Visited for the Fall Riot beer festival. Beautiful day for it, all outside, but could have used a bit of shade. A dozen or so kegs, two or three casks with extra stuff added, so those are great for the tickers, of course. Beers were all worth trying, some very tasty, others just OK. Food trucks, music, booths with cider, soap, hummus and sauerkraut, fortunately not all on one plate. Oh, and tours for furloughed federals. Good times. The only change Iíd make is to offer smaller pours of the beer - 16 ounces of an 8.5% beer was hard to handle.

Went on a tour here- very impressive setup. Massive in size with a lot of contract brewing going on. There is a brewery tap room that you can hang out at at the end of the tour, but when I was there they did not have the proper license to sell beer on premise or serve pints of beer. So everyone could only get small tasters of their beer in small, plastic cups. Beers on tap were their standard lineup. Mediocre beers overall. The tour was fun, but the brewery is in the middle of nowhere and you cannot just show up to hang out and drink. So not really usable as a "ratebeer place." Really only in the database for the tours. You can buy six packs of their beers on premise, but they are about the same price as any retail outlet so no point.

Aside from special events, place is just open for brewery tours and those can be tough to get into (currently a 90 day waiting list). If you can get signed up for a tour, itís totally worth it. $5 gets you a full sized glass and 5 tastings at the conclusion of the tour. Selection includes their main lineup, but also includes a few brewhouse exclusives. Your basic tour, but the guides keep it very entertaining and the connection to Hunter S. Thompson is awesome.

Tour at flying dog brewery in Frederick. Tap room is great ... minimalist, good tables, great access to the bar, plenty of space. Very good selection, value is great at $5, tour was well done, staff are informative, and not condescending like some people can be. Take the tour.

Great brewery, nice big space with lots of taps and an outdoor patio. Tour was a bit long, but the history of the company was interesting. Need to book this one in advance, but you could probably just show up and go on the tour, its pretty laid back.

great tour with tastings of wort all the way to the finished product. they can only serve 4 oz tasters so you get 6 tokens + a couple extra on tour. limited / rare offerings on tap. store with beer to go and the usual schwag.

Visited on 02/28/2009. Stopped by here and had a pint of beer before starting the tour. The brewery here is huge! Three story fermenters line the place. Apparently they do contract brewing for quite a few other locations as I saw 200 Barrels of Rye^2 fermenting away. Friendly staff allowed us to sample quite a bit of the available brews. Certainly worth stopping by and seeing the magnitude of this brewery.

A really awesome place. $5 to drink, but you get 6 6 oz samples with that and you get to keep the pint glass, get their early because the place gets packed.

Came to FD brewery as a guest to help build a cask for the stateline crew.... We went to Maxs in Baltimore for lunch and they picked us up in their RV to take us to the brewery...Pretty cool of them. Plus the RV has two taps in it! Boom! Road soda! Thatís good shit... So we get the brewery, typical industrial park setting... Walk right in to the tasting room, they give us some samples... take the tour, typical stuff, here is where we brew, here is where we ferment, here is where we bottle....etc... So back to the tasting room for more tastings. Cool.... Everyone is chill. We build our two cask.... more beer sampled some of which are brew pub only. They drive us back to Baltimore... Service was top notch the entire trip. Fast forward a month. They bring our cask beers to StateLine and have a tap take over... 22 beers or so. All are great. A lot of their employees are there including their CEO who seems down to earth... So all and all, these guys really went out of their way to take care of us and I appreciate it. I have always enjoyed their beers now I rave about the service as well. GOOD BEER, NO SHIT!!!
