European Series Kickoff & Kolsch Release

April 12 - April 14

Our TASTING ROOM will be open Friday (4-9pm), Saturday (12-7pm) and Sunday (12-7pm) with 13 farm-brewed beers (+ our hard seltzer) on draught and multiple options in cans available to go! We have indoor seating, a covered tent, and plenty of outdoor space to spread out.

Beginning Friday (4/12), we will be celebrating the 2024 launch of Manor Hill’s European Series.  This series of brews, inspired by their traditional European origins, are all light, approachable, and mark the beginning of warm weather season in Maryland. Kolsch is the first in the series and will be released at this event, followed later by Dortmunder (April), Helles (May), Infine (July), Dunkel (Sept), and more.

KATHERINE’S KOLSCH (KOLSCH, 5%) – German roots run deep within the Marriner Family, so it made perfect sense for us to create this iconic Cologne style with our own farm brewed twist. This bright cold conditioned ale was created using blend of German malts that provide a very crisp and clean mouthfeel. The result is a very fruit forward nose that is complimented by an incredibly drinkable and refreshing flavor profile.




While visiting the farm, be sure to check out our agriculture in action.  Our award-winning beers may be our most well-known agricultural product, but our 54-acre working farm has so much more to offer.  In fact, the majority of our land is used for agriculture… so you can’t miss it no matter where you are on the farm! 

As you enter the farm, on the right side of the driveway, you will see 14 acres of non-GMO corn. Every single beer brewed at Manor Hill uses this corn in its recipe.  On the left side of the driveway as you enter you will see our 12-acre cow pasture where we host about 20-25 Black Angus Cattle on the farm from Spring to Fall (there is an additional cattle pasture behind the residence).  Directly behind our Taproom, we have a coop with one rooster (Elvis) and approximately 30 egg-laying hens.  Next to our chicken coop is our goat enclosure featuring Mary and Gilbert, a mother and son set of Pygmy Goats.  Last, but certainly not least, is our array of gardens on the farm that produce various vegetables, fruits, and herbs used in our beer, Trolley pizza, and at our restaurants.  Informational signs on the property as well as our staff can answer any questions you have during your visit.
