Frederick County opened its first winery more than 40 years ago and now has more than half a dozen wineries offering a wide selection of award-winning wines, warm hospitality, and a glimpse into the ancient art of wine making.

Not only is Frederick County an ideal location for harvesting grapes, but it’s also conducive to growing grains and fruit. Local breweries offer beverages made from locally harvested ingredients straight from the farm. You’ll find a wide variety of options here, from Maryland’s largest craft brewery, Flying Dog Brewery, to Maryland’s first farm brewery, Milkhouse Brewery at Stillpoint Farm.
