Fort Walton Brewing Company | Join us as we build the craft beer scene on the Emerald Coast one brew at a time!
Family, Community, Craft Beer!
Hello! We are Jim and Deborah Lewis, founders of Fort Walton Brewing Company. We are Fort Walton’s first true Nano Brewery as we utilize a 2 BBL Electric Brewing System. Our goal is 2 fold. First, to bring our small batch, big flavor brews to our friends and neighbors in the area, and Second, to help aspiring brewers get their feet wet on our system and bring their beers to the public in our taproom. Like a incubator! We want to help the craft beer scene in the Florida Panhandle explode and help new breweries grow their ideas and hopefully have more breweries here in the future benefiting all craft beer fans. Our brewing focus will be on hand crafted, artisanal, and seasonal beers. We want something new on tap every time you visit! We will do a number of things to support local Non Profits and our Local Military. Being a Navy Veteran and a member of this great community since 1987, we love this area and it shows in our enthusiasm. You can help us and be a part of this great little jewel for Fort Walton Beach!
We already have our brewing systems and building, we are hoping to have the Taproom opened mid March to early April. We don’t want our taproom to be about our beer but about community in appreciation of good beer everywhere! Licensing has started and we should be able to serve our own beers as soon as May / June 2018. Just have to wait for TTB Approval! We are looking to raise $5000 for upgrades in the taproom and brew house. Below is a summary of projects the funds will go to.
- Beer Garden furniture
- Upgrade our draft system
- Taproom and Beer Garden Lighting
- Taproom Flooring
- Serving Bar
- Glassware (we plan on serving in the correct style glass at the taproom!)
- Other upgrades to Taproom
We have lots more ideas and fun stuff depending on fund raising totals. Anything will help, and if we raise more you can have a say in what we do to upgrade your experience at our brewery!
Our perk package is something for anyone and everyone! Lots of great packages and some limited offers also. You are helping us bring this to Fort Walton and we want to make sure we show you how much we appreciate and value your trust and enthusiasm to see us open!
Other Ways You Can Help
We understand that not everyone is in a position to donate their money to our campaign. We do ask everyone to spend a minute to share our campaign with as many others as possible so that we can spread the word about the great things we are doing at Fort Walton Brewing Company.
Thank you so much for all your support!
Cheers! Jim & Deb.
