Rudy and his team turned his home-brew operation into a taproom in October 2015.
And now, just under a year later, Independent is still going strong in Bel Air. A point of pride for Rudy is that all of their beers are gluten free. Every few months, they have local artists cycle their work through the building—so the community is supported and the bar gets some fresh décor.
Some other services at Independent:
Live music on Saturdays
Food trucks for lunch and dinner during the week
Constantly rotating batch of brews
Barroom with over 70 seats
Dog and child friendly
Growlers to go
"Crowlers," 32 ounces, canned right at the bar, to go
