We are very excited to announce that after 8 years of being just a production facility, and a tiny one at that, we are moving, expanding and opening a tasting room!

Tour night
Tour night

We are purchasing a historic house built in 1912 to use as a tasting room/Belgian beer bar downstairs, and upstairs, we will have two guest rooms available for a night or a week in Downtown Tarpon Springs, Florida. One mile from the shores of the Gulf of Mexico and the famous Sponge Docks. Tarpon Springs is also home to a number of world class Greek restaurants.

On the brewery side, we're going from our current 1200sf to 2000sf, which doesn't sound large but after working in 1200sf for 8 years...2000sf is sprawling! We are adding two foeders, two more 18bbl fermenters and adding a few parts and pieces to help with the bottling process.

The showpiece will be the tasting room!

Once completed, it will be a replica of an old world Belgian beer bar. Antique bar. Uniformed staff. Proper glassware. Lots of small tables. Menu of charcuterie. All candle lighting on Friday and Saturday nights. Guest taps will include the best and brightest from Belgium and France along with an extensive bottle list and bottle cellar stocked with Shelton Brothers Importing's finest.

Risks and challenges

Our projected opening date is Oct 15, 2015. As with any construction project, that means anywhere between Oct 15 and whenever. We will send your thank you gifts in August but keep in mind the tasting room and brewery may not open on time. We'll do our best to give updates, pictures and maybe a few construction videos along the way.
