What's on Tap?
Controlled Burn (5.4%). Our pilot batch Smoked Porter brewed with Chesapeake Malting 6-row smoked with pecan wood.
Plum Crazy (5.4%). Fresh juiced plums from Baugher’s Orchard co-fermented with our pale ale base.
Big Wig (5%). A Chocolate Nut Brown brewed with cocoa nibs soaked in Barfly’s special Buffalo Trace bourbon.
Psycho Haze (6.7%). This NEIPA has juicy, tropical fruit notes from Galaxy, Azacca and Equinox hops, with a touch of local honey.
Swaen Song (6%). This German pilsner is a very special collaboration to remember Baltimore Brewing Company/DeGroen’s and the original team. Using 100% Swaen malt (owned by Theo DeGroen, we used traditional Saaz hops with the newer Cashmere hops to honor history as well as the future. The earthy/spicy Saaz blends well with the lemon/lime flavors from Cashmere hops – refreshingly dry finish.
Jean Quad (10.6%). A Belgian style Quad brewed with dates macerated in Barfly’s special Russell’s Reserve bourbon. Definite dark dried fruit (raisin, date) flavors that will warm your belly!
Saison de Fleur: CHAMOMILE
Saison de Fleur: CHAMOMILE (5.5%) Next in the Fleur/Flower series – Belgian farmhouse Saison style brewed with chamomile. Very drinkable and approachable for craft beer aficionados and people who enjoy an easy drinking beer.
NITRO: Keeper (4.7% ABV). Dark chocolate yumminess, this Milk Stout is brewed with Chesapeake Bay blue crab shells from JM Clayton’s in Cambridge, a 5thgeneration crab processor. The crab shells give the beer a roundness and minerality.
ON CASK: First Whisper(5.3% ABV) A traditional British ESB cask conditioned by our very own Cask Whisperer, Steve Marsh.
Strongman(10.1% ABV). Double digits here with this Belgian Golden Strong, notes of honey and pear. This one can creep up on you!
Locally Delicious(5%) – A Kettle Sour brewed with 100% local ingredients. We used 6-row barley from Chesapeake Malting, wheat from Dark Cloud Malthouse, Nugget hops from Bullfrog Farm, and yeast grown by local wrangler, Jasper Yeast. The sour was finished with local peaches and nectarines from Baugher’s and blackberries and blueberries from Caskwhisper Farms.
Juniperus(7.4% ABV). An IPA with dank candy flavors and a hint of pine, brewed with Idaho 7 & Mosaic hops and juniper berries.
Stomping Ground (5.4% ABV). A Pale Ale heavily hopped with Experimental hop #07270, a trifecta of dankness, pine and delicate citrus. We’re trying to rename the hop Experimental #21230!
