Visited at opening on a Friday. Indoor seating is limited but it didn't feel cramped. Lots of JREAM and IPAs on tap, we added the stout onto out flight as well. Plenty of to go options, and there's some outdoor seating because it looked like there's a stage for performances out there. No food on site.

Small parking lot, decent size taproom with no outside seating. Their sours were phenomenal and their stouts were decent. Their IPAs were not good at all. Friendly and quick service from bar staff. They had 18 beers on tap. They had a pretty good selection. They had a coffee cream ale, many fruited sours, 2 imperial stouts, lager, Pilsner w/lime, Pilsner, wheat ale, hard tea, red ale, porter,ipas, and a session ipa. If in the area I would revisit b it I wouldn’t go out of my way for this brewery.

Fun spot to hang out, cool vibe, good selection and different styles, great food menu, great back yard for the good weather, and right outside coolest American small town of Berlin MD. And the dude behind the bar rocks.

This is arguably the best brewery on the Eastern Shore. They always have many quality beers on tap, and you will leave satisfied. Due to the small size, service can be slow, but you won't be dissatisfied. Overall, make sure you stop here on your travels to the Eastern Shore.

Visited on a Friday afternoon, sat at the bar and received great service. Got to try flights of a range of styles from IPA to stout. Quality ranged from great to stellar, didn't have a bad beer. I enjoyed watching the brewhouse through a window behind the bar. I'll gladly return any time I'm in the area.

Great place to have a few beers. Not too loud, good music, friendly people behind the bar. Very good selection of brews, and had a couple of top-notch beers. While this is not my thing, dogs were allowed inside. I've heard some good things about Burley, and I'm very happy that we visited. Will DEFINITELY go back the next time we are in the area!

Great selection of incredible beer. Awesome space. Solid service. But the country music from the live band of cool dads was so loud that I couldn't even hear the person sitting right next to me without shouting into each other's ears. I felt like I was at a concert. Brewery music is supposed to be background noise. It's not supposed to prohibit communication amongst patrons.

Great little taproom just off of the highway (113 & 50) about 10 miles from Ocean City. Plenty of parking unless it's a weekend night. Cool, casual feel inside with lots of wood, and good music playing - and they do live music on Friday and Saturday nights! Generally low-key during the day but with small groups passing through; probably more tourists than locals, but friendly peeps nonetheless because they're beer people. 12 or so taps that display a bit of diversity, although there is a definite bent to the beers that they do - my wife can be picky but she found some beers to drink, so that's good enough for me. There's no food but I'm sure you can bring it in. And they do crowlers/growlers to go but a lot of the beers aren't available because of their limited supply so you should go ready to try a few. Very good service as well.

Close to home for me. Very laid back vibe and relaxing place. Decent beer selection with many rotating beers. Definitely worth the visit if your in the area.

I visited this brewery on my way to the beach, I had two series of flights and all the beer was quality. I wish they distributed in my area as I normally don’t go this out of my way to go to the beach.

Great place outside of Ocean City, MD. Great staff that really know their beers and very friendly. They really like to push the boundary of taste flavors gere too.

The barrel pub tables are great to hang out and do a tasting of multiple beers. Crowlers in the 32oz cans is definitely the way to go
