Saint Petersburg- Yesterday Florida got one step closer to adding another microbrewery to its roll.
On May 21st of this year, the Saint Petersburg Brewing Company had posted that they secured financing from the Small Business Administration to help fund their brewery in Saint Petersburg. Yesterday, owner Tom Williams posted: “Our financing is closed our financing this afternoon and look forward to transforming our building to brewery!”
Saint Petersburg Brewing has had their Saint Pete Orange Wheat and Pinellas Pale Ale in the market, but those beers have been contract brewed out of state at Maryland’s Dog Brewing Company. Williams hopes to make these beers locally in Pinellas County. This financing now brings the brewery one step closer to opening, which Williams projects will happen in October of 2013.
