I was in the vicinity, I had read about the Burley Oak on a beer Web site and decided to stop in. I sampled five different beers from a wide variety of choices. All were excellent and fine examples of their respective styles. The bartender who served me was friendly and knowledgeable. When I complemented the owner/brewmaster, he was very... More

A lot of craft beer bars and breweries can have a very elitist feel if you're not a regular or you don't rate beers based on things like "headiness" or "mouth feel." However, if you sit at the bar at Burley Oak you will be comfortable and impressed. I go to Burley Oak once every few months, but I wish... More

It there's a place in heaven serving craft beer, it's probably modeled after Burley Oak. Set in an historic cooperage in the "Coolest Small Town in America" has a great ambiance as well as the welcoming kind vibe that immediately makes you feel at home, no matter if you're a regular or first time visitor. Of course the most compelling... More

My wife and I spent my birthday weekend in OC. I always enjoy local breweries so we decide to take a short drive to Berlin to sample the brews. Nothing fancy here, just beer and that's good unless you're looking for something to snack on while enjoying the beer. No food or even a bad a chips. Oh well, the... More

Tried all 12 of their available brews. 11 of the 12 were delicious. The triple IPA (awesome sauce) was extremely good, as was the wit it and quit it.

My boyfriend and I visited here on a tour of Eastern Shore breweries. I've had several of Burley Oaks beers before and am a big fan. The taproom is really nice and behind the bar you see straight into the working brewery. I wish they gave more tours! We weren't able to make the 3:00 tour time so having some... More

Burley Oak makes a wide variety of beers, and a tasting can be quite informative as well as fun for a group. The tasting room is a bit out of the way but there is ample parking and the sampling glasses allow one to try different brews without bloating! What is missing is a menu for food to try with... More

This up-and-coming brewery gives free tours at 3 pm on Sat and Sun's, and has a very good assortment of flavorful beers on tap. They do not serve food, but you can order from a number of restaurants that will deliver there, or you could bring your own food in. The taproom is centered around a long wooden bar, with... More

We were told at the visitor center that there was a brewery in Berlin and we asked if they had a root beer, Yes! That's always worth a visit. What a sweet tasting bar with other informal seating for taking some time with your favorites. They charge $2 a piece for whatever number of beers you want to try in... More

We stumbled upon this place here on Trip Advisor and had to try it while we were in town. They had a nice variety of beer and my girlfriend and I each found one we loved. There were plenty of people coming in and out that were also enjoying the beer. One of the coolest things about the place is... More
