Brewer’s Alley, Frederick’s first brewpub, is proud to have made its home in one of the city’s earliest and most important structures.
The building was raised in 1769 to accommodate Frederick’s first Town Hall and Market House. It served its purpose for more than 100 years and was witness not only to the birth of the city of Frederick, but also the Civil War, including the ransoming of the city by Confederate General Jubal Early. As Frederick grew and prospered into the 20th century, the location functioned as government offices, then an opera house and theatre. Here, such diverse events as a memorial service for President McKinley in 1901, and the Frederick debut of D.W. Griffith’s film, “The Birth of a Nation,” were hosted.
Brewer’s Alley continues its efforts to preserve the architecture of this fine building; a vital link to Frederick’s past.
The Mayor’s Office, located on the second floor, was, in its heyday, the office of the Mayor of Frederick and holds 15-60 guests. The adjoining Booking Room was historically a holding cell for of our city’s shadier characters and holds 12-45 guests. Each room is decorated in period style with portraits of city fathers and early Frederick families adorning the walls. A full-service bar is available. Rooms can be booked independently, or the entire site can be reserved for larger parties.
