Located in an old red-bricked warehouse factory along Carroll Creek in Frederick, IDIOM BREWING CO. began operations, April ’19. Entrepreneurial brewer, Michael Clements, inspired by a Portland, Oregon journey, soon certified the logo “Expressions in Beer.”
A railroad-tied service station with twelve walled aluminum taps provides eight stools and two centralized TV’s for the cement-floored locale while the right side brewing space has a seperate bar area with pendant lighting and a space for bands to play.
A rear deck overlooking Carroll Creek features umbrella-clad tables where I’ll enjoy two delectable stouts this muggy afternoon in June ’20.
Milk-sugared coffee nuttiness and roasted dark chocolate consumed Pillow Talk Oatmeal Stout, a silken full body with maple-sugared oats base.
Breakfast-bound Tiramisu knockoff, Coffee & Cake White Stout, let cake-battered cocoa powdering, caramel chocolate sweetness and cream-cheesed marscapone sugaring ride above barley-flaked mocha malting. Fantastic!
Also on tap but untried were Level Up Hefeweizen, Trade Secret Pale Ale, Cosmic Debris IPA and Raise Your Eyebrow Rye IPA.
