produce a wide range of beers in different styles that are marketed locally, regionally, and nationally. In 2012 Maryland's 34 brewing establishments (including breweries, brewpubs, importers, and company-owned packagers and wholesalers) employed 320 people directly, and more than 20,000 others in related jobs such as wholesaling and retailing.[1] Altogether, 35 people in Maryland had active brewer permits in 2012.[2]

Including people directly employed in brewing, as well as those who supply Maryland's breweries with everything from ingredients to machinery, the total business and personal tax revenue generated by Maryland's breweries and related industries was more than $571 million.[3] Consumer purchases of Maryland's brewery products generated more than $210 million extra in tax revenue.[4] In 2012, according to the Brewers Association, Maryland ranked 37th in the number of craft breweries per capita with 30.[5] As of May, 2014, 29 breweries are members of the Brewers Association of Maryland.[6]

Brewing companies vary widely in the volume and variety of beer produced, from small nanobreweries and microbreweries to massive multinational conglomerate macrobreweries. For context, at the end of 2013 there were 2,822 breweries in the United States, including 2,768 craft breweries subdivided into 1,237 brewpubs, 1,412 microbreweries and 119 regional craft breweries.[7] In that same year, according to the Beer Institute, the brewing industry employed around 43,000 Americans in brewing and distribution and had a combined economic impact of more than $246 billion.[8]
