Brewery Spotlight: BrewHaHa Brewing Company

Spread the love

We talked to Pete Ballou, the owner of BrewHaHa Brewing Company in Elkton, who believes beer simply tastes better with laughter. BrewHaHa, a comedy brewhouse, just celebrated its grand opening and is the newest brewery along the Beerwerks Trail. Learn why the six beers on tap have quirky names, what your kids can do while you’re tasting, and, most importantly, why the BrewHaHa motto is “Because BAD Beer is NO Laughing Matter!”


Friday 3-9

Saturday 1-8

The brewery is closed for production Tuesday-Thursday. However, it will offer growlers to go for sale or pints on back deck (under tent or in our grassy area).

Do you offer tours?

Tours are not provided but the entire brewhouse can be viewed from the taproom through the windows.

What are your go-to brews and what makes them unique?

New and upcoming beers:

Broken Glass a Belgian IPA will pick a wallop at 8.75% ABV, Patchwork Pumpkin our Imperial Pumpkin Porter is on tap for October.

Also, we are doing a variation of our Must Have IPA called “boobilicious.” It is a beer to benefit “WeRTickledPink,” a local organization that helps fight breast cancer. 

All of our beers have a quirky or funny name and there is a story behind every one of them.  Ask us, and we will gladly tell you. 

What is something unique/quirky about the brewery that most people don’t know?

Our beers are also ski-trail rated from beginner to expert and freestyle for specialty beers.

Do you distribute locally or have any local collaborations?

All brews are sold solely at the brewhouse.

Do you allow dogs? Are you kid-friendly? And do you offer food onsite?

We allow dogs in our outside areas and of course service dogs wherever they need to be.  We’re also kid-friendly. We have a mini pool table, foosball, and games in our “veteran room,” which is a small room that seats six but allows for fun times to be had.

What events do you offer?

Eventually, we will have comedy workshops and some local comedy at the brewery like open mic comedy night. Right now, our focus is putting out good beer because, like our trademarked motto…

“Because BAD Beer is NO Laughing Matter!”
