Hi there! We have been hard at work building this brewery keeping in mind sustainable practices and using local materials and craftsmen. We love our town of Berlin, Maryland and hope you join us in our taproom for a couple of pints and growlers. Our goal is to produce distinctive beers whose quality is unsurpassed using new and traditional brewing methods.
5% ABV 32 IBU
A light, crisp ale brewed with Noble hops and malts from the Cologne region of Germany. Slightly grainy with a touch of floral hops.
Celebrate four years of handcrafted goodness at our all-day Anniversary Party! There will be live music, food, barrel aged beers and Ruder Boy bottle release!
Sit back, relax and chill out with our friendly staff during the day, while we sling pints and watch surf videos all night.
Open at 11am, we are guaranteed to have fresh beers on tap and a great staff to guide you through your Burley Oak experience, whether it's your first time visiting, or you're one of our regulars!
Bring your own vinyl records to play in the tavern, or choose from our house collection.
Bring your own game, or play ours! We have shuffle board, a large ping pong table, cards, ring toss and board games!
In 2011 Brooks Clayville contacted me about his love for farming and trying to grow new crops including Maryland indigenous plants and brewing grains. As a Soil Scientist Brooks knows all too well what these small grains need to grow here on the Eastern Shore. After a good bit of research Brooks decided on a grain and we started planting. The first trial failed and we tried again. and again. In late 2013 we finally found what all the necessary components were to grow and harvest a barley that was able to be malted. This research, trial and error, and overall learning curve adaptation lead to our Burley Oak grain to glass series called, Home Grown Ales. The first beer in this series is Loakal, Pale Ale.
