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.
