Made in MD: Cardin to Knock Down Duckpins, Spotlight Small Business Growth at Baltimore’s Union Craft Brewing

TODAY, Friday, June 24 at 1:00 PM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), a senior member of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee, will take his “Made in MD” jobs tour toUnion Craft Brewery, whose “beer unites!” philosophy has propelled exceptional growth since producing the first batch of its flagship “Duckpin Pale Ale” in 2012.

“I created my “Made in MD” jobs tour to celebrate the diversity of Maryland-made products and the Marylanders who create them, and Union Craft Brewing is a prime example of a business expanding the regional reach of its brand by staying true to its local roots,” said Senator Cardin. “I have introduced legislation in the Senate to help ensure that small breweries can compete in the marketplace on a level playing field, and will continue to fight for it and other measures so Maryland small businesses and our manufacturing sector remain vital.”
