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.

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

Always had a wide range of beer on draft, along with bottles, cans, and growlers/crowlers to go. Was pretty busy, but the bartender was willing to take time with each customer to help pick beers/flights. Beer is delicious overall, with a few "eh" beers here and there.

Nice little place with lots of wood all around and some interesting artwork on the walls. Wasn't filled with people and seemed kind of quiet at first, but eventually there was some live music, a nice little acoustic set by a couple guys. At the bar sparked up some conversation with some fellow customers who were much older than me. Lots of beers to choose from and even an incredibly sweet homemade root beer. No food but that's all right. I'd come back here again if I find myself in the Berlin area.

The place makes you want to stay for a while, a very long while! Great comfort and homey feel to the place like a tavern. Sully was my bartender and he knew his stuff. I think I got a smile out of him too. I considered ordering Thai for delivery just to stay a while longer.

Dropped in for my first visit during their 4th Anniversary party while vacationing at the shore. I dig their style and had been hoping to see the brewery in person for some time - just so happened it was a special event. Major kudos for a super friendly and welcoming staff. Solid selection. Very impressed with the newer stuff - I'd say it keeps getting better and better. Cool merch as well. Would have liked to take a tour, but perhaps another time.

If I had to cite something negative, I thought the clientele was hit-or-miss; but, overall I highly recommend.

Prost!
