Saints Row Brewing’s Rockville Location Now Closed, New Olde Towne Gaithersburg Location Opening in May

Saints Row Brewing’s Rockville taproom served its last beer this past Saturday, April 16, as the brewery is moving to a new location in to Old Towne Gaithersburg, which is scheduled to open in May.

Saints Row will be taking over the former Brawling Bear production and taproom facilities at 15 Fulks Corner Ave. Brawling Bear ceased operations in 2020.

The brewery tells us that the new space will give them, “twice the brewing capacity that we’ve been operating with for the last four years, as well as give us a more robust customer experience with enhanced and improved taproom functionality.”

The breweries expansion will include wholesale distribution throughout Montgomery County.

According to brewery, the move is being considered a homecoming of sorts as one of their owners grew up in East Deer Park neighborhood, is a GHS alumnus, and is currently raising his family in Washington Grove.

The brewery also recently purchased additional space in the new building to launch Hallowed Grounds Coffee Co, a boutique coffee roaster and cafe.

They tell us, “our production team will be focused on small batch artisanally roasted coffee. We will be providing a range of regions and roast profiles, as well as experimenting with new and unique processes such as barrel aging green and roasted coffee. Working together with the brewery, we have high hopes for packaging cold brew to stock our shelves. Our small scale flexibility will also allow us to offer custom blends and roasts for customers.”

They are currently roasting small batches and hope to have the coffee shop open this summer.
