BREW ON PREMISE
I have always liked beer, but in the last couple years or so I've been getting into more craft and micro brews, so learning to make my own beer just seemed like a great idea. The guys at the Flying Barrel really helped me out. They went through everything with me, all the equipment, the ingredients and the process. They even developed a recipe for me. All around just a great place with great people!
"If you brew beer or make wine, you owe it to yourself to check out the Flying Barrel. It's really close to Wegmans in Frederick - so the location is easy to find........"
"This was a wonderful experience! Very knowledgeable crew there! I was impressed with the cleanliness of the store/brewery. I found the cost to be very reasonable for that niche industry. We will definitely be returning!"
"The guys at the Flying Barrel are best, they always have answers to my questions and are so helpful. The always make you feel so welcomed. The new shop is great, by far the best homebrew shop around. "
