Why the Checkerspot name?

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

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 GLUTEN REDUCED beers–inspired by nature, but served right here in Baltimore-the city we love. There’s something for everyone here!
