Local beer, southern bites, & local stories.

We're a brewpub located in downtown Panama City, Florida excited to tell historic stories of our community around food and drink. We hope you'll join us downtown!

Our Mission

We love this town and the stories of how this community was built. It was built by ordinary people who gathered and did extraordinary things together.

We're excited to tell these stories around food and drink. We want to be a place our community can come gather, meet each other, support progress by supporting each other, and help Bay County realize it's untapped potential.

Southern Small Bites

We serve beer-friendly food that we feel represents our community and culture.
