Hard always to review breweries. Usually they are very good in my experience.
Tour here was very good and interesting(even if you have been through many brewery tours). Free tastes at the end. Good selection of there beers to try( pretty much all of them they have made recently). This is always a good thing. Staff is friendly and engaged.

Enjoyed our time here recently. We got there early and stayed almost all day. The crowds came and went, but it was a nice tasting room experience with a clean look, enough seating, and decent noise levels. Service was friendly and prompt for most of the day. We enjoyed the tour the last time we were here, so I will give a little credit for that as well.

The beers are definitely well made, and almost all are solid. There isn't too much crazy experimentation, but tasty beers made from the core beer ingredients and a few with some additions. The beers today were almost all pale in nature (at least the non-core), which was fine. Could've had a couple more styles represented even given it was a summer tap list.

Tons of beer on draft - all of the year rounds, seasonals, current Brewhouse Rarity + Single Hop, plus 3-5 beers you are typically only going to see at the brewery itself. Always slammed, so you're not going to get a personal vibe with the employees behind the bar if that's your thing. Tour lasts about 45 mins.

This place has a lovely vibe, the tasting room is full of wood and stone and Ralph Steadman illustrations on the walls.

The tour is great, with little samples along the way. Enjoyed trying the beer mid-process before it was completed.

The dudes behind the bar were also very nice and conversational. You can tell they are proud of what they have to offer.

It's worth checking this place out if you're ever around Frederick.

A great mouthfeel a great lace on on tulip pint glass (taller rather than wide) but here is the issues! The minute I sip, I smell hops. The minute I sip, I taste hops! If this was a toasted apa! ( which doesn't exist) it would be great! But, a porter, it falls short. I don't taste the toast, coffee chocolate, malt,at all! I like the way you it taste, it just doesn't match its name.

Gives sweet brewery tours plus you take home a full-size tasting glass. Tasting room is setup well. Food available from the FD food truck out in parking lot. Love it!
