Brewery Twitter List for D.C., Maryland, & Virginia.

Tweeting breweries

As of November, 2014, there are one-hundred-fifteen (!) breweries in the Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia conurbation posting updates to Twitter. The actual number of area breweries is higher, as several do not maintain Twitter accounts. In addition, there are twenty-six breweries in the region that are either under construction, in planning, or open but not yet brewing, which also 'tweet.'

Five years ago, in 2009, when this list was first compiled, there were far fewer breweries in the 'DMV' region, and only two were 'on' Twitter.

District of Columbia (11)

Maryland (42)

Virginia (62)

In planning, or under construction ...
or open, but not yet brewing.

  • Virginia (20)
  • Many use these hashtags when Tweeting about 'DMV'-area beer and breweries: #VAbeer, #MDbeer, #MDbrews, #DCbeer, #DCbrews.
  • A conurbation is a region comprising a number of cities, large towns, and other urban areas that, through population growth and physical expansion, have merged to form one continuous urban and industrially developed area.

    1. Great list. I'd love for you to tackle a list of all the brewers/managers/employees at these places. Those people tend to tweet out the good stuff.

      1. Whooh boy! That would be a task. Will consider it, though.
