Good pubs, Good Beer, Good People

What's in a Name?

Well, a lot, actually. Especially if you're opening a new brewery at the seashore. NJ fans, please stay seated, because this new brewery isn't even in the Garden State.

And your guess is as good as mine as to why it made the news in a Central Jersey newspaper.

But beer news is beer news, irrespective of location, and if any of you are traveling to Maryland's Ocean City (that's if the warm, sunny weather ever gets here and stays), you might find this interesting.

What I found interesting is that the brewery is named Ocean City Brewing, and the company owner's last name is "Shores."

That's like a ski resort owner with the last name of Snow.
Or a Pizza Place owner named Mozzarella.
Or a Russian Vodka company owner named Nazdorovya.
Or a seafood restaurant owned by a guy named Fishman.
You may not want to, but you get my drift.

Anyway, the new brewery, located on a strip referred to as "the Golden Mile," is set for a March 17 opening.

Erin's sons would never roam,
all the boys would stay at home,
If we only had old Ireland over here!
The PubScout suspects that most of his readers might already have made their plans for that special day.

Like going to an Irish pub owned by a guy named Slainte.
