We began building our farm in the spring of 2014 in the fields behind our brewhouse. It started with the creation of our first hop-yard, followed by additions of raspberry and mushroom patches shortly thereafter.
We continued to expand our farm during the summer of 2015, adding a second, larger hop-yard along with blueberry and blackberry patches.
Currently, we are in the process of planting 600 more hop plants. Our goal is to have the majority of our hops and herbs for our beers grown on our farm or locally.
Our brewery is located adjacent to our tasting room in our main building. It contains a ten barrel system with four bright tanks and eight conical fermenters.
Just as our farm crops fuel our brewery, the excess brewing ingredients will feed back onto our farm. We plan to enrich our farm fields via compost from the spent grain from our brews.
As members of the small community of Brookeville, a tiny town with a rich history of warmth and hospitality, we want to carry that welcoming spirit into our business. Thus, our desire is to become a community meeting place, where anyone can stop for a visit to tour the farm and brewery, relax in the tasting room, and host or attend a community event.
We are conveniently located along state route 97, which is one of the busiest roads in our community and stretches from Washington DC to the Mason-Dixon Line, so many local and regional commuters pass by our location every day. Our location has brought us substantial visibility that will make us easily accessible and recognizable as a community meeting place.
