AleCraft Brewery in Bel Air to Close

On Thursday, February 29th, it will be the AleCraft Brewery’s last day in their Bel Air, MD location. They made their announcement just a bit ago that they will be closing their Bel Air location. Their new location in Railroad, Pennsylvania will continue to be open however.

No word yet on what the plans hold for anything with regards to movement, product, etc.

The Announcement

We are sad to announce our closing, scheduled for Thursday February 29. We’ve had a great 6 years meeting new friends, hosting home brew lessons and fundraisers, sampling beers from local brewers, getting and giving beer advice, partnering with local businesses like Birds Nest BBQ for great food and Oodles Cheesecakes for beer pairings, teaching brew lessons on hops, water and off flavors with the local homebrew club and a million other memories. But our time here in Harford County is at an end. We hope you don’t become strangers and come to visit us in Railroad PA. Please stop in to say goodbye (for now) over the next 10 days. Mug Clubbers can pick up their mugs anytime before we close. Thanks again.

AleCraft Brewery – Bel Air – Facebook Post

AleCraft Brewery

We got to visit them a while back and absolutely loved the cozy Bel Air spot. They also performed very well in the 2023 Battle of the Breweries, making it to the Final Four match-up and losing to Allusion Brewing Company. They won the Saaz Conference.

We haven’t gotten to the Railroad, PA location yet (on the docket for 2024), but we know they will certainly be missed in Bel Air. Its a shame to be seeing these wonderful breweries and locations closing. Hopefully 2024 turns around for most breweries, but the year is looking rough already.

More Information on AleCraft Brewery

The following is from Untappd: AleCraft Brewing Company is a micro brewery from Bel Air, Maryland. They have 262 unique beers with over 22,000 ratings. With a global average rating of 3.73 (as of 2.18.24).

Their Untappd description reads: July 2019 UPDATE: Alecraft was voted Best Maryland Brewery by Zymurgy Magazine! Thank you to all of our homebrewers! In the fall of 2017 we made the leap to add a brewery and taproom to our homebrew supply shop. Our small system and fully stocked home brew shop give us an enormous library of ingredients at our fingertips. Our beer is crafted to be exactly what we intended: no compromises on ingredients. The access to the shop ensures we have the full creative expression we dreamed of as home brewers. In our taproom we prioritize customer service second only to the quality of beer we produce. Our staff is engaging, approachable and trained on the various styles of beer we produce. AleCraft is what happens when the right people with complementary skills come together to strive towards their dream. Our story is the ideal fusion of passion, experience, fate and hard work while searching for beer perfection across all styles.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
