What began as Seven Hills Brewing in Panama City Beach expanded into Salty Oak Brewing Co. after the tragedy that was Hurricane Michael in 2018. Although their name changed, their roots are the same. Their mission is to “Brew, serve, and drink good beer” and we have to agree with that! Since the expansion, they now have a taproom with 16 guest taps and a small batch brewing facility with six of its own in-house taps. They also offer four cold brew coffee taps from Black Rifle Coffee, in addition to coffee grounds, whole beans, and rounds.
Grayton Beer has been a staple across South Walton since 2011 and started out with only two beers – an IPA and a Pale Ale. They now offer seven house-brewed beers on tap, and you can even purchase some of their beers at local stores along the Gulf Coast. Their hope is that all of their beers, crafted with the finest ingredeints, put you in a Gulf Coast state of mind. You’re most likely familiar with their 30A Beach Blonde Ale, touted as “the perfect beach beer.” It’s what put them on the grid, but they hope it transports you to a feeling of being off of it.
The veteran-owned and operated Props Brewery in Fort Walton Beach is on a mission to “brew beer, drink beer, and have fun doing it.” They offer 24 beers in their inventory, including a blonde ale, American brown ale, and a porter. There are even seasonal beers like a Pumpkin Bomb American Ale, Strawberry Blonde Bomber Ale, and a Jovie Ale Winter Ale, perfect for the Christmas season. There are two Props locations in Fort Walton Beach: a brewery & grill and a brewery & taproom. Fortunately, neither are too far away from your condo rental in Fort Walton Beach!
This micro-brewery is new to the Pensacola brewery scene, but that doesn’t mean you should pass on by. In addition to the tap room, they also offer a wine lounge and large brew house with games and a TV to enjoy with friends. With 23 taps of Gulf Coast Brewery beer and an extensive wine list, you’ll want to make yourself comfortable and enjoy your time here. They also have a full walk-in humidor with a variety of cigarts to choose from including 708s, Cigar Factory, and Oscar cigars. Enjoy weekly specials like 25% off growler refills on Monday, happy hour from 4-6 Monday-Thursday, and $2 house wine from 6-9 PM on Tuesdays.
