We are dually focused on barrel-aged mixed-fermented beers and fresh hoppy ales. Founded on our shared passions for brewing science, delicious flavors, and the craft of beer production, we brew beers that are balanced, drinkable, and highly aromatic without tongue-scraping bitterness or piercing sourness. Beer should be a pleasure to savor, not a challenge to conquer!

Craft Beer & Brewing
For brewers who read and sponge all the info they can find, it may be hard to believe: the authors of two of the most influential brewing books of the past decade run a brewery together. In suburban Baltimore, Scott Janish and Michael Tonsmeire are experimenting.
Simcoe Simpatico is a perfect take on what the New England IPA style is. If you’ve not had this beer, or if you’ve never heard of this beer, it should be on your beer bucket list.

Frequently Asked Questions
Sunday Happy Hour & Football Discounts
Sundays during football season we always offer one “beer flavored” beer for $4.50 for a full pour from 1-5 PM. Our bartenders are lonely on Sunday evenings… so we wanted to offer some enticement for you to keep them company! We’re offering 25% off all drafts (half and full pours) from 5-7 PM every Sunday!
Current Operations & Outdoor Seating
Our tasting room is open Tuesdays-Sundays for pours and pick-ups. Our pet-friendly patio is open whenever the tasting room is!

We also offer beer shipping within Maryland.
Do you take reservations for large groups?
We’re happy to reserve tables for larger parties. For groups larger than 20, we’d appreciate a week’s notice (email firstname.lastname@example.org) if possible to add another bartender to the staff.
Can I rent the tasting room for a private event?
We have a range of options for your event including pushing a few tables together, our Barrel Room for private events of 20-25 people, and taking over the entire tasting room! We have a minimum hourly tab we’ll set depending on the day, time, and number of people. Please contact email@example.com or call us for more details. Please include the number of people, desired date/time, and any other details!
Are pets allowed?
Pets are allowed on our patio in front of the brewery (open Tuesday through Sunday each week). We have bowls of water for your furry friend, and sell brewery-themed chew toys, banadanas, and collars! Our lease currently doesn’t allow pets in the actual taproom unfortunately.

For now our food license only allows us to serve snacks (chips, dips, nuts etc.) and non-alcoholic drinks. We schedule food trucks for most days.

We’re planning to begin serving food in the tasting room in 2024!
Can I get a tour?
Informational tours of the brewery are available on request. Ask one of the bartenders when you arrive since it may take some time for someone to be available to show you around and answer questions!
