FROM GROUND, TO GLASS. WITH A VIEW.

Lone Oak is not just a brewery at a farm. Rather, it’s a farm with a brewery. It’s 28.66 acres of bucolic fields and streams, a pond, and wide-open spaces.  It’s wildflowers and wildlife.  It’s crops – barley and hops – and berries and hay. It’s bees raised to produce honey. It’s sunsets and a majestic, pre-Civil War oak tree.  It’s our brewhouse – carefully built, piece by piece by world-class craftsmen, using local lumber for the porch posts, beams, and bar. It’s a taproom that feels like home. A little bit of all of this is infused in each pint of Lone Oak’s craft beer.  

THE HISTORY

If only this old oak tree could talk it would tell you about the former owner of The Oaks, as it was known back then – The Griffiths, and then Samuel Riggs IV of the Riggs Bank family. Riggs enlisted during WWII and bought the farm in 1949. He built a reputation for his dedication to farming and his church, dabbled in genealogy –and served as chairman of Sandy Spring Bank for more than 30 years. It would also tell you about a former owner’s beloved dog, Mac, who died in 1918 and whose headstone still sits close to MD-108. But more than anything, The Lone Oak would tell you it’s glad for its view. 

THE TEAM

When Chris and Charlie Miller met Ralph and Ryan Mollet, the Miller brothers knew they had found the right partners for the farm brewery project they envisioned. The Mollets shared the Millers’ values – hard work, an entrepreneurial drive, and loyalty – and, like the Millers, they prioritized family, friends, and faith.  They also liked beer.  The Millers and Mollets combined these values and passions to make their dream this reality – Lone Oak Farm Brewing Company. Welcome. We’re glad you’re here.
