The Frederick Keys (High A; Carolina League) have debuted the 4 1/2 Taphouse, a stand at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium featuring 24 taps from craft breweries in Frederick County.
“The 4 ½ Taphouse has been one of my favorite projects to work on since becoming the General Manager of the Frederick Keys,” said Dave Ziedelis. “Frederick’s craft beer scene has exploded and the 4 ½ Taphouse will feature not only some of the area’s big hitters such as Flying Dog Brewery and Brewer’s Alley but a myriad of other great craft breweries who are newer to the area. This is a huge win for the Frederick craft beer industry and Keys fans.”
A stand with a baseball-themed name, the 4 ½ Taphouse is named after the number of innings required for a regulation baseball game. Located along the third base concourse, the Taphouse will provide fans with a diverse selection of beverage options.
Beers at the 4 ½ Taphouse will be rotated in and out throughout the baseball season. Selections will be diverse and include lagers, IPAs, stouts, porters, ciders and more. Craft breweries that will have a presence include Flying Dog, Brewer’s Alley, Monacacy Brewing Company, Attaboy, Olde Mother, Rockwell, Midnight Run, Idiom, Steinhardt, Smoketown, Red Shedman and Milkhouse.
All selections can be viewed on flat screens located inside the 4 ½ Taphouse, while menus can be viewed and will be updated through the Untappd App. The Keys will be a certified venue, while fans are encouraged to download this free app to check into their location and view the most up-to-date menus at the 4 ½ Taphouse.
