Draft beer, not people. ~Author Unknown
A few weeks ago I found a bottle of Baying Hound Aleworks beer on the shelf at a local market. Never heard of this place, and it’s based in Rockville, MD- the first [and to date only] brewery in Montgomery County.
The guy who runs it, Paul Rinehart, went to cooking school and was going to be a chef but some wise man told him he lacked the asshole gene and that he wouldn’t do well in the food service industry as a result. So he started brewing beer instead.
The beers are named after hounds Rinehart has known. There’s lagers, ales, and recipes like stout flavored with chocolate and marshmallow, and a wheat beer spiked with sweet red beet juice.
Stop by, say high, and grab a pint. But bring your own food, because they’re not doing munchies yet. Something tells me when Rinehart’s ready for that phase it will be epic.
