Mully’s Brewery in Calvert County: Path to New Business of the Year

Mully’s Brewery in Calvert County: Path to New Business of the Year

On October 20, 2016, the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce recognized Mully’s Brewery as the 2016 “New Business of the Year”. That annual award recognizes a chamber member business which has been open less than 4 years. Mully’s Brewery opened to the public in October 2013. It is owned and operated by Jason and Cindy Mullikin. Located in Prince Frederick, MD.

When first taking steps towards creating this business, Cindy Mullikin utilized SBDC pre-venture training in January 2011 and the Mullikin’s have interacted with the SBDC since the initial business consulting session in May 2011.

As totally committed entrepreneurs with a vision to transform from home brewing, the Mullikin’s became very “industry educated”, commercial equipment educated, thoroughly researched zoning regulations and studied location options. They also networked to obtain industry insights, both before opening and since starting operations, from other craft beer business owners, including another Maryland SBDC.
