7 Locks Brewing opens tomorrow at an industrial park in Rockville.

The 15-barrel system at the Rockville warehouse location is capable of producing about 3,000 kegs per year.Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 6.57.05 PM

Owners Jim Beeman and Keith Beutel, who were roommates at the University of Maryland, plan to have six to eight beers on tap initially, including a spicy rye ale and an oatmeal stout.

7 Locks plans to partner with food trucks to offer food. There’s no kitchen at the brewery, as the owners are taking advantage of a 2014 change in state law that allows them to serve beer as a brewery without having to offer food.

We are a BYO-food facility. Food Trucks will often be found setting up in our parking lot as well.
