Maryland ranks 47th in beer consumption in the U.S.
"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer," Abraham Lincoln said. Apparently, people in the tri-state area do not track with the 17th president of the United States, and select other beverages to meet national crises. Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia all rank in the bottom third of annual shipment and consumption of beer, according to a study from the Beer Institute, quoted by the Washington Business Journal. Since 2003, the Beer Institute has been tracking “Shipments of Malt Beverages and Per Capita Consumption by State” for persons 21 years and older across all 50 U.S. states and the District of …

Thirty-seven states and the District of Columbia currently allow adult consumers to have wine directly shipped to their homes – Maryland is not one of them.

While this process may help keep alcohol out of the hands of minors, it does not allow adult consumers in Maryland to enjoy the same freedom of choice they would have if they lived in the 75% of the United States that does allow home shipping of wine. On January 28, Senator Jamie Raskin (D - Montgomery) and Delegate Jolene …
