Fundraiser for Family of Slain Earth Bread + Brewery Employee

bernard-earth-bread-brewery-940This Thursday, Earth Bread + Brewery is hosting a fundraiser for the family of one of its own. Long time employee Bernard Ray was killed Saturday night and leaves behind three young boys, a daughter and grand child. Earth Bread + Brewery will be donating all proceeds on Thursday to his family.

As Marcos Espinoza posted today, Ray was a welcoming face at EB+B and will be sorely missed. Owners Tom Baker and Peggy Zwerver have always run their brewpub as more than a business and our condolences go out to them, the staff at EB+B and the Ray family.

Earth in a Box?

earth_bread_breweryWe’ve been talking about delivery at Luke’s Lobster and Paesano’s over the past couple of days. And now comes word that Mount Airy’s Earth Bread + Brewery is finally doing takeout. After five-years in business they are finally taking call-in orders for their fine pizzas flatbreads.

Days and times may be restricted due to how busy the dining room is but the dream of walking out with a hot flatbread in a box in one hand and a growler of EB+B beer in the other, is finally a possibility. Give them a call, you might just be in luck.

Earth Opening for Weekend Lunch


We don’t have a lot of bad things to say about Mount Airy’s Earth Bread+Brewery. We just can’t get enough of the vibe, the flatbreads (especially the seed) and owner Tom Baker’s beers. Our only complaint would be that Germantown Avenue spot is not open for weekend lunches.

But no longer. Starting on Saturday, March 16th, Earth Bread+Brewery will begin opening on weekends at noon. It all kicks off this Saturday with a special homebrewing event with the Malt House.
