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!

Latest Coverage

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. Oct/Nov 2022

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.


Mid-Atlantic Brewing News

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.


Food & Wine

Maryland’s Sapwood Cellars immediately emerged as one of the best producers of sour beers in the country. Sours and naturally-fermented ciders can offer similar flavor profiles, , so it’s fitting that, in 2020, Sapwood finally made good the breadth of its “Cellars”…


Frequently Asked Questions

Sunday Happy Hour

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. We now have a greater selection of to-go options, all available for pre-purchase through our webstore and in-house. No contact pick-up is available, just call the tasting room when you park. We do not offer delivery. We are waiting on approval for permanent outdoor seating, but at the moment it is not available.

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 info@sapwoodcellars.com) 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 info@sapwoodcellars.com or call us for more details. Please include the number of people, desired date/time, and any other details!

Are pets allowed?

Our lease currently doesn’t allow pets in space (which is why you won’t see Mike’s dog Leroy around). Pets will be allowed at our outdoor seating when it finally gets approved! 

Do you have food?

Our food license only allows us to serve snacks (chips, dips, nuts etc.) and non-alcoholic drinks. We schedule food trucks for most days. The weekly schedule is on our homepage under “Events and Food Trucks.” Delivery menus are available for local restaurants. You are also welcome to bring your own food to eat in the tasting room.

Can I get a tour?

No guarantees, but one of us is happy to show you around if we have time. Ask one of the bartenders and they’ll check.

Do you sell beer to go?

We release new cans or bottles most weeks! If a beer isn’t available in cans or bottles we will fill your growler. If you don’t have a growlers we sell 32 oz and 64 oz growlers.
