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!

SeptemberFestbier
Lager

This is our take on a German Festbier like the kind they drink in Munich! Not to be confused with Marzen or other Oktoberfest style brews, this is a light lager with bready aromas and a peppery finish. It pairs perfectly with a giant pretzel, just in time for Oktoberfest season. Prost!

Gringo Suave

Mexican Style Ale

Gringo Suave is our take on a Mexican cerveza and it's a perfect match for those delicious El Weirdo street tacos from our taco truck located behind the brewery. It's incredibly smooth with a lingering finish that begs for a salty tortilla & fresh cilantro to compliment the flavors! Check out the taco truck menu & hours at elweirdodowntown.com

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

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.

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!

SeaLab Exp. 522

IPA

This IPA features an experimental hop variety from Hop Breeding Company (HBC 522). 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.

Segler's Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie

Sour Ale

This sour ale features fresh strawberry and kiwi purees for a juicy, fruity, tart treat!  Added vanilla & lactose give Segler's its smooth mouthfeel and sweet, creamy notes to balance the tartness. 

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 Hero

Porter

English style Porter with mild chocolate notes and a crisp, clean finish. We named our porter The Hero in honor of Lt. Edwin Gorbet, the pilot who saved Jinks Junior High. His story is one that every Panama City citizen should know. Click here to see Edwin's story!

McKenzie's Finest Milk Stout

Stout

English-style stout brewed with milk sugar for a creamy mouthfeel and just a touch of sweetness on the finish to round out notes of roasted coffee. We put this one on nitro for an even smoother finish. 

This ale is named after Panama City's very first mayor, Robert McKenzie. His house still stands as a historic landmark right behind our brewery in downtown Panama City.

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."

Pollywog Dark Fruit Cider

Cider

Our newest batch of gluten-free hard apple cider features added plum, cherry, and black currant for a fruity pop of flavor and a pretty magenta hue. There's no added sugar in this one, it's a dry cider with a tart finish, with only the natural sweetness from the fruit.

Hathaway Whole Cone

Hazy IPA

We extracted the oils from whole cone hops before the brewing process which created a fully hopped IPA with low bitterness. Packed with full citrus & earthy pine flavors, this will be your new favorite Hazy IPA. We named it after Dr. Fons A. Hathaway. You probably recognize that name because the bridge that connects Panama City to Panama City Beach is named after him.

Purcell's

British Pub Ale

This is our take on a traditional English Pub Ale. It has a malty flavor profile with a slightly sweet nuttiness and a smooth finish made even creamier by the Nitro tap!

We named it after Irish-American mapmaker Joseph Purcell.  The year was 1778, the American Revolutionary War was raging and Mr. Purcell, a British Captain, led a small group of Creek warriors to the British base in Pensacola on the old Ekanachattee Trading Path. Their journey took them through a portion of what eventually would become Bay County so, in a roundabout not so historically significant way, the American Revolutionary War passed through Panama City's backyard!

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!
