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!

Schreyer's Helles

Lager

This refreshing German brew features Pilsner & Vienna malts which give it bready flavors, and Lagering yeast that gives it a crisp, spicy finish. 

We named it for Friedrich Julius Schreyer from Bremen, Germany. He was responsible for building one of the first steam-powered sawmills in our neighboring community, Millville, in the 1900's. Schreyer bought the existing St. Andrew’s Bay Lumber Company, renamed it the German American Lumber Company, upgraded it with steam power, and increased its lumber output from 20,000 to over 90,000 feet of finished lumber per day.

Sir Loin

Stout

This is the biggest stout we brew. 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.

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

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.

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!

$7/6.2% ABV /55 IBU

Pollywog Black Currant

Cider

Our newest batch of Pollywog Cider features an apple base and added black currants to give it that bright pink color, fruity aromas, and a tangy, tart finish. (yes, it's Gluten-Free!)

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."

Segler's Berry Smoothie

Sour

This sour ale features blackberries, blueberries, and cherry juice for sweet & tart fruity flavors. Added lactose gives it a super smooth mouthfeel. 

We named it after the Segler (SEE-gler) family. Their old farmhouse from the late 1800’s at the corner of Cone Avenue and 10th Street is all that remains of the family farm. W.F Segler and his wife Leola raised 13 kids in this house and all of those little farmhands stayed busy growing a wide variety of produce and selling it at Segler's Market inside a Jitney Jungle Store on Harrison Avenue in 1926, and just two years later opened their own brick & mortar shop next to the Panama Theater.

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!
