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!

Sir Loin Coffee Stout (Nitro)
Stout

This is the biggest stout we brew. We teamed up with Panama City Coffee Co. 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.

Lake Caroline Belgian Wit

Wheat Ale

Our take on a Belgian Witbier brewed with oats, coriander, and orange peel for that classic unfiltered, smooth body and refreshing, citrus flavor.

Union Soldier

IPA

New England Style Hazy IPA dry hopped with citra and calypso hops to give it a bright, citrus-y front and a musky, dry finish. Why the name Union Soldier? It's a great local story: watch the video

Belle Booth

Blonde Ale

This easy-drinkin' American classic is known for its simplicity and smooth finish. We named it after Belle Booth, who was an important member of this community back when Panama City first became Panama City! She was our very first female postmaster. After the passing of her first husband Dr. Booth, Belle married Robert McKenzie (Panama City's first Mayor) and she is credited with building the McKenzie House with her bare hands in 1909. The house still stands as a historic landmark right behind the brewery!

Hawk's Sipper

Pale Ale

We combine Pilsner malt & flaked oats in the mashbill for this pale ale, then finish it off with Citra hops for citrus notes and a clean mouthfeel. We named this beer after Hawk Massalina. Click here to see Hawk's story.

Ella Mae

Light Ale

Traditional German Malts and Hops alongside Norwegian yeast give this beer citrus flavors with a crisp finish.

We named it after Ella Mae Sapp. In 1916 she and her husband Judge Joshua Sapp built their grand home, just down the road from the courthouse. The Sapp House is a local Treasure and has recently been restored and transformed into an event venue where people can gather to celebrate life, love, and family.

Señor Düsselhoff aka "The Hoff"

Altbier

This beer is like the shady older cousin to our Gringo Suave Mexican Ale... we brewed this German Altbier specially to pair with El Weirdo tacos. It's a copper colored, crisp, clean ale with a nutty finish that really compliments a delicious street taco with some cotija cheese. Yum!

The Pines

IPA

This piney, classic IPA is named after the old Pines Hotel. It was constructed by the Atlanta and St. Andrews Bay Railroad in 1919 near what is now the fuel depot and giant tank farm located at Beach Dr. and 6th Street. Developers built this up-scale waterfront resort hotel to help make the shores of St. Andrews Bay a tourist destination. Sadly, in November of 1932, a spark from one of the chimneys ignited the roof. Constructed of longleaf pine, the fire spread rapidly through the hotel.  Miraculously, everyone survived.

Governor Stone

Irish Ale

We used both light and dark crystal malts to brew this Irish Ale, giving it a medium to full body with toasted, nutty notes. This one has a super crisp finish that will satisfy even the lager-lovers out there!

Strong Ale

Brewed with plenty of sweet potatoes, marshmallow, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and lactose for a sweet & scrumptious strong ale that pairs perfectly with Fall weather and holiday meals.

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."

Grey Ghost

Blonde Stout

Possibly one of our most unique brews to date, Grey Ghost is a Blonde Stout on a nitro tap and infused with Earl Grey Tea. The result is an incredibly smooth ale with fruity aromas balanced by earthy, spicy notes from the Earl Grey, and a strong, slightly tannic finish. The tea makes this blonde more of a brunette, but it isn't a traditional dark stout. You'll discover something new with every sip! 

We named it after a former Navy Tugboat. "Grey Ghost was sunk 22 miles offshore by Panama City Marine Institute’s Artificial Reef Program in coordination with Bay County and a federal grant on July 12, 1978. She landed on her port side in 105 to 110 feet of water and due to her location on the edge of a natural reef, she immediately attracted a huge variety of aquatic life," and is a dive site still used today.

SeaLab Exp. 278

IPA

This IPA features an experimental hop variety (EXP 278). Since it's an experiment of our own, we thought it was only fitting to name it for the Naval Support Activity (NSA) on St. Andrew's Bay, where "SEALAB" has been performing some cool marine experiments for over 75 years.

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!
