Brewer’s Alley’s location at 124 North Market Street is steeped in Frederick history. The first residents of Frederick held a lottery to raise money to build a town hall and market house on this location in 1765. This structure served its purpose for over 100 years and was witness to the birth of Frederick as a city. The Market House spanned the Civil War, including the ransoming of the city by Confederate General Jubal Early. In 1873, the bustling town of Frederick replaced the Market House with the “new” multifunctional offices, and provided space in the rear for the Frederick Farmer’s Market. Later, the building became an opera house and theatre. Brewer’s Alley has been fortunate in its efforts to preserve the elegance and glory of the old Opera House by being able to engage Salyer Studio Faux to faux decorate some of the original ceiling panels and columns in mimicked old Italian Sienna marble.
We are most happy to oversee the building’s latest transformation into the state-of-the-art brewery and restaurant. We opened the doors in July of 1996 and have been serving great beers and wonderful meals to the masses ever since. We hope you enjoy the history and ambiance of our location, as well as the brewery and dining experience.
