Guests are required to wear a mask to get to the beer garden area and while standing in line for food, beer or restroom use, but are not required while sitting down at a table.
The brewery will be closed Monday-Wednesday and will have normal hours Thursday-Sunday.
- Thursday- 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Friday- 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Saturday- 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

If you’re not ready to hit the outdoor dining scene yet, the brewery is still doing contactless curbside pickup. All net proceeds of curbside sales have gone to the Maryland Food Bank and the brewery is set to make a $35,000 donation as a result.
Their culinary team has also been baking 500 loaves for the food bank every week. They said they have donated 3,000 loaves in seven weeks.
And while they were closed, they are also rolling out the regional release of Guinness Wide Mouth White Ale, the second-ever Baltimore-born canned beer available to the masses.
