When a Bill Becomes a Law: Oliver & Grimsley’s Client Takes on State Government to Save and Advance Business By Creating New State Law to Regulate the Production of Malt Beverages

A special congratulations to Oliver & Grimsley’s client, Evolution Craft Brewing Company® (“EVO”), that played an instrumental role in advancing Maryland State House Bill 1039 (the “EVO Bill” [PDF])  that was signed into law on May 12, 2015.

This bill raised the Wicomico County, Maryland limit on the number of barrels of malt beverages from 22,500 to 45,000 that a micro-brewery may collectively brew, bottle, or contract for in a calendar year.  With this change, the brewing company is able to keep its current staff and create new jobs.

Evolution Craft Brewing Company features expertly crafted brews including mainline, seasonal, barrel aged, and special beers.  Visit the brewery and elevate your experience with friends by gathering in EVO’s relaxed tasting room where you can sample over 10 varieties of craft beers.  EVO also offers a variety of unique culinary fare at its artisanal restaurant located on site in Salisbury, Maryland.

EVO has won a number of awards for its top-rated craft beers and delicious eats, including its most recent accolades in Men’s Journal where Lot #3 IPA was named one of the “70 Great Beers You’ve Never Heard Of”.  In addition, in Draft Magazine Nouveau Rouge® was ranked “Top 25 Beers of 2013”, and Lot #6 Double IPA® and Exile Red Ale were rated 94, with Menagerie No. 5 receiving a 96 rating.  Also, Evolution Craft Brewing Company has been the recipient of Coastal Style Magazine “Best of Winner 2014”, the Metropolitan Magazine “Best American Restaurant” and “Creative Menu & Best Burgers Winner 2014”.

Some of EVO’s most notable craft beers include:  Main Line Beers–Exile Red Ale, Lot #3 IPA, Lucky 7 Porter, Primal Pale Ale, and Lot #6 Double IPA®.  Award winning and favorite food picks include: the gourmet burgers—the duck confit burger, and the surf & turf burger, the EVO dip sampler, spicy Virginia clams, the artesian charcuterie and cheese selection, and the nightly fresh fish selection.

Oliver & Grimsley’s client, Bloomery Plantation Distillery, has mastered the art of crafting home-grown, natural fruit cordials, and a variety of flavored liqueurs. Located on a 12-acre farm, in Charles Town, West Virginia, Bloomery Plantation Distillery restored and transformed an 1840s, abandoned log cabin and created a charming mini-distillery where the owners of the distillery make artisan cordials by hand from their farm’s own lemons, raspberries, and other farm-fresh ingredients.

In October 2010, after returning from Italy, the owners of Bloomery Plantation went on a quest to find the best limoncello in America. Wanting to replicate the taste and experience of that wonderful Italian trip, the owners became enamored with making their own limoncello.

Since then, Bloomery Plantation Distillery has crafted a variety of SweetShines, from the original Limoncello, to Chocolate Raspberry, to Peach ‘Shine, to their proprietary Raspberry Lemon, to their “Moonshine Milkshake Cremma Lemma.” Other flavors include, Black Walnut, Ginger Shine, Hard Lemonade, Seasonal Pumpkin Spice, and the newest flavor: Cranberry Clementine.
