Checkerspot Brewing Company


We’re Baltimore proud to bring you small batch handcrafted beers inspired by nature right here in the city. The Baltimore Checkerspot is the Maryland state butterfly, which embodies our belief that without local appreciation, nature and quality ingredients, great beer does not exist.

There’s something for everyone here.
