Best brewery: Burley Oak Brewing Co.

When Bryan Brushmiller lost his job in 2009, he got more serious about his homebrewing. The hobby — now known as Burley Oak Brewing Co. — is churning out some of the state’s best beer in the small town of Berlin. You can find Burley Oak at a beer haven like Max’s Taphouse, but we recommend traveling to the modest brewery, where you can try trusted favorites, along with experimental and limited releases. Tip: Try the bold sours.

10016 Old Ocean City Blvd., Berlin, 443-513-4647,
