Our Mission

Blending Farming and Brewing Into Exceptional Beers

Welcome to The Brookeville Beer Farm

Brookeville,MD is a small town rich in history and hospitality.  Our goal is to carry that spirit in our business as we welcome all friends of the Beer Farm to visit the brewery and hopyard, enjoy the finest beers and homemade pizzas, and socialize with neighbors in a community setting.

The Farm

We began building our farm in Spring 2014 in the fields behind our brewhouse.  It started with the creation of our first hop-yard, followed by patches of red raspberries and Shitake mushrooms.  The farm continued to grow in 2015 with the addition of a second, larger hop-yard, blueberry and blackberry bushes, and honey producing bee hives.

The Brewery

Our brewery is located adjacent to our tasting room in the main building. It houses a ten barrel system with four bright tanks and eight conical fermenters. Just as our farm crops fuel our  brewery, the excess brewing ingredients enhance our farmland, as we enrich our soil with compost from the spent grain output from the brewing process.

Our TapRoom space offers both indoor seating designed with rich wood beams and an octogonal hand crafted oak bar, as well as an outdoor open space environment adorned with picnic tables and room to relax.  We are a family-friendly and dog- friendly (leashes required) establishment.

Our Team

Kenny Borkmann - Head Brewer
After finishing his math degree at Towson University, Kenny spent the early part of his career as a math teacher in the Baltimore County Public School system. Although he enjoyed teaching, he decided that he did not want to make a career of it. Instead, he opted to pursue his interest in brewing beer and the growing craft beer industry and continued work at Maryland Homebrew, where he worked while attending TU. Kenny eventually crossed paths with Phil at Maryland Homebrew and joined BBF shortly thereafter.
Phil Muth - Co-Owner
Previously of Coastal Sunbelt Produce, a produce wholesale company that he founded in the early 1990s, Phil took particular interest in the craft beer industry after the state of Maryland created the farm brewery licensure in May of 2012. The new farm brewery industry suited his interests in craft beers and gardening as well as his previous experience in the local food industry.
Tim McDonnell - Co-Owner
Owner and president of McDonnell Landscape, Tim first met Phil in an impromptu meeting where they discussed using an old nursery building near Tim's landscaping business to create a new farm brewery. The two agreed to go into business, and the idea came to fruition. Tim's interest in craft beer, and his experience as an entrepreneur led him into the budding Maryland craft beer industry.
