About

We are two old friends, each with decades of experience in the brewing and hospitality industries, who simply wanted to brew beer we’d love to drink. 

Key Brewing Co.—its name a nod to the national icon from our native Baltimore area, Francis Scott Key—is the only brewery in Dundalk, Maryland. Key joins a burgeoning tradition of skilled brewers in the region and, of course, the incredible movement of skilled craft brewing across America. 

We are purists of sorts, but not elitists. Key beers are true-to-style: True blue. Traditional. There should be nothing complicated or intimidating about craft beer. To us, craft emphasizes a thoughtful yet straightforward approach and commitment to the highest quality. Key beers are deliciously drinkable. They are supernacular.  

Since our launch in Summer 2015, we’ve had the privilege of sharing beer we love—beer we make—with our neighbors and enthusiasts all around the region. (Eventually, the nation!) Simply put, we’re brewing, drinking, and living the dream.
