Notes: Welcome to Brewer’s Alley, Frederick’s first Brewpub. Brewer’s Alley is proud to continue the long history of beer making in a town known for its deep appreciation of fine fermented spirits.

The name itself is taken from a page of history. Brewer’s Alley was located on what is currently South Court Street. Beer Production ceased in 1901 when a large fire consumed the brewery of John Kuhn, who was the last in a long line of brewers to occupy space along the banks of Carroll Creek. For over 153 years, from the very beginning of Frederick County, Brewer’s Alley was a fixture in the social and economic landscape of Frederick. Ninety-five years after leaving Frederick, Brewer’s Alley is back!

Stopped in with the kids on a Monday night. Sat in the dining area with a view of the street. It was a quiet evening with a casual, chill, friendly atmosphere. Waitress was very attentive and the service was excellent. I ordered a 6 beer sampler of the 9 or 10 brews offered. The selection was excellent with two beers on cask. I really liked the Kolsch, the Alt and the Heff. The other beers I tried were all solid. We all had light meals since it was relatively late, but what we had was excellent. My power salad was very good and the side of Mac & cheese that my daughter had was one of the best she’s had. I would definitely recommend for a casual dining experience.

I stopped in today with my wife and son after hiking Sugarloaf Mountain nearby. We got the last open table on the modest patio and had a very pleasant late lunch. We shared the pickle chips which were skimpy but very tasty and I had a kolsch which was excellent in the afternoon sunshine. Nice atmosphere as well as notably fast and friendly service. My sausage gumbo was delicious and my wife couldn't shut up about her turkey burger. I would totally come back here any time.

Nice selection of beers, good value for those who like to try a lot with a 6-beer (5 oz pours) sampler for $8. The favorite of both my wife and myself was the 1634 rye beer but all of them were good.

There was about a 30-minute wait for a table on a Saturday night but once we got in the service was helpful and fast. The kitchen did make a mistake in sending out French onion soup instead of French fries (my wife had asked about the soup, but decided to get fries instead) but that was more than satisfactorily resolved - they sent a side of fries and didn't charge for the soup. :)
