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!

Jack Mashburn's

Scottish Ale

Mashburn's is our take on a Scottish Ale. Its slightly caramelized flavor profile with a grainy dry finish is inspired by the pub-style session ales measured by schillings in Scotland.

Jack Mashburn was a beloved citizen of our community. At the age of 22, Mr. Mashburn was elected to the Florida House and he helped create the first park for black beachgoers in the South. This progression led by Mr. Mashburn was so controversial he lost his seat in the Florida House for it. He championed preservation around Econfina Creek. Later in life, he was known to drop off magnolia flowers at friends' houses and businesses around the community. His love for this community clearly never stopped. Jack Mashburn passed away in 2017.

Belle Booth

Blonde Ale

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!

SeaLab Citiva


Our newest "experimental" batch of this IPA series is dry-hopped with Citiva Hops, giving it strong aromas of stone fruit and a hint of lemon & lime on the finish. Since these IPAs are our "experiments," 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.

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!

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.

Island Hopper


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."

Steele's IPA


West coast style IPA for the hop-heads! Brewed with a variety of malts and a combination of Columbus, Chinook, Citra, and Simcoe hops, Steele's starts off with caramel malt a hints of cedar and then careens into a mesh of piney, citrusy, ever so slightly minty bitterness through a lasting finish.

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


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.

Pollywog Dark Fruit


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!

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!
