Shorebilly logo

The only brewery on the Ocean City boardwalk has just opened.

It’s the humble Shorebilly Brewing Company.

The brewery is owned by Danny Robinson who told the Salisbury Daily Times that he has every intention of being up there will such well-known names as Thrasher and Phillips.

He began in a work space at 10th Street last year and with his grand opening yesterday started serving up beer year round at the Boardwalk location.

Shorebilly’s bar will have six beers on tap at a time along with bar stools made from recycled beer kegs and a bar built with recycled Boardwalk planks.

As for the name of the brewery Robison believes it may have been a derogatory term for Eastern Shore locals but that, he adds “It’s evolved.”
