Brewed onsite in historic Downtown Frederick, MD

Co-owners Paul Tinney and Matt Thrasher were home-brewing buddies long before Rockwell opened its doors in March 2017. Inspired by the beers they were making and the budding craft brewery scene in Frederick, Rockwell Brewery was born.  The name is an ode to Tinney’s background as a designer of acoustic guitars and creating a theme of blending artisan work in craft beer and music.

Head Brewer, Scott McKernon, started brewing at home back in the early 90s out of necessity due to a lack of good beer available.  With a background in Chemistry, a love of cooking, and inspiration from the growing availability of new ingredients, Scott has filled our taps with a wide variety of beer styles and flavor profiles.  There is something on the “beer wall” that will please everyone, including but not limited to stouts, porters, reds, IPAs, blondes and the occasional barrel-aged.

Rounding out the team is Director of Operations, Casey Trimboli. With a love of consuming craft beer, keeping everything/everyone organized, a new-found chalk talent, and a slight social media obsession, she helps to keep the tasting room fun and welcoming.
