If you’re looking for a new place to enjoy an after-work drink with your coworkers or to unwind on the weekend with your neighbors at Center Pointe Luxury Apartments, there’s a Waldorf establishment you need to know about. Bluedyer Distilling Company is a whiskey, gin, and rum distillery located in Waldorf, Maryland. Charles County residents know Bluedyer for its quality spirits, fascinating history, and ongoing community involvement.
History of Blue Dyer Distilling Company
The distillery’s website states that the first “BlueDyer” worked in grain farming, milling, and distilling in Southern Pennsylvania in the early 18th century. Eleven generations later, Ryan, the distillery’s founder, has dedicated his life to continuing the family tradition. His goal is to produce “high-quality spirits in the tradition of craftsmanship passed on from generation to generation.”
Visiting the Distillery
Bluedyer is located at 52 Industrial Park Drive #15, only a short 10-minute Uber or Lyft ride from Center Pointe Apartments. They produce gold rum, dark rum, two types of whiskey, and two types of gin. Bluedyer offers tours Tuesday – Friday 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM and Saturday – Sunday 2:00 PM – 10:00 PM. Just fill out the tour request form on their website. Tours include sample cocktails. No special events are currently posted to their events calendar, but they do occasionally offer special events. For example, earlier in June, you could sign up for a doormat painting night. This included a complimentary cocktail and tour of the distillery, in addition to supplies for the craft.
Local Food Trucks
The distillery regularly partners with local food trucks so you can pair their delicious drinks with some tasty eats. County Manners, Smoker’s Delight BBQ, and the Gospel Chick are a few of the food trucks you will frequently see at Bluedyer. County Manners serves up several varieties of tacos, sliders, and nachos. Smoker’s Delight BBQ specializes in providing — you guessed it — the best BBQ in Southern Maryland. Locals know Gospel Chick for their southern fried chicken tenders. They also offer a mouthwatering rockfish filet, depending on availability. Their delicious sides include Memphis cole slaw, The Heavenly Heat Mac & Cheese, Handcut French Fries, and Streets Paved in Gold Deep Fried Corn with Old Bay & Sriracha Hot Sauce. The food truck schedules vary, so check their social media accounts before counting on dinner at the distillery.
