DuClaw operates their main brewery in Abingdon MD, and has four taphouse satellite locations at Arundel Mills (Hanover), Bel Air, Bowie (Town Center Mall), and BWI Airport (Baltimore). I am very fond of DuClaw's product line. Their tamest beers are Bare Ass Blonde, Sawtooth Belgium White, Misfit Red, and Bad Moon Porter, and I would consider these just average. But things improve rapidly with Euphoria Brown (yum!), Exile Belgian, Old Flame, Venom Pale Ale, and seasonal Naked Fish Chocolate Raspberry Stout. Things get very complex and delicious with BlackJack Russian Imperial Stout (7.5%), Misery Wheat Wine (10%), and Serum Double IPA (9%). As if those big beers aren't enough, their offering culminates with Devil's Milk Barleywine (10.5%) and the perfectly bold Pax Nemesis Imperial Alt (11%). The main brewery is in an industrial complex, does not have a taproom, and does not have public tours. To try their beers, visit the nearby Bel Air restaurant for a sampler flight.

This is the primary brewing location for DuClaw Brewing Company. The brewery is an up to date 50 barrel facility located less than 5 miles SSE of DuClaw’s first location in Bel Air. We contacted them in advance though the web site to set it up and were fortunate to have Brewmaster Jim Wagner educate and entertain us for more than an hour while touring the facility. In addition to the normal information about ingredients and the brewing process, Jim shared some his brewing experiences, personal preferences and beer philosophy. This is a true working brewery and there is no tasting room on-site so the tour ended after a brief visit to the cold storage room (normal storage, barrels of early batches and oak aging barrels). Before we left the cold room, Jim rummaged through some boxes in the back corner and produced a bottle of 2005 Black Jack Stout that had been bourbon barrel aged. So we stood around by the office and shared it with Jim and the other brewers. It was terrific!
