418 Fourth Street

ECA A&Z Response >

There is a proposed brew pub (Forward Brewing) at 418 Fourth Street, the one-story gray building that used to house a marine electronics place.  Construction is expected to start in the Spring of 2019 and the architect is Gary Schwerzler.  For information, click here. The proposed plan is for the following:

  • Will have 28 – 30 seats brew pub and growlers/pints are available for takeaway.
  • Will have 8-9 parking spaces and will not offer valet parking. 
  • Parking lot will not be monitored for patrons leaving cars while heading to other local eateries.
  • Will pay for two spots at the Annapolis City Marina for their employees. 
  • Will not changed the footprint of the building (not demolished) but will renovated for a taproom in the front and outdoor tables.
  • Brewing to take place one or two days a week, using a 5 barrel system. 
  • Will have their food waste picked up to be composted making dumpsters unnecessary
  • Will use their driveway for delivery trucks 
  • Will upgrade their water system
  • No fryer, grill or exhaust fan necessary

​Currently, no plans to expand the capacity at a later time, no special exception needed
