About

Red Shedman Farm Brewery is proud to announce the grand opening of its Tap room and Brewhouse in Mt. Airy, MD. Founded by Vic, Anthony and Eric Aellen, the location features a cozy setting and has seating for 85. The Tap room has twelve taps, which will have an eclectic selection of Red Shedman craft beers, barrel aged, seasonal and brewer’s choice beers.

Last spring, Delegate Kelly Schulz sponsored House Bill 337 that allowed farm breweries the ability to become licensed as beer wholesalers and it went into effect July 1, 2014. This new law supplements the Alcoholic Beverages Farm Brewery Manufacturer’s License, passed in 2012.

“I’ve been brewing beer for a long time in Michigan, and once the Maryland Farm Brewery law was passed, it seemed a great time to come home and brew great Maryland beer,” commented Master Brewer Vic Aellen. “Relax and learn more about brewing while enjoying a flight or a pint.”

To celebrate, Red Shedman will be hosting its Grand Opening on November 15th. The Brewery will be open from 12noon-8pm on Saturday. There will be live music, drink specials and giveaways from noon to 5pm. There will be food available for purchase from Big Daddy’s Brick Oven Pizza and Hard Times Cafe of Frederick.

The Brewery is certain to become a community favorite. Year round, customers may enjoy 4oz flights, 16oz pints or purchase growlers and kegs to go. Currently on tap are Red Shedman’s Farmer’s Daughter Blonde, Honey Rye, Pump House IPA, Pumpkin Oktoberfest, Vanilla Porter, and Chocolate Nitro Stout. Two Bourbon barrel aged beers are set to be released just in time for the Holiday season. Additional limited production beers will be announced as they are available.
