Offit Kurman Attorney Bob Kresslein Represents Flying Dog Brewery
Regulation changes could allow brewery taprooms
Three county businesses received conditional approval for licenses from the Frederick County liquor board this week. Approval for a tap room operation at Flying Dog brewery was tied to revisions to regulations to the county’s new DBR license. The license, which is available only to breweries for beer sales on-site, was created last year in response to a state law that took effect July 1, 2013. Previously, the county’s two manufacturing breweries, Flying Dog Brewery and Monocacy Brewing Co., were allowed to sell only samples or beer in containers to be taken off-site. Flying Dog plans to open a taproom to attract fans to its beer-making operation, said Jim Caruso, CEO of the brewery.
