Independent Brewing Company is a small batch, full production craft brewery located on the outskirts of old town Bel Air, Maryland.

Since it’s opening in 2015, Independent has quickly become a hub-spot for business and community. One of the fan-favorites brews at Independent is the Blue Eyed Blonde. Phil Rhudy, Chief Fermentation Officer at Independent, says the beer was created for a friend who lost her life to cancer. The Blue Eyed Blonde was the third beer brewed when the brewery opened. To date, the Blue Eyed Blonde outsells any other beer at the brewery. See Phil’s full interview with ABC 2 News here.

Independent Brewing features a large taproom with 22 taps and a great selection of gluten free beer. Located near the Ma & Pa Trail, Independent is a great location for anyone looking to add to their experience when visiting the trail. Also, the brewery offers a large seasonal patio area and is family and dog friendly. Check back with Independent often to see what is on tap, as some of our small batches change daily.
