MASHOUT (Mid-Atlantic States Homebrewers CampOUT) began in 1988 with the combined efforts of Washington, DC’s BURP (Brewers United for Real Potables) and Frederick, MD’s FOAM (Frederick Original Ale Makers) homebrew clubs.

The first MASHOUT was held at the Hagan Farm (also known as the Mink Farm) in Thurmont, MD and attracted some 60 homebrewers. The event was so popular that it was repeated the next year at the same location. Subsequent MASHOUT’s have been held at Virginia Beach, VA, Fredericksburg, VA, and Flintstone (near Rocky Gap), MD. In 2014, MASHOUT moved to a new, much larger location near Oldtown, MD and Paw Paw, WV on a beautiful bluff overlooking the Potomac River. In 2017, the event moved once again – to a lovely old farm nestled in a valley just over the Pennsylvania line near Bedford (and close to the original site near Rocky Gap State Park in MD).

The very successful 31st Annual MASHOUT took place Aug 16-19, 2018. The date and location of MASHOUT 2019 will be announced in Spring 2019. Full details and registration options will be available beginning early summer of 2019 on theĀ MASHOUT Website.
