Maryland Opening Applications for Alcohol Manufacturing Fund

A new government program will help enhance Maryland’s breweries, wineries, and distilleries throughout the state.

The Maryland Alcohol Manufacturing Promotion Fund – which is available to government entities and certain nonprofits – was created to support the creation and expansion of the state’s alcohol industry. The fund will award grants to applicants to educate the public about beverage manufacturing; encourage minority business ownership in the industry; create incentives for the use of local agricultural products in production; and more.

As a major economic generator, Maryland’s alcohol manufacturing industry supports more than 9,500 jobs and brings in more than $1.2 billion.
