I stop in here every time I'm in town or on way to Ocean City, MD. Latest visit during Labor Day weekend had me confused, girl behind the bar "Ignored" my wife and I, to the point of me stating we'd like some service...while she stood right in front of us cleaning glasses and filling others growlers. Another employee whom... More

Come for the wonderful varieties of very local beer. Many of the ingredients are from farms I know. You can get a root beer here too. You'll need to BYOF - Bring your own food, but it is not a problem. I've been a customer since they opened and it only gets better.

Great place for a rainy afternoon great wait staff. Brain has a hit on his hands as you can find his brews in most local establishments.

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
