Drink Local Craft Beer Brewed in Chesapeake City, MD

Become a Bayhead Great Beer, Good Vibes & Good Company

Bayheads® Brewing Company was founded in 2016 when a couple of lifelong friends established a brewery in their hometown of Chesapeake City, MD. While living along the eastern shore at the head of the Chesapeake Bay, we often enjoy boating and drinking great beer. This upbringing and lifestyle helped shape us into the people we are today, and it ultimately led to the name Bayheads®. We hope to share this same culture with you. Are you ready to become a Bayhead?
