Antietam Brewery will hold a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration at its new location on Friday, June 9 at 3 p.m. Following the ribbon cutting the brewery will be open to the public. The brewery is re-locating to a 7,500-square-foot facility located at 140 Western Maryland Parkway in Hagerstown, which will house brewing operations and a tasting room as well as a patio area.
Antietam Brewery opened its doors as Washington County’s first craft brewery in 2012, and has been operating out of Benny’s Pub since that time. The brewery’s name isn’t the only connection to the county’s rich history and the Battle of Antietam. You’ll find beer names such as the Otto’s Orchard Series, Little Mac IPA, Freedom Porter’s, Witness Tree Nut Brown Ale and more.
Pints sold at the ribbon cutting will benefit local heritage tourism. One dollar of every pint sold is being donated to the Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area, a Maryland heritage area that encompasses Washington County as well as parts of Frederick and Carroll counties. There will also be a raffle of a growler of Cannonball Beer.
