U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) announced today that she has joined the Senate Small Brewers Caucus following a meeting Thursday in Baltimore with members of the Brewers Association of Maryland. At the meeting, Senator Mikulski discussed her commitment to small business jobs and Maryland's craft and micro breweries that strengthen our economy.
"Maryland's small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They create jobs. And they are important to the communities they serve," Senator Mikulski said. "My great-grandparents owned a local bakery and my father ran a grocery store. I learned how small businesses help weave social fabric by hiring local workers and investing in their communities. I'm proud to raise a glass here in Baltimore with Maryland brewers and take the fight to Washington to support small business jobs."
Senator Mikulski was joined by members of the Brewers Association of Maryland including owners, management and brewers from Heavy Seas Beer in Baltimore County, Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, Union Craft Brewery in the City of Baltimore, Evolution Craft Brewery in Salisbury, Ruddy Duck in Solomons and Brewers Alley and Monocacy Brewing Company in Frederick.
