Smoketown Brewing began in 2015 at our original location in Brunswick, Maryland when we turned the old Brunswick Volunteer Fire Department building into a brewery. Owner David Blackmon saw the opportunity in the quiet downtown with the beautiful, historic building he had just purchased. The whole Blackmon family quickly joined him in his venture, all working at the brewery by our opening day. In 2019, we decided to open a second location closer to where a large number of Smoketown fans were living- Frederick city. Now over 5 years into the business you can find our beer throughout the state of Maryland and Northern Virginia at your favorite bars, restaurants, and liquor stores!
Why Did We Pick the East Side?
When we opened our Frederick location on the Eastside of Frederick, there were already two breweries in the immediate area and the city was quickly becoming the craft beverage capital of Maryland. Now almost 3 years later, there are 5 breweries on the block and over a dozen producers in the city. We love that we’ve made our corner of the Eastside into a mini brewery tour where you can park your car and visit half a dozen craft beverage producers and food trucks without picking up your keys again. The ability and opportunity for us to carve out our little area of a new expanded downtown is very exciting, and you can’t beat the beauty of Carroll Creek any time of the year.
