If you're in Northern Virginia, there are 3 that I would highly recommend (in no particular order): 1. Port City, Alexandria, VA 2. Wild Run, Stafford, VA 3. Adventure Brewing, Stafford, VA
All three produce excellent beers. If you're visiting the area, I would suggest that you start with Wild Run, since they are actually on a campground and next door to a hotel.
Here is a list of all the breweries in Maryland.
Flying Dog has been around for a while and has a great reputation. We get it here in California.
Many restaurants in the area will have Flying Dog beer from Frederick, MD. Be sure to try some from Flying Dog, although it is somewhat widely distributed so that you may have some varieties where you are from. Try to find a variety that you can't get back home.
