Montgomery County's only manufacturing and distributing brewery needs your help to expand to meet the local demand for our unique beer.

Hi there! We’re Baying Hound Aleworks and we’re the first and, to date, only manufacturing and distribution brewery in Montgomery County, Maryland. Started as a tiny brewery on a shoestring budget in 2010, the demand for our unique beers has quickly surpassed our brewing capacity. We need your help to make some upgrades pronto, so we can ramp up our efforts to share our beers with the people who love them.

The Baying Hound brewery is located in Rockville (1108 Taft Street) and is run by a full-time brewery and a committed team of volunteers- mostly locals and their beer-loving friends. We offer three stock brews- an IPA, our signature pale ale, and a stout- as well as a rotating selection of pilots and experimental brews. Our beers are unique in many ways:

  • We brew only real ales- unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally carbonated. We are the only brewery in the area, if not the country,that specializes exclusively in this type of brewing. In fact, we recently joined CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ales), a UK-based organization of certified real ale brewers.
  • Many of our beers are inspired by our favorite food pairings. We use all-natural ingredients: Including grains, herbs, honey, and fruit. We use real cocoa, marshmallows and graham crackers in our s'mores stout. Why? Because our brewers are creative people who love to cook and eat and our customers are adventurous folks who like to try new things.
  • The brewery was named for founder Paul Rinehart's faithful companion Marmalade, a bloodhound who kept him company while he brewed. In homage to that hound, we donate a portion of our sales to the Montgomery County Humane Society, and we welcome pups of all shapes and sizes at the brewery.

With your help, we'll be able to expand in three critical ways:

A BIG PRODUCTION! We currently produce 120 barrels annually on a 1-barrel system, which puts out 14-16 cases per batch. With your support, we’d get a 2-barrel system which means we'd be able to keep up a steady production of our three stock brews even as we continue to produce new pilots and seasonals for our customers to enjoy.

WHAT'S ON TAP? We currently serve our pilots from a 3-tap kegerator that our founder built himself (we're a real DIY outfit). With your help, we’d build a 6-tap system and put our three stock brews on tap in addition to three rotating pilots. Then we could relegate the current setup to much-needed hop storage.

MERRRRCH. After people try our beer, they often want to spread the word about Baying Hound. We need to invest in more merchandise (our newly-designed t-shirts, pint glasses, and openers)  to meet demand. To thank you for your generous support, we’d like to give you some of these great items as a reward for your general awesomeness.

If you love our beer, craft beer in general, or you have a soft spot for local business, please help us out. We’d love to keep supplying our ales to local stores and adventurous sippers while we work on our plan of world domination. 

Tell your friends, tell your family, and remember- if we reach our goal, you get yummies! No funding, no yummies, and it’s the doghouse for us.

We would like to move in to a bigger facility.

In order to accomplish this, we have to increase our production. An increase in production will mean an increase in profit. An increase in profit means a bigger facility and more of our delicious brew for you!
