When Ellicott Mills Brewing Company opened in 1997, craft breweries were rare. Our brewing system is a central European German Lager system designed to create smooth, malty, drinkable beers. The beers we serve here at EMBC are not available anywhere else in the world. We don’t sell our beer to other restaurants, bars, or liquor stores. We only sell our brews to you, so that you can enjoy them right here, where they’re made. Other breweries spend their money on packaging, bottling, and marketing to compete for a share in the (now) huge craft beer market. We choose to put our money into your glass with the best ingredients, more costly aging processes, and good old fashioned hard labor from our employees who are dedicated to the craft.
As you explore our menu you will find everything from wild game, southern inspired dishes, and Maryland favorites, as well as traditional Brew Pub Fare. We hope you enjoy & understand the effort we take to ensure an exceptional product, as we carry on the time honored tradition of brewing with each and every batch.
