We’re an independent brewery started by four local guys who are passionate about Florida Beer. We wanted to create a brewery in our home town for beer lovers like us.
We do not distribute or sell our beers to restaurants and other bars. We create an ever rotating selection of beers that are founded in the long tradition of brewing science with a desire to make progressive styles that excite us. We like to push the boundaries and operate on the fringes. We make both traditional and progressive beers that are well thought out and exhibit balance, flavor, and a sense of place.
We strive to balance personal profit with giving back to our community by pricing our beers in fair and affordable way.
We don’t make beer with marshmallows, fruity pebbles, or any other processed ingredient. We love the spirit of experimentation, but we draw the line at using processed products in our beer. There are many ways to obtain flavor, but using syrups or processed products is contrary to what we do. We believe in supporting the other businesses around us, especially farmers.
Florida has some of the best produce in the world. We try and use fresh, whole fruit sourced from local farms throughout the year in various styles of beer. We often travel to the farm, pick the fruit ourselves, and have relationships with various farmers throughout Florida. Its not just something we say, its a true commitment to sourcing local products from the farms that need it most.
The brewery is unabashedly hop forward. We love hops so much, we started growing our own hops in 2016. The Florida hop scene is exploding and we are happy to be part of it. We started the Southern Hop Initiative (SOHI) in 2017 and we now have over 65 plants growing hydroponically outdoors at the Urban Farming Institute (UFI) in Oakland Park. We are excited as 2018 should be the first year we will harvest enough to use in a commercially brewed beer at the brewery. We are thrilled at the prospect of making Florida Beer with Florida Hops.
In the taproom we have no TV’s, cornhole, or giant jenga because we wanted to make something different. A place with a sense of community where people can come together over a great locally made beer in an environment buzzing with interesting conversation. We wanted to design a public house that brings people together around the simple idea of sharing a homemade, local product they can be proud of. We wanted to build community and promote the sharing of progressive ideas that starts with a simple pint of beer in just the right place.
Our Taproom is open 7 days a week, with an ever-rotating selection of house-made beers to enjoy here or take home in 32oz Growlers.
