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!

The Hero

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!

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.

Gardner's Strawberry Mango Milkshake IPA


This silky smooth hazy IPA is packed with plenty of lactose plus strawberry and mango purees for a big creamy mouthfeel and tons of fruity 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.

Pretty Bayou

Cream Ale

Don't let the "cream" in the name throw you off. Pretty Bayou is a very mild, pale, light-bodied, refreshing ale with Pilsner malts for the crisp, clean taste.

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!

McKenzie's Milk 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.

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

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!
