Hi there! We have been hard at work building this brewery keeping in mind sustainable practices and using local materials and craftsmen. We love our town of Berlin, Maryland and hope you join us in our taproom for a couple of pints and growlers. Our goal is to produce distinctive beers whose quality is unsurpassed using new and traditional brewing methods.

Imagine this- An adult smoothie of blackberries, vanilla, and cinnamon, blended in an Imperial sour ale with the addition of lactose for some creamy goodness. It's fruity, tart, and unbelievably delicious.
In 2011 Brooks Clayville contacted me about his love for farming and trying to grow new crops including Maryland indigenous plants and brewing grains. As a Soil Scientist Brooks knows all too well what these small grains need to grow here on the Eastern Shore. After a good bit of research Brooks decided on a grain and we started planting. The first trial failed and we tried again. and again. In late 2013 we finally found what all the necessary components were to grow and harvest a barley that was able to be malted. This research, trial and error, and overall learning curve adaptation lead to our Burley Oak grain to glass series called, Home Grown Ales. The first beer in this series is Loakal, Pale Ale.
