If you’re thirsty for some really awesome beer, and you’re in the Eastpoint, Florida area, get over to Eastpoint Beer Company. The owners invite everyone to, “Come to enjoy a brew with a view!” This small craft brewery located right on The Apalachicola Bay has a very big personality. 

Inside is really casual with an impressive industrial style decor. Everything is re-purposed, a nod to today’s trend of finding new ways to use old things. The tables are made from reclaimed wood which also covers part of the walls. Vintage fishing memorabilia adds a Floridian feel. So while you enjoy your brewski, you can glance around and enjoy the decor. 

Eastpoint Beer Company has some of the tastiest IPAs on tap. Several brews are served by the extremely friendly staff. If they have the Golden Galaxy NEIPA when you get there, order it for sure! It really rocks and is brewed with Galaxy, Citra and El Dorado hops. This brew sells out every time and is extremely popular for the special, sought-after hops that are locally sourced. If that isn’t available, there are others to try. Their refreshing Eastpoint Blonde is so delicious and is a house exclusive, another must-taste. Craving something richer and deeper? The Dark Overlord Imperial Coffee Stout will not disappoint.

If you aren’t sure what to order, get a flight that includes four-ounce brew pours. This is a really cool way to taste something new, experiment with multiple beers, and score the perfect flavor for you. If you get the flight, it’s a good idea to take notes of which ones you like the best to remember for the next time you visit. You will because this experience is so unique you’ll want to come back again.

Beer, not your thing? No worries. There are other beverages to satisfy your thirst. How about a glass of wine? They will pour you a chilled glass of Pinot, Chardonnay, White Zinfindel, reds, and other vino favorites. Ask your server for a taste before you commit. They’re happy to give you a sample. Pretty cool, right?

You can also grab a great slice to enjoy with your beverage. The Pizza Boat, part of the Eastpoint Beer Company serves up the tastiest pizza in Eastpoint.  Enjoy a few hot slices with your ice-cold beer or take home a 16-inch pie to share with your family later. You can order online during certain hours that are listed on the website. Ask about the daily deals. The Eastpoint Special, a 16-inch pizza with two toppings is the best deal!

Did we mention that Eastpoint Beer Company welcomes dogs, too? Yes, they do! Bring your four-legged best friend, to the exclusive dog-friendly tasting room with both indoor and outdoor seating areas. Stop by to meet Jack the resident chocolate lab. He loves to meet new friends. While there, treat your pup to our exclusive “Hair of the Dog” beer. Dog lovers will appreciate the Dog Bar, an area inside devoted just for your furry friend to lap up some water. You can’t miss it. Look for the barkin’ good vintage fire hydrants. Keep in mind, they are for show only. Kindly take your doggie and all fire hydrant business outside. 

Special events add a special touch to this pub by the ocean. If you hit your visit on the right day, you will enjoy trivia nights, open mic nights, live music, and special fundraising events that occur regularly here. They have fun and really entertaining Eastpoint Beer sliding championship is a have to, “see it to believe it” event.
