Panhandle people are some of the fiercest folks you’ll ever meet. They’ve got strong backs, salty tongues & Big hearts. If Florida’s “forgotten coast” has been left alone, it’s only because they’ve been hell-bent on protecting it for so long. It’s in celebration of this way of life, the fierce love that inspires it & the fighting spirit that sustains it that we started Barleybrine — three days of gulf oysters & craft beer benefitting our neighbors affected by Hurricane Michael through our partners at the Gulf Seafood Foundation.
Barleybrine will feature a variety of special events — spread out over three days in the colonial-era seaport of Pensacola, Florida. For details on individual events, click on the thumbnails below.
We’ll be pouring dozens of beers from some of the country’s best craft breweries at our grand tasting. Expect a full list of participating breweries in March of 2019.
Barleybrine wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our partners & friends. If you see them, please thank them for not being shellfish. If the were, we’d have to eat them.
Barleybrine will play out in the picturesque, colonial-era seaport of Pensacola, Florida. The city, first settled by the Spanish in 1559, is only 15 minutes from the sugar-white beaches & turquoise water of the Gulf of Mexico & just a three-hour drive from New Orleans.
