UPDATE (OCTOBER 9): We will not be holding free tours for the furloughed on Thursday, October 10. Our taproom will be closed for a private event scheduled weeks before Congress decided to have a staring contest.  

However, we’ll resume free brewery tours for the furloughed on Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12 at the times listed above. Please take a look at the reminders below before you make the trek to a place that puts Willy Wonka’s digs to shame. 

***

We think you’re essential, so please read these essential notes on our free tours for the furloughed this afternoon:

1. All tour times are first come, first serve.
2. You must show your government ID to be eligible for a free tour.
3. We will do our damndest to accommodate everyone, but we will have a wait if our taproom reaches capacity.
4. Close-toed shoes are a requirement for our production area.
5. Spoilers for shows that are sitting on our DVRs will not be tolerated.

If oysters disappeared from the Chesapeake Bay, the entire ecosystem would collapse. 

The Oyster Recovery Partnership takes the best minds and creates life in the Bay, establishing a legacy for future generations and proving that creativity comes in all forms. 

This feature is the second of three spotlights on those who support local creativity leading up to our Local Riot October 5 at the brewery.

You’re not nonessential to us. 

Starting this Thursday (and until our federal government turns the OPEN neon back on), we’re offering free brewery tours for any furloughed government employee. 

Tours are Thursdays and Fridays at 4, 5, and 6 pm and Saturdays at noon, 1, 3, and 4 pm. Reservations are not required; we’ve reserved walk-up spots for those of you with a little extra time on your hands. Included is a guided tour of our brewery and five beer samples. 

All you need is your ID (tours are 21+) and proof of federal employment. These spots will be claimed on a first come, first serve basis.

2014 BHR

We climb mountains to talk beer.  

Our local Gambrill State Park is part of the Catoctin mountain range and offers a historic overlook that is home to our annual Brewhouse Rarities pitch session.



Each July, the entire brewery gathers and teams of our staff — from production to accounting to sales and marketing — pitch their ideas for the next year’s lineup. Pitches range from unearthing ancient beer styles to experimenting with new and innovative ingredients. 



Our brew team evaluates each pitch and then has the challenging task of choosing the next year’s releases. There were 40 beers pitched for 2014 and the chosen ones are: 

  • Mango Habanero IPA
  • Mint Chocolate Stout
  • Ginger Beer
  • Agave Lager
  • Lemongrass Rice Ale
  • Hoppy American Wheat
  • Honey Ale
  • Dopplebock

Details on each release coming soon. For now, fight the anxiety with our remaining 2013 Brewhouse Rarities, which include Roggen, Orchard Ale, Vineyard Blonde, and Cinnamon Porter.
