Frequently Asked Questions:
Where did the name come from?
We stumbled across the name when looking through old albums. My dad came across an old Simon and Garfunkle song called “Bridge over Troubled Waters”, and he sent it to me with a bunch of other brewery names. It was probably about the 200th name we considered. I was looking for a name that had a Florida or nautical feel to it without being gimmicky. I also thought it went well in juxtaposition to Safety Harbor, the town we are in. Finally I liked that alcohol of any sort has always had a sinful connotation to it and it plays well off of manufacturing beer. So while the Simon and Garfunkle song has no special meaning to me (although it is a great song!), that is how the name came about.
Do you distribute your beer?
Not yet! But if you’re interested shoot us an email and we will let you know if/when we do.
Do you do growler fills?
Yes! We fill any standard size growler. We have a Crowler machine and offer 32oz Crowlers to go (A crowler is a can growler – it is a one time use can that we seal on site. The cans are recyclable and perfect for bringing to outdoor events where alcohol is allowed as they do not break like glass).
Are dogs allowed in your taproom?
Yes – as long as they are on a leash and well behaved. We love dogs and often bring our own in, but we do reserve the right to ask dogs that are barking or otherwise causing a disturbance to leave.
Are kids allowed in your taproom?
Yes – as long as the kids are well behaved. We are primarily an environment for adults and don’t have a huge space or lots of kids activities, but they are allowed, we just ask for some common sense parenting for everyone’s benefit. We do suggest bringing kids earlier in the day if you plan on visiting with them, and we do offer Crowlers to go if you’d like to take some of our beer home with you to enjoy while the kiddos sleep.
Do you plan on making X type of beer?
We plan on making a whole bunch of different beers – and rotating through things. There’s really no style that we DONT plan to make, but when that will be, I don’t know exactly. We do plan to do some barrel aging just as soon as we can get up and running!
