Burley Oak Brewing Company
The inspiration for the name Burley Oak Brewing Company was inspired by the name of the town of Berlin which was from a tavern there Burleigh Inn, our traditional brewing methods and the history of their brewhouse. Their building was originally a Cooperage - making oak barrels to fill with local produce and seafood to ship off to Baltimore in the early 1900's. They are bringing barrels back to the building, aiding them in the aging of their hand-crafted ales.
