Brewery Facts

  • Monument City Brewing began as a conversation between brothers Ken and Matt Praay during a hiking trip on the Applachian Trail
  • The brand has been with Bond Distributing since it was just a brewery in planning, and Bond has played an important role in growing and developing the brewery
  • Back in 2014, when Monument City beer was still being produced on a contract at Peabody Heights brewery, Bond sold less than 1,000 CE (even then, the majority was 51 Rye)
  • Things really took off for the brand in 2017, when they built a brewery of their own in Baltimore’s Highlandtown neighborhood; that year business more than doubled
  • Today Monument City is Bond’s third largest local craft beer partner, on pace for more than 40,000 CE in 2020
