True Respite Space Available in Rockville; Brewing Company Currently Exploring All Options

by MCS Staff

True Respite owners Brendan and Bailey O’Leary opened up shop at 7301 Calhoun Place Suite 600, off of East Gude Drive, in 2018 and the local brewery has been able to make a name for itself in the local beer community. Recently, the location on Calhoun Place has been made available and the O’Learys have let us know that they are keeping all options open as they plan their next move for True Respite.

Anyone interested in the current location would be taking over the lease and purchasing the equipment at the 7500 SF production brewery with 2500 SF taproom. The True Respite brand and intellectual property is not for sale. Initially, True Respite considered expanding, but currently it doesn’t appear to be the most likely option for the company. “The beer industry is hard right now” Bailey O’Leary told us “and the taproom model seems to be the most sustainable for us” noting that opening a smaller location in Bethesda remains a possibility.

True Respite remains out and about, selling beers at this past weekend’s Strawberry Festival in Sandy Spring, hosting beer and chocolate pairings via zoom, releasing new beers, and being a part of many upcoming local events like Kentlands Under the Lights and Father’s Day at Windridge Vineyards. They’ll even be hosting a Murder Mystery Dinner later this month. As they continue to explore options and navigate their next move True Respite urges everyone to “support you local breweries and check in on your friends in the industry.”
