Virginia Fisher, left, and Tory Fisher, both of Frederick, chat Saturday as they sample locally made beers at the Frederick City Brewfest at the Frederick fairgrounds.

While the Breakfast Festival of Maryland left something to be desired for many attendees, the first Hyperlocal BrewFest was hustling and bustling next door at building #11 of the Frederick County Fairgrounds.

The festival, which was hosted by Rockwell Brewing Company, featured five additional breweries from Frederick County: Smoketown Brewing Station, Flying Dog Brewery, Monocacy Brewing Co., Idiom Brewing Co., and Steinhardt Brewing. A variety of vendors selling jewelry and other goods were also present.

"The low cost of entry was a big draw.....most craft beer festivals are much more expesnive, locking attendees into buying drink tickets and then having to drink 10 beers to get their money’s worth." Hahahaha! Welcome to the world of ripoff capitalism. The "craft" beer you get is just overhyped overpriced Miller High Life. No craft goes in it at all. And they all taste the same after the first. But no one forces you to drink 10. I guarantee after the third I could fill you glass with a Pabst and you wouldn't know the difference, especially if the light was dim.
