nice place in lower Frederick (close to Flying Dog)... kind of in a weird industrial area - feels like this place should be in a more downtown setting. excellent food with 20 taps to choose from. when asked about their rotating bomber list, the service seemed to balk at my question of what was on it.... like who cares? they charge for samples which is kinda odd as well. definitely worth stopping in for a bite and a drink before / after touring Flying Dog.
Stopped in for a couple of beers and some light food. Nice place, small, food menu is quite upscale with good quality-- not the normal pub fare. Beer selection is very good with a diverse 20 taps. Service was a little slow but the server was helpful and pleasant. Definitely will go back.
Have been back several times and think it is a great place.
This place is pretty straight forward. Twenty beers on tap and a couple more in bottles. All the stuff on tap is pretty high quality. The place is cozy with lots of craft beer signage hung up and some table tops made out of bottle caps. Staff were pretty friendly. Prices weren’t unreasonable except for the 75 cent shots of beer. 75 cents for a 1.5 oz. sample? Come on!
Has a feel as a place where beer geeks like to gather which for a beer geek is pretty cool. They have 20 crafts on draft split between local and national. We got there too late to eat but the menu sounds interesting. I’d like to go back at some point and spend more time there.
A nice, smaller restaurant with a very good selection of craft beers on tap, many from the region, which changes frequently. The food and service were both good. The prices are leaning towards the higher end.
Friendly place with a rock solid selection, a good mix of local and regional stuff, plus Belgian and other European top notch beers, and a handful from the west coast. A handful of bombers rounds out the list. Worth a stop.
Good place to grab some food with good quality beer. They have 20 beers on taps that are constently changing. They keep a good range of beer styles on rotation. Food was good with a decent selection. Sandwiches and appetizers are reasonably priced but the entrees are a bit high. Protions are small but still at an exceptable size, great dinner for before you go hit the other bars downtown.

Is ambiance a beer diner. Small with a nice long bar. a few booths. the selection was only 20 taps but over half were beers I had never hhad , some I had never heard of. food was good and the bartender Jeff knowledeable and service was great. Just off the highway and will be added as my one allowable stop and beer between DC and pittsburgh.
2/13 Sorry to say must take the rating down. The selection seemed a little more typical, and that had been a strength, but the big kicker was the servise or rather lack thereof. essentially ignored bywith an empty glass and certainly no friendly conversation. It wasn’t busy but I got the distinct feeling customers should go away and not bother the barmaid..
Great place to grab a fresh beer. Beer change frequently which is good for freshness, but bad if you have a beer you really enjoy....it will be gone soon. On the plus side something else will be available. Service is great, food is good, prices are a bit high, but mostly because they keep the beer flowing via sixtels to rotate quickly. Overall, a great place to get a great beer any day of the week. Staff is great too. Only drawback is the small location, need a bigger bar and more seating.
They have a great beer selection. Friendly staff who will answer your questions about the beers on tab. The food is delicious, I love the idea of roasted and baked food instead of fried food. My suggestion on your first visit is to try the Mac and Cheese.
