Tallahassee is well on its way to becoming the next in a line of strong brewing scenes in the state of Florida. To that end, future brewery Canopy Roads Brewing signed a lease and will get a location in the capitol city, coming soon.
From Canopy Roads Brewing:
Canopy Roads Brewing announces its lease signing with the Centre of Tallahassee (formerly the Tallahassee Mall). CRB will set up shop in a 5500’ space in the heart of the Centre’s Music Alley and will be flanked by The Pavilion (the Centre’s arena), Dreamland BBQ and the Urban Food Market (an Italian food experience). An early August opening is anticipated for The Taproom at CRB.
CRB will initially open as a craft beer bar while awaiting various permits. The Taproom at CRB will feature great craft beers from across the state of Florida (and beyond) and generate an awareness of the CRB brand and location. The Taproom at CRB will be an inviting spot for a pint and, once the brew house is functional, will offer a complete sensory brew experience.
The CRB brew house should be operational between late 2016 and early 2017 (depending upon our friends in federal government). CRB will operate a 2.5 barrel pilot system initially and eventually brew on a 15 barrel system. The brew house will be open air…no walls. Patrons will see, smell, hear, feel and, of course, taste the total beer experience.
Congrats to Canopy Roads on this first step into a wide world.
