Here’s What to Expect When You Rent a Beer Yurt at Waredaca Brewing Company:

Waredaca Brewing Company

Located on a 220-acre horse farm in Laytonsville, Maryland, Waredaca Brewing Company is committed to sustainability, local ingredients and brewing beer using the best practices possible. The farm has been in the same family for over 60 years and was the first farm brewery in Montgomery County, Maryland when it opened in 2015.

All seating areas throughout the property are spaced out to ensure proper social distancing among groups. The yurts are sprinkled among the picnic tables and Adirondack chairs.

Waredaca Brewing Company is located in Montgomery County’s 93,000-acre Agricultural Reserve. It’s the only place in the Washington, DC region where you can drink local beer on a working horse farm.

Once your reservation is confirmed when you arrive, a yurt is assigned to your group to use during the duration of your visit. For an additional charge, you can have a fire maintained by the Waredaca crew. Don’t forget to bring marshmallows or order a s’mores kit in advance.

The interior features a cozy couch, chairs and blanket covered straw bales that seat up to 10 people. Small LED lights, pumpkins, fall garland and lanterns add to the cozy feel. While there is a food truck available to order a nosh, Waredaca also allows people to bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages.

All beers include something grown/produced on the farm and their production schedule is timed to align with harvest time. You and your guests can order through Waredaca’s mobile ordering service or with traditional bar service in their Tap Room — there is no table service provided to the yurts.

As the sun sets and the stars appear in the evening sky, the entire property glows with twinkle lights, making the time you spent at Waredaca even more memorable.
