May 23rd, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Comptroller Peter Franchot introduced The Maryland Baseball & Brew Scorecard promotion encouraging travel across Maryland to experience craft breweries and baseball-themed attractions and to grow the craft beer and tourism industries. Baseball & Brew is a partnership between the Brewers Association of Maryland, the Maryland Comptroller’s Office and the Maryland Office of Tourism, a division of the Maryland Department of Commerce.
Comptroller Franchot, industry partners and officials gathered at Peabody Heights Brewery in Baltimore to introduce the promotion and begin distribution of the Official Maryland Baseball & Brew Scorecard. “Maryland has a proud and rich heritage in both baseball and the brewing industries,” said Comptroller Peter Franchot. “This new Baseball & Brew Scorecard promotion encourages Marylanders and tourists alike to explore every region of our wonderful state and experience the sights and sounds of baseball and the taste of our award-winning craft beer.”
Ben Wu, Assistant Secretary of the Maryland Department of Commerce said, “Breweries are economic engines for the communities in which they choose to establish themselves.” He noted that other small businesses such as food trucks, restaurants, boutique shops and artist studios tend to establish themselves around the breweries thus creating a thriving community that attracts visitors and improves quality of life in those neighborhoods.
