In 1703, England’s Queen Anne commissioned Benjamin Fordham to begin a brewery in America, in her namesake city of Annapolis. As the port city grew, so did the popularity and demand for Fordham’s beer, and he secured a position in the history of the region, becoming one of the city's first aldermen. However, when he passed away in 1716 the brewery was shut down, and that’s how it stayed for almost three centuries.
The Fordham name was brought back in 1995 (with the permission of Fordham’s great-great-great-grandchildren) with the establishment of a new brewery by William Muehlhauser and Jim Lutz. After five years of strong growth, they moved to a larger facility in Alexandria, VA, and three years later they had outgrown that building too. Fordham’s brewing and bottling operations moved to their current facility in Dover, DE in 2003.
