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!

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!

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.

Mrs. Jenks Lemondrop

Pale Ale

We used Lemondrop Hops to give this crisp pale ale lemony flavors and aromas. 

Back in 1907, Mrs. Jenks grew a Ponderosa lemon that weighed in at nearly 2 pounds, it even made the newspaper! We wanted to honor her achievement and name this beer after her. Jenks Avenue is named after her husband Captain George W. Jenks, a local community leader and entrepreneur.

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 peach puree and lactose (milk sugar) for a big creamy mouthfeel and that perfect amount of sweetness to balance the bitter hop flavors. It's sweet, succulent, indulgent, and strong! Gardner's packs a punch as a double IPA. We named it after the old Gardner Drug Store which used to serve up delicious sodas & milkshakes back in the day.

Wildflower Honey Kölsch

Kölsch

Strong Boy

IPA

This American IPA is packed full of classic American hops: Chinook, Columbus, Centennial, and Simcoe. Since it's our biggest and strongest IPA, 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."

Mound Avenue

Brown Ale

This is our take on an American Brown Ale featuring honey malt and chocolate malt for a slightly sweet finish and roasted rich flavors.

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.

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 Honey Apple

Cider

We added a touch of honey to this hard apple cider which gives it rich aromas and a touch of sweetness, but we don't add any other sugars so the result is a tart mouthfeel and dry finish. (psst, this one's GLUTEN-FREE)

Loconut Solider

Hazy IPA

Our newest El Weirdo "exbeeriment"  is a hazy IPA loaded with real coconut, pineapple juice, and pineapple puree! It'll have you whistling reggae tunes on our beautiful beaches. Try pairing it with some tacos from the El Weirdo Taco Truck parked behind the brewery.

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!
