The area’s latest craft brewery opens its doors Thursday afternoon in downtown Pensacola, bringing a new taste to the craft beer scene.
The Gulf Coast Brewery is located at 500 East Heinberg Street, behind McGuire’s Irish Pub.
The new brewery is centered around a large taproom and wrap-around bar and will eventually feature dozens of types of beer on tap. The brewery says while they work to brew their first batches of craft beer in-house, several mainstay and local beers will be offered.
Other features of the new brewery include a large walk-in humidor cigar room, a wine lounge and a large cigar lounge. Visitors can also look forward to an outdoor seating area and patio, brewery tours and a game area in the brewery.
The taproom’s hours are Monday-Sunday, from 11 a.m. to midnight. Custom growlers are also available to purchase and fill with your favorite beer.
“You can hang out with friends, clients, have a cigar or have a beer,” says manager Carrie Young. “It’s a wonderful place for just relaxing or hanging out. It’s absolutely beautiful.”
The Gulf Coast Brewery is the third brewery to open in Pensacola, and is just the latest along the Gulf Coast.
