Welcome to Checkerspot Brewing!

What's in a name? A lot, actually.

Fun Fact: The Baltimore Checkerspot butterfly is Maryland's state insect.

Our namesake embodies our belief that without an appreciation of nature, and local, quality ingredients... great beer cannot exist.

We’re proud to bring you an array of small-batch, thoughtfully crafted beers–inspired by nature, but served right here in Baltimore-the city we love. There’s something for everyone here!

Saturday, March 5th from 1 - 4pm (VIP 12pm entry)

For Women's History Month, we have a special event called 200 Years in the Making. We have brewed some beers using 200 years old recipes written by Mary Eaton in collaboration with beer historian, Maureen O'Prey.

Tickets HERE - VIP includes early entry at 12pm and a very special and limited (only 30 available) 12 oz bottle of Pernicious Mary, a 12.8% ale brewed and barreled in March 2019 and bottled March 2020, as per the recipe from 1822.

In 1822, Mary Eaton wrote the definitive book on how to brew quality beer that has stood the test of time, The Cook and Housekeeper’s Complete & Universal Dictionary. Mary was a stickler for quality, and suffered no fools or bad brews! Join us as we share her legacy of remarkable beer.

Special for this event: 3 other small batch beers brewed from Mary Eaton’s 200 year old recipes.

Good Beer (5.7% abv)

She will have her 2 books, Brewing in Baltimore and Beer in Maryland, available for purchase and will be here to sign them.
