Came in for a late lunch on a Tuesday afternoon maybe 3pm ish. Tom our waiter/bartender had some good recommendations, including the BBQ brisket sandwich with spicy slaw. Slaw was quite tasty. Had the wedding alt and kolsch biers. Preference for the alt over the kolsch. Quiet bar area with lots of windows for watching. Parking all on the street or in the public parking areas--good luck finding any street spaces on the weekends! Asked Tom about the MD growler laws, he says the growlers they fill have to have a flip top lid and silver handle--if itís got that kind even with a different logo theyíll take it. If you donít have one of those types, you can get one there for a $15 deposit and fill it for an extra fee (I think it was $10). On the plus side, if you bring it back you get back your $15, so you donít have to keep collecting more growlers.

Stopped by here for a late lunch - was still super busy even after 2pm. Bar area up front looks nice and rustic. Waitress was quite nice, service was quick and food was pretty tasty.
Iíve tried to track down the growler laws of MD, but I couldnít find anything specific regarding them. We were a bit taken aback that they would not fill our growlers - even more-so they would "exchange" our growlers with brand new growlers of their own. Couldnít fill our twist-tops and we werenít about to give up our specialty flip-top growlers and didnít really feel like purchasing brand new bottles for a few pours. Quite disappointing in that respect and coming from an area where every local brewery and virtually every local brewpub fills outside growlers... feels like a huge step backward. I wonít knock them for this, especially since theyíve accepted the loss in growler sales.

Fun atmosphere but very small and gets crowded a bit quick. Good choice brewed there, but the food sucks outside of the pizza. Get there early to get a seat at the bar.

Been here many times living in Frederick, heck, had my wedding rehearsal dinner here upstairs! Located in downtown Frederick in a older building adds a nice atmosphere. It can be dark and noisy at times but thatís because of busyness. Beer is always great, bring a growler! Food is good too, wood oven pizza recommended.

Iíve stopped by here many times over the years but for some reason never got around to rating it. The beer selection is limited to the six or so beers they have on tap with four flagships always on tap. In my opinion the beers range from decent to poor, with nothing thatís really outstanding. The food is good, but overpriced for what you get. On the plus side, the beer is reasonably priced at rough $3.50 a pint and they let you do tasters. Rather surprising considering this isnít D.C. Service can range from superb to almost non-existant. In other words, there is a lack of consistency all the way around. All in all I would say this is more of a tickerís place than a place I would come back to consistently.

Located in what seemed to be in the heart of old historic Frederick on the main street. Beautiful area. It was lobster night and it was pretty crowded. Service was good. Large place. The beers exceeded my expectations. This is absolutely worth checking out if you are in Frederick.

Small friendly place with a large selection of pretty decent beers. Atmospheric interior with a view into the brewery where the brewer was busy pitching yeast. Wood fired pizza oven. Good stop while touring the area.

A nice stop in downtown Frederick. It was fairly busy on a Sunday afternoon, with everyone watching the football game, but we did get seats at the bar. The tap list contained 6-8 beers and had some interesting low gravity styles (always fun when youíre on the road). The beers were above average and pretty good. I didnít order any food, but what I saw around me smelled good. This was a fun stop, a little more fun than I was initially expecting, and the beer is good. Would come back again.

Had an appetizer and beer. Fries were excellent and the flight was pretty good. Nice patio outside. Little historic town of Frederick and near some local shops. Service was average and food selection looked good.
