Rockwell Brewery Downtown

Rockwell Brewery Downtown Co-owners Paul Tinney and Matt Thrasher were home-brewing buddies long before Rockwell opened its doors in March 2017. Inspired by the beers they were making and the budding craft brewery scene in Frederick, Rockwell Brewery was born. The name is an ode to Tinney’s background as a designer of acoustic guitars and creating a theme of blending artisan work in craft beer and music. Head Brewer, Scott McKernon, started brewing at home back in the early 90s out of necessity due to a lack of good beer available. With a background in Chemistry, a love of cooking, and inspiration from the growing availability of new ingredients, Scott has filled our taps with a wide variety of beer styles and flavor profiles. There is something on the “beer wall” that will please everyone, including but not limited to stouts, porters, reds, IPAs, blondes and the occasional barrel-aged.
