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!

Officer Wilson's

Amber Ale

This unique Amber Ale features a mixture of toasted German malts and American hops that give it a nice clean finish. We named this one after Officer “JC” Wilson, who was Bay County's first black police officer. He was a true local hero who always stood for what he believed in.

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!

Gardner's Peach Milkshake IPA

IPA

This silky smooth hazy IPA is packed with plenty of lactose and peach puree for a big creamy mouthfeel and that perfect amount of sweetness to balance the bitter hop flavors. We named it after the old Gardner Drug Store which used to serve up delicious sodas & milkshakes back in the day.

Ella Mae's Light Ale

Light Ale

Traditional German Malts and Hops alongside Norweigen 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.

Strong Boy

IPA

This one is packed full of classic American hops: Chinook, Columbus, Centennial, and Simcoe. It's our strongest IPA yet so we named it after the Strongman from Millville, Paul Conrad, who's feats of strength earned him the title of "The South's Strongest Boy."

Pollywog Pear

Cider

A crisp apple cider with a pop of Pear.

We named this cider after a motorboat that called St. Andrews Bay home way back in 1908. The Panama City Pilot Newspaper used to print a weekly list of all of the new-fangled motorboats putting their way around St. Andrews Bay. 

The boat named Pollywog was 18 feet long, owned by a local businessman named W.W. Green, and powered by a heavy-duty Regal gasoline engine.

Old Town Rye

Pale Ale

This hoppy ale features plenty of rye malts that give it unique toasted and peppery notes and touch of nuttiness. Cascade hops give it a fruity nose that balances all those rye flavors very nicely. We named this beer Old Town, which was how folks referred to the area we know today as "Beach Drive" in between historic downtown and St. Andrews.

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!
