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.

Our Beers

Our beers span the spectrum from light approachable ales to hazy IPAs, sours, and porters. We pride ourselves on a well-rounded variety with something on tap for just about everyone.

Broken Hearts

Hazy IPA

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Broken Heart Hazy IPA is on tap at History Class. We named it after the French Fort Crevecoeur which means “Broken Heart.” The fort was built in the year 1717 over in Port St. Joe, Florida, on land that had been claimed by the Spanish. Armed with artillery and 50 French troops, Fort Crevecoeur was the most formidable military outpost between Pensacola and St. Augustine but was abandoned a short time later. Today, the site is indicated with a historic marker at the intersection of Columbus Street and Highway 98 in Port St. Joe, Florida.

Sir Loin

Stout

We teamed up with The Press and infused this stout with 3 pounds of coffee beans and then aged it on plenty of cacao nibs for big, strong, decadent coffee & chocolate flavors. This is our biggest stout so we named it after Sir Loin, a local legend. For decades, this statue stood guard outside of a Panama City Beach family steakhouse and was the largest known statue in Florida weighing in at 10 tons! In 1987 he took on the new persona of King Neptune and stood tall until 2004 when he was finally torn down. Long live SIR LOIN!

Kölsch

15 pounds of local wildflower honey goes into each batch of this German-style ale. It's light, slightly floral, and super easy-drinking.
