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.

We explore the state’s future in beer-making and what one pending bill might mean for breweries large and small.
