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.
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!
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, despite facing racial inequality both on and off the force. We brew this one in February in honor of Black History month and the contribution Officer Wilson made to the history of Panama City.
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!
To celebrate the 114th anniversary of Panama City's official incorporation, we brewed a very special ale inspired by a recipe we found in an old confederate recipe book dating back to the 1800's. This ale features real ginger and molasses. It's crisp and refreshing with a nice touch of spice.
We named this beer after G.M. West, who made countless contributions to our town in the early 1900's, most notably he was a major influence on naming it Panama City. Click here to hear the story.
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
We infused this American wheat ale with Hibiscus tea and Mango puree to create this tart, fruity, floral, totally unique brew that locals absolutely love!
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.
15 pounds of local wildflower honey goes into each batch of this German-style ale. It's light, slightly floral, and super easy-drinking.
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!
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."
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."
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 milk stout 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.
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.
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!
This medium bodied American lager is clean & refreshing, showcasing a grainy-sweet corn flavor for a moderately rich taste with a creamy mouthfeel. We named our new American Lager after local coach and WWII hero Tommy Oliver. He grew up in this town and played football at Bay High School. After playing in college too, Tommy came back to his hometown to coach. Coach Oliver was a true patriot, at 34 years old with a wife and two children at home, he answered his country’s call to defend freedom in WWII. He fought bravely but sadly was killed in battle by a Japanese sniper while giving medical aid to one of his fellow Marines. Since 1945, Bay High's Tommy Oliver Stadium has honored the memory of Bay County’s "All-American Boy" and every Bay County High School graduate who died in service to our country in WWII.
Light ale brewed with papaya berry tea for subtle fruity flavors and a bright purple color to celebrate FLluxe Art Festival in downtown Panama City!
We stock old-fashioned soda made with real cane sugar, none of that corn syrup stuff! The menu varies based on what our vendors can supply us with each week.
Freshly pureed watermelons, strained until the pulp is gone and it's just straight watermelon juice!
Classic, refreshing, and always fresh squeezed!
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!
