Union Craft Brewing

Beer is the union of water, barley, hops and yeast. A brewery is the union of beer, its brewers and the community it serves. Beer Unites! is not just a tagline, its the underlying philosophy of everything we believe in as a business. Good beer brings good people together for good times—and good works.

Situated along the Jones Falls river, in the historic Woodberry neighborhood of Baltimore, the Union Craft Brewery makes great beer and great company. With reverence for tradition and place, we brew beers that unite old and new ideas, the science and craft of brewing, and boldness and balance of flavor. Founded in the fall of 2011 by Kevin Blodger, Adam Benesch and Jon Zerivitz, brewing operations officially began in the spring of 2012 with the installation of a 20 barrel brewhouse and the initial launch of Duckpin Pale Ale.

Peabody Heights Brewery

Peabody Heights was the first brewery to be opened within Baltimore city limits in over 35 years. The brewery takes its name from the original neighborhood name, which has since been changed to Charles Village. The brewery produced its first batch of beer in December 2012 and is now brewing more than 2,000 barrels each month. It is owned and operated by Baltimore-native entrepreneurs and investors.

We offer a unique arrangement that allows small brewers to maintain the independence and integrity of their products. Our members have already spent years perfecting their recipes in garages and brew pubs. They may have already built their own brew house from the ground up, but now need more capacity. They are passionate about their beers, and still deeply involved in every step of the process.

With the guidance of our master brewers, these micro-brewers can use our expandable facility to offer their unique, lovingly crafted products to beer lovers across the mid-Atlantic and beyond.

Hoop Tea

The history behind Hoop Tea is a story about it's creators. Everyone who works here tells the same tale. From diverse backgrounds and distant cities, we all shared a discontent with our monotonous jobs and sedentary lifestyles. We knew that life should be enjoyed, not just endured. Sitting on the sidelines watching other people live out our dreams became unbearable.

Our little crew was banded together when we joined Backshore Brewing Company, a tiny brewhouse on the beach of Ocean City Maryland founded by Danny Robinson. With a desire to craft a local beverages brewed by local people, Danny decided to open the first brewery on the Ocean City peninsula. Recruiting friends with the promise of an unobstructed ocean view from the office and an endless flow of free beer, Backshore came to life in the summer of 2013.

Reckless Ale Works

Here at Reckless Ale Works we have but one question we ask every time we brew a beer. “Do we love it?” We never settle for drinkable or good enough. Our goal is to make the best tasting beer imaginable. That’s not easy to do without a Reckless passion for brewing, and we believe in this so much we named our brewery after this idea.

Since then we have grown and become THE place in Maryland to get some of the most eclectic and hard to find beers on the planet. We used this experience when we started our own brewing adventure, Push Brewing. Push began in 2012 with a small 7-barrel system located inside Frisco Taphouse restaurant. We tweaked and refined our recipes, experimented with new ones , went through a number of brew masters, and in 2015 landed our current brewing genius, Ryan Yerdon. In 2017, everything finally came together. Our new 20 barrel Premier Stainless brewing system was installed in the building adjacent to the restaurant. It also happened to be the exact same location that Adam spent the majority of childhood up till college training as a gymnast on his way to becoming a two time NCAA champion for Penn State. In his own words when asked about his life coming full circle and opening up a business in his childhood stomping grounds- “I can’t believe I’m back in that same damn building”.
