You’ll get to tour some amazing breweries and maybe get a growler or two! Here’s a little bit of info about them:
Olde Mother Brewing Company – This brewing company on E. Patrick Street, opened the Summer of 2015 and has a wide variety of brews from IPAs to Sours on draft. Started by business partners Nick and Keith, they offer “typical craft beers that will suit your palette” but also offers a heads-up for “a few twists and unique flavor profiles.”
Flying Dog Brewery – The most regionally recognized brands of beer from Frederick, MD is the eccentric Flying Dog brand! Started in 1990 by George Stranahan and Richard McIntyre, there is a long and complicated story behind the name. Now they have a wide variety of steadfast brews, all with…let’s just say…creative names. Their seasonal brews are also popular, with the most iconic being their Dead Rise Old Bay Ale for summer.
Smoketown Brewing Station – Homed in Brunswick’s former fire station, this brewery offers a full spectrum of beers, named after Frederick County’s historical sites and stories! You can bring your own food from the restaurants around town and take a seat on their patio in warmer months or the tasting room. From there, all you need to do is order a flight to sample their brews and relax.
Red Shedman Farm Brewery – (Saturday Only!) This brewery out in Mount Airy, Maryland has a great mix of beers, from their Honey Bourbon Rye Ale to their “Lunatic Fringe,” an IPA infused with habanero peppers. The brewmaster, Victor Aellen, trained in Beer City USA (Grand Rapids, Mi.) with two of the best brewers around. After leaving his mark in Michigan, he partnered with Linganore Winecellars, a match splendidly made.
