Our Beers

Our beers span the spectrum from hazy IPAs, ciders, stouts, and porters. We're not focused on any certain style of beer, we brew drinkable beers everyone can enjoy. We're a small neighborhood brewery and we don't boast any "flagship" beers.

Wait, no flagship beers?

Variety is fun, having an ever changing assortment of beers is more interesting than coming to drink the same beers over and over. Our brewers like to experiment and we haven't gotten a complaint yet!

The Jack Mashburn
Scottish Ale

“The Jack Mashburn” is our take on a Scottish Ale. Its slightly caramelized flavor profile with a grainy dry finish is inspired by the pub-style session ales measured by schillings in Scotland.

Jack Mashburn was a beloved citizen of our community. At the age of 22, Mr. Mashburn was elected to the Florida House and he helped create the first park for black beachgoers in the South. This progression led by Mr. Mashburn was so controversial he lost his seat in the Florida House for it. He championed preservation around Econfina Creek. Later in life, he was known to drop off magnolia flowers at friends' houses and businesses around the community. His love for this community clearly never stopped. Jack Mashburn passed away in 2017.

Steele's IPA

IPA

West coast style IPA for the hop-heads! Brewed with a variety of malts and a combination of Columbus, Chinook, Citra, and Simcoe hops, Steele's starts off with caramel malt a hints of cedar and then careens into a mesh of piney, citrusy, ever so slightly minty bitterness through a lasting finish.

Gaston Saison

Farmhouse Ale

Our newest exbeeriment for the taco-truck-soon-to-be-brewpub is this delightful Saison. This French-Belgian style farmhouse ale features fruity aromas & flavors that balance out the dry, peppery finish brought to you by Triple Pearl hops and a slightly "funky," Saison yeast. It's very refreshing and pairs perfectly with tacos from El Weirdo!

Val Valentine

East Coast IPA

We named this East Coast IPA after the artist who designed & built all of those cool rides at Miracle Strip Amusement Park & Shipwreck Island. This batch features El Dorado hops, which gives it notes of tropical fruit and hard candy. It's dry hopped, but is well balanced, slightly more juicy than bitter!

Mound Avenue

Brown Ale

This is our take on an American Brown Ale. We added 3 pounds of local wildflower honey to this batch just for fun. 

We named this beer after Mound Ave. over in West End St. Andrews. Over 1000 years ago this area was a Native American settlement. They ate a lot of shellfish and over time this area piled up with shells forming the mound we see today. To this day local residents find shells, pottery, and arrowheads when they dig around in their yards.

Island Hopper

IPA

New England Style Hazy IPA featuring a unique Norwegian yeast with sultana dry hop. Island Hopper has a potent citrus, lemon-forward aroma and a juicy mouthfeel with a lingering finish. This batch features lots of citra hops for flavor, but it isn't overly bitter. If you're not sure about hoppy beers, try this one, it's our "starter IPA."

The Taproom

History Class is a gathering place for friends to share stories over great food and beer. We spent years curating local artifacts and photographs to fill our taproom with the rich history of Panama City. When you visit, everything from the chairs you sit in to the art on the walls has a story to tell, and we hope that you enjoy hearing them as well as sharing your own with us. Enjoy 15 beers on tap, a variety of southern snacks, a comfortable space, and friendly staff to share stories with!
