Beer Menu

We offer a rotating selection of ten artisanally crafted small-batch brews. We take pride in brewing every batch on-site in Bel Air, Maryland. Each offering is treated with a unique enzyme to reduce the gluten below 20PPM.

Mars Climate Orbiter
ABV 10 - IBU 50

American Barleywine

Named for the ill-fated space probe that burned up in Mars' atmosphere due to a computer that was programmed to control it using non-SI units, this barleywine has a strong dose of chocolate malt to make it a uniquely delicious treat.

ShoeString
ABV 4.9 - IBU 16

Kolsch

Our take on an authentic Kolsch. Made with German malt, just a touch of wheat and noble hops it's a refreshing brew that can be easily sessioned.

Dos Bayas Sour Ale
ABV 4.8 - IBU 4

Fruit Beer

A fruited sour ale using Lactobacillus Plantarum from Lallemand.


Call Me
ABV 4.6 - IBU 17

Blonde Ale

Anytime, day or night, this classic American blond ale is a thirst-quenching, well-balanced libation.

Le Renard
ABV 7 - IBU 70

American IPA

Our flagship American IPA. Brewed as a classic West Coast IPA with a bit more of a hop-forward finish. This is the evolution of our brewer's first all-grain home brew recipe over 10 years ago.

Bel Ale
ABV 5.5 - IBU 45

American Pale Ale

We've fine-tuned this classic American Pale Ale to finish clean and slightly dry, with just enough backbone to give a refreshingly balanced experience.


Crucible
ABV 9 - IBU 29

Belgian Tripel

A delicious Belgian tripel with a sweet malt backbone and plenty of phenolics. A favorite of one of our brewers!

It's Tapped!
ABV 5.7 - IBU 23

Marzen

German style Oktoberfest using all German grains, hops and yeast. Slightly malty and easy drinking.

Black Eyed Fox
ABV 7 - IBU 90

Specialty IPA: Black IPA

A Black IPA version of our house IPA, Le Renard.


Recalcitrant
ABV 8.3 - IBU 77

Double IPA

A double helping of Citra Hops added to the fermenter make this a beer delicious treat. Well-balanced, and a bit hazy, it fits into the NEIPA/NEDIPA style.

Bodhi Hibiscus Saison
ABV 5 - IBU 25

Saison

A Belgian Saison with a generous portion of Hibiscus flowers added to the boil and ferment to give it a pretty pink hue and a nice tart flavor.

Resession
ABV 4.5 - IBU 50

American IPA

Our session IPA is brewed with a focus on a hop forward finish and aggressive dry hopping. Its more subdued bitterness leaves room for the more delicate malt profile of a lower alcohol beer to shine through. You'll want to more than one, and that's just fine! - it's only 4.5%


About

Our Story

AleCraft started with a passion for artisan beer and a desire to achieve a dream. Owners Eryn and Brad Streett met in college and fell in love with craft beer. Almost immediately after graduation they began home brewing and touring breweries regularly. After experimenting with malting their own barley and growing their own hops they decided to enter the brewing industry and open a home brew supply shop in 2013. A chance meeting of fellow passionate home brewer Ken added a third partner into the business and provided a valuable skill set and complementary brewing experience.

The shop provided a creative outlet for all three brewers, who were regularly teaching multiple classes a weekend and developing hundreds of uniquely refined recipes. Countless lessons were learned and invaluable brewing experience was gained. Customer experience is our priority and we were lucky to gain a loyal following.

The dream of the brewery came in the early days of the home brew shop. The brewery was the answer to two questions, both were inquiries we received regularly. From friends who sampled our creations: How can we buy this? From those who browsed our home brew kits: What does this taste like? The brewery provided a single answer to both, and a path to share our passion with a wider audience than the supply shop alone

In the fall of 2017 we made the leap into commercial brewing. 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 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.

Our History

  • 2007

    The passion is born

    Eryn and Brad graduated from Salisbury University in 2006 with a taste for craft beer and inspiration from the nearby Dogfish Head Brewery. After purchasing their first home in 2007 they immediately jumped into all-grain home brewing.

  • June 2010

    Dreaming up a business

    Eryn and Brad moved to northern Harford County Maryland to put down roots on a small farmette. They purchased the property with the intent to grow their own hops, and malt their own small-batch barley. While they no longer malt barley, they still tend to 120 hop plants and integrate them into an annual harvest brew.

  • September 2013

    Transition to Home Brew

    Seeing a demand for a full-service home brew supply shop in the Bel Air area Eryn took her passion for home brewing full time with the opening of AleCraft Brewing Supply, LLC. A fortunate chance encounter with Ken Roberson, a fellow experienced and passionate home brewer, began a partnership that would make the entire endeavour possible. Our grand opening was September 6, 2013, Eryn and Brad's first wedding anniversary.

  • March 2015

    Home Brew Expansion

    AleCraft Brewing Supply, LLC quickly outgrew its humble beginnings on Office Street and moved to an expanded location next to the Bel Air Bakery on Bond Street (now the delicious Newberry Cafe).

  • November 2017

    Addition of Brewery and Taproom

    In the summer of 2017 AleCraft created a new business as a Microbrewery and expanded into the perfect location in the front of the Preston's Stationary Building.
