Grayton Beer Company Opens Taproom
November 30, 2014 by SoWal Staff
Grayton Beer Company in Santa Rosa Beach has completed their new taproom! Open to the public since Nov. 21, the taproom boasts a 40-ft. bar made of recycled wood pallets and 25 taps where customers can enjoy all of Grayton’s unique brews, including specialty small-batch beers. The bar will also feature guest taps for other craft beers as well as collaboration beers between Grayton Beer Company and other local craft breweries.
“Opening a taproom at the brewery has always been part of the vision for us at Grayton Beer Company,” says Jamey Price, president of Grayton Beer Company. “We’re really excited for people to have the opportunity to come experience how we make our beer, meet the characters who brew it and then enjoy the beer itself.”
The taproom is the newest upgrade to Grayton’s 30-barrel brewhouse located at 217 Serenoa Road in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. The 30,000 sq.-ft. brewery features a brand new equipment from Allied Beverage Tank (ABT), a Markyl 125 bottles-per-minute bottling line, a state-of-the-art lab run by a Harvard Ph.D. and over 10,000 barrels of annual production capacity.
“Fortunately the demand for our beer has been so high that we’ve never stopped brewing which delayed the taproom opening,” says Price. “Finally being able to add this new element to the experience of Grayton beer is a great milestone for us.”
Taproom hours will vary until January, and updates can be found at www.GraytonBeer.com or the brewery’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Stay tuned for the Taproom's Grand Opening event to be announced in coming weeks.
