At the Flying Barrel, customers are not limited to brewing or wine-making at home. The Flying Barrel offers on premise beer brewing and wine-making. New brewers and wine-makers will find this on-premise option particularly appealing because the Flying Barrel staff will be present to provide guidance, assistance, and even handle the clean up. Repeat customers find the on-premise option appealing for larger batches than they can do on their home systems. Several have used the Flying Barrel on-premise facilities to host groups, like birthday party groups, bachelor party groups, etc. This is an excellent way to learn brewing and wine-making while having some fun!

I have always liked beer, but in the last couple years or so I've been getting into more craft and micro brews, so learning to make my own beer just seemed like a great idea. The guys at the Flying Barrel really helped me out. They went through everything with, all the equipment, the ingredients and the process. They even developed a recipe for me. All around just a great place with great people!
"If you brew beer or make wine, you owe it to yourself to check out the Flying Barrel. It's really close to Wegmans in Frederick - so the location is easy to find........"
"This was a wonderful experience! Very knowledgeable crew there! I was impressed with the cleanliness of the store/brewery. I found the cost to be very reasonable for that niche industry. We will definitely be returning!"
