Guest Host: Marc Fisher

Guinness is planning to build a brewery and taproom in Maryland — its first in the United States in more than 60 years. The company’s entry into the state’s beer industry, and the U.S. market at large, is a boon for local government officials eager to create jobs and put the spotlight on the Old Line State. But Maryland’s existing craft brewers are uncertain about what the move might mean for them. We explore the state’s future in beer-making and what one pending bill might mean for breweries large and small.
