WELCOME TO THE FLOOD ZONE MARKETPLACE & BREWERY!
Flood Zone Marketplace and Brewery is a place deeply rooted into the hard working community of Union Bridge. Originally operating as a family-owned grocery store in the 1960’s, this historic building has survived countless storms over the last sixty years, including Tropical Storm Agnes in 1972, and stands as a testament to the resilient spirit of its community.
Jerry and Beth Stambaugh purchased the building on the banks of Little Pipe Creek in Fall 2018 with a vision to create a unique space within Union Bridge for travelers and local citizens alike to come together and enjoy this beautiful community. The Flood Zone Marketplace houses vendors offering fresh, local produce, groceries, and crafts. Make sure to take advantage of The Food Spot within Flood Zone as well, so you can have a bite to eat while you shop. Hard work and diligence fueled the renovations that have produced Flood Zone Marketplace and Brewery and we hope that you will join us here for some creek side shopping and sipping.
While in town, please take the time to see what else Union Bridge has to offer. Visit our historic Train Museum, walk the scenic nature trails along Little Pipe Creek, or have a delicious meal at one of our local restaurants. We can’t wait to see you!
We have a welcoming taproom fit for the crowd who loves craft beer. The large pull up door will be open to a great outdoor patio area in the warmer weather months for soaking up the sun, creek side sipping, and enjoying the fresh air. We also have two pass through windows from the patio if you don’t feel like coming inside to order your next drink!
The televisions will provide sports entertainment and updates on upcoming events and beer releases. We also host live entertainment every weekend, so check back on our events page and Facebook for updates.
The couch and chairs will make you feel right at home, where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the beer and entertainment. Or, grab your friends and a large table by the window and play a board game. We also have plenty of seating right at the bar.
No matter where you choose to hang out, you will feel at home in the Flood Zone.
HUGE BEER GARDEN
For even more creekside enjoyment!
OUTSIDE SERVING WINDOWS
Fast and convenient service!
We've provided even more space for ease in ordering drinks! We have an outside serving window for draft service, and an additional window for flights and carryout crowlers, located on our (seasonally) heated patio. This enables us to serve our customers in the safest, easiest way without lines forming to better distribute our services. We have a 9 to 11 beers and hard seltzer on tap and welcoming and knowledgeable staff who are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

BEER GARDEN PAVILION & PATIO
Live music every weekend!
Featuring a creek side view, we have added a permanent pavilion over our beer garden, that will be partially enclosed in the winter months, providing a heated, comfortable space. In the warm weather months, it will be an open space that allows the breeze, while providing shade from the sun.
Two large fire pits with seating, a wood burning fire place and portable heaters will make your visit cozy during these cooler days. Also, overhead heaters on the patio provides even more heat!
For you music lovers, we have a great stage and host live music weekly in our outdoor beer garden pavilion. All music can be heard throughout the entire property, inside & out!
