“Born from a love of nature, pets, family, and beer, BabyCat brewery will forever be dedicated to crafting excellent craft beverages and ensuring you, your family and your friends feel right at home every time you visit us.” MoCo residents Sam Mussomeli and Terry Redmond are bringing BabyCat Brewery to Kensington. The new brewery will be located at 10241 Kensington Pkwy.

Mussomeli has been brewing for over a decade. The pandemic gave him more time to work on his craft and move forward with his dream of opening a brewery. Montgomery County native Terry Redmond came on board last year. The duo noticed that the building, located approximately 35 feet away from the railroad track, has recently been sold and reached out to the new owners to see if they would be interested in bringing in the new brewery. After sharing their business plan with the new owners of the building, the wheels were in motion for the new community brewery- Kensington’s first.

The plan is for the brewery to be family focused, as Mussomeli and Redmond would like to maximize the outdoor space. They plan on offering a space for local artists to show their work and would also like to bring in local musicians to perform. Though the brewery won’t offer food of its own, they’ll be working with food trucks and offering QR codes to use at some of the surrounding restaurants.

The next step for BabyCat Brewery is a hearing with Montgomery County’s Alcohol and Beverage Services for a beer and wine license on Thursday, March 17th. Construction will begin next month and the brewery hopes to open by the end of the year.

We’ll continue to update you on the progress of MoCo’s newest brewery.

New Brewery Coming to Poolesville

Landmade Brewery is opening this November in Poolesville. The farm brewery, which is being built in a repurposed cattle stable, will be located on Jerusalem Road and will include a tasting room, an in-house run food truck, and a general store.

There will be several seating areas, including both full service and GA.

The brewery will focus on farmhouse style beers made with fruits grown on the property, lagers, as well as ciders. The owners described the brewery as “hyper-local” and they plan to only use local ingredients as long as they are available.

The general store will feature both homemade and local provisions that guests can use to pack their own picnics.

Items in the general store will include items such as, eggs, pickles, jams, bacon, and granola, as well as carryout beers, glassware and other merchandise.
