2500 Grays Road, Dundalk, (410) 477-233, keybrewing.com
With all the industry gone from the Dundalk/Edgemere peninsula, two local brewers decided to open a microbrewery to bring a little pride to the area and introduce the locals to something more flavorful than Bud Light. Since opening the East Baltimore County brewery in 2015, Mike McDonald and Spike Owen have had their products land all over the city and beyond, with their crisp Helles Lager selected as one of the two beers on tap at The Source by Wolfgang Puck in Washington D.C. They also teamed up with Charm City Meadworks to produce a nifty Francis Scott Bee sour ale. Not bad for an area known for being the butt of bad jokes and bad beer.
