Beer drinkers and brewing enthusiasts across Florida’s Panhandle are seeing their dream of a local brewery come one step closer to being realized this week. 

After nearly 11 months of construction, Grayton Beer Company received nine stainless steel fermentation tanks this week at its new South Walton brewery located on Highway 98. Each 18-foot tank holds 22,000 pints of beer and, together, offer Grayton Beer Company the capacity to brew up to 150,000 bottles of beer at a time.

In addition to the new fermentation tanks, additional vessels will arrive to store and manage the hot and cold water needed to produce high quality craft beer as well as a grist case to hold the grain to be added during the brewing process.

“We have been looking forward to this day for some time now,” said Jamey Price, Grayton Beer Company’s President and Founder. “We are starting to see our dream of an independent craft brewery emerging here in South Walton.”

Grayton Beer plans to launch five new beers in the coming weeks, including the new 30A Beach Blonde Ale.

The new craft beers will be available in both bottle and draft in restaurants and bars from Pensacola to Apalachicola.

Grayton Beer Company crews worked around-the-clock this week to take delivery of nine fermenting tanks at South Walton’s first brewery. The company will brew its first batch of beer this Fall, just in time for the holiday season.
