Surfs up in Elkridge! On a beautiful Friday afternoon, I tried out the newly opened Ocean City Brewery. It felt like a little piece of Ocean City dropped into Howard County.
We chose to eat lunch outside, just a few doors down from the Perfect Pour and around the corner from Trader Joe’s. The pilings and palm tree decor were a nice touch for the outside dining. We enjoyed the terrific sound system, playing a great music selection.
The flights of 3, 5-ounce pours came in surfboards, a really creative touch. I’m not usually a fan of watermelon beers but I was surprised at the subtle watermelon wheat – All Righty Then!, probably the best beer of the bunch.
The food was pretty good and the beer was well-presented on a surfboard flight of 3.
Our waiter, Raul, mentioned that OC Brewing had only been open for 3 weeks. He said Friday’s have been their busiest days along with game nights. The many TVs inside are a good draw to watch sports with beer and food.
Ocean City, welcome to Howard County!
