I grew up in Dundalk, went to Dundalk Community College / Essex CC & Towson State for undergrad, and finished up my degree at Shenandoah U. in Winchester, VA.... I worked in Frederick while going to college and lived in Columbia for a few years after graduating.

Since then, I lived in Colorado for a few years and now I'm stuck in Chicago of all places.

I bored you with my history because I MISS MARYLAND!! Colorado was really great in it's own way, but there is absolutely no redeeming value for Illinois. It sux, period. Whenever I travel back to maryland and come through Frederick on 70 on my way into Baltimore, I roll down the car windows and just enjoy the smell of the mountains.

Don't discount what you have! There's something special about the east coast that you'll sorely miss. Some of my most memorable mountain biking is there, too...

I was pleasantly surprised to find some good places there in Frederick as I began working there from time to time. Happy hour at champions for flying dog, brewers alley, barley and hops, flying dog, and dfh in gaithersburg all keep me happy when I'm in town!

There is a new alehouse opening up soon on the grounds of FSK Mall, right across from Olive Garden. Not sure if they will be brewing their own or "importing" everything, but it seems like it could be a cool place to grab a few....once it opens of course.

Old Ox Brewery opening up in Ashburn on same road Old Dominion used to be on

former Flying Dog brewer recently opened up a contract brewery in Sterling

Mellow Mushroom in Herndon with 30 taps. DelMarVa in Sterling has 50 taps + 1 on cask last time I was there. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Ashburn with 32 taps, more than a few local.

then there's Lost Rhino & Sweetwater Cafe.

plenty of good beer here in LoCoVA

Looks like that's gonna be a BJ's Restaurant & Brewery. They're a west coast chain, IIRC, I'd imagine they're gonna brew in Frederick. That'll be nice to have another brewpub in the area, too bad I don't live close to Frederick anymore.

We just visited BJ's and had some great beer and food. The only thing they brew onsite is their Rootbeer. Looks like some of the other brewpubs in the area better step up their game. This place has a very wide variety from low gravity on up to imperials! They also had a nice bottle menu.

For those who haven't heard, there's a nice BBQ and beer event coming up at the fairgrounds in May. It looks like there is also a homebrew competition for those that might be interested.
