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.

Went for the Barrel Aged Gonzo 2014 release. Arrived just after 12 PM on a Friday, pretty calm with a very small crowd possibly with people being at work. Didnít have a ticket for a tour this time but bought a wristband good for 5 tasting pours along with a complimentary glass. Pretty good selection of drafts with 18 drafts consisting of their year round, seasonal, limited, and brewhouse rarities beers. No food other than a food truck that came for the event. Pretty small gift shop with apparel, beer, etc. Value for the tasting was great even without being on the tour, bottled beer prices are average and 64 ounce growler fills seemed affordable at $10-15. No views of the brewery operations from the tasting room but I look forward to going back eventually for a tour.

Update as of 7/12/2015: Outdoor patio area has been revamped and looks nicer with nice wooden fencing and seating. They are now able to serve beer by the glass so no more need for the bracelet-style tickets with one pour at a time. Pours available in sample size individually or as a flight of 4, as well as individually in pints. $15 at most for growler fills, cheaper for less limited beers. Outside/non-Flying Dog growlers are allowed which seems to be a rare but welcome occurrence for Maryland.

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.

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. update: tours are walk on except for Saturday, and you have to take one to buy any beers to go

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 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.
