About Mad Science Brewing Company

We are a veteran-run farm brewery specializing in high quality hand-crafted beer, founded on January 2nd, 2013. We produce ales and lagers using traditional styles as a guideline and tweakin' them to match our tastebuds.

We received our Brewer's Notice from the Alcohol, Tax, and Trade Bureau on June 2, 2014. We applied for our Accessory Use Determination from Frederick County for our farm brewery in accordance with the new zoning text amendment in February 2015. We submitted our amended state license application on February 9th and were approved on March 11, 2015. We have been open since April 11, 2015.

We are the first Southern Frederick County, MD farm brewery and are located at Thanksgiving Farms in Adamstown, MD. As a farm brewery use our own homegrown hops, fruits, vegetables, and other products from the farm in every batch of beer brewed.

Currently we are growing Columbus/Zeus, Nugget, Centennial, Cascade, and Magnum hops. We have ~230 plants in our field this year so we will have plenty of hops for years to come.

We also are offering membership into our Community-Supported Brewery program! We look forward to serving you and being part of your extended family.
