The city of Laurel is equidistant between Washington, D.C., twenty miles or so to to the south, and Baltimore, Maryland, to the north. Jailbreak Brewing is located just to the north of Laurel, in Howard County. It is that county's first —and only— brewery, beginning public operations just this year, in April.
It's a surprisingly impressive facility inside, plopped, as it is, within a drab industrial park neighborhood. Sort of hipster meets the neighborhood meets industrial chic —polished metal, high ceilings, and exposed block— with well-crafted beers (several fruited or flavored) and serious forethought on the brewing side. It's draft-only (and only in Maryland) for now, but cans and distribution further afield are planned.
