BALTIMORE - It's a win for a local company and a win for Chesapeake Bay.

A Baltimore-based brewing company has created "The Bay IPA" - a beer that salutes the bay with label art, and a portion of sales proceeds will go to the Chesapeake Bay Trust for restoration projects. Full Tilt Brewing co-owner Nick Fertig said their love of the bay was a natural fit for the new brew.

"It pairs well with outdoors stuff," he said. "Especially when the warm weather is here, it's going to be a nice on-the-water, or in-the-woods, wherever-you-are-outside kind of beer."

The beer label artwork incorporates elements of the Treasure the Chesapeake license plates, which also raise money for restoration of local waters and the bay.

Fertig said The Bay IPA is available in a handful of stores now, and will be more widely available throughout the region in the coming months - just in time for enjoying the water.

"Crabs, oysters, stripers - we love being out on the bay, having a good time," he said. "We like eating the food that comes out of it. And it goes back to just being prideful of our area."

Beer fans can taste-test The Bay IPA at a release party on March 21 aboard the Spirit of Baltimore. Tickets are available at spiritcruises.com.

The Chesapeake Bay Trust awards millions in grants every year for watershed improvement projects and education.
