Our Story

Welcome To

Sapwood Cellars

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!

Baltimore Sun

The fall will bring another phase of growth, with — permits willing — an expansion of the taproom and the construction of a new in-house kitchen. “We figure food will bring in more of the people who might like drinking beer but might not know we exist,” he said. 


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. 


Porch Drinking

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.

Sapwood Cellars is a beer enthusiast’s destination you’re not likely to stumble upon by accident, locatedat the back of a nondescript business park along Maryland’s Route 108.
