Press Release: JDub’s Brewing Company is excited to announce the opening of our off-site taproom, “The Dub Shack at UTC”, which is tentatively scheduled to open the end of January.
The Dub Shack address is 8217 Tourist Center Drive, Bradenton, FL 34201, formerly a World Of Beer franchise location. The concept is similar to other breweries opening off-site taprooms, an experience that mimics the feel of the brewery itself. There will be a live video feed of brewing operations at JDub’s Brewing Company as well as similar art created by local artists on the walls. The Dub Shack at UTC will feature 40 draft lines, 20 of which devoted to JDub’s beers and the other 20 a variety of high quality craft beers made by other brewers.
JDub’s founder Jeremy Joerger, “This is something I’ve wanted to do for years. My brewery is slightly off the beaten path and this new location will allow us to show off our brand in a more populated location.”
About JDub’s Brewing
JDub’s Brewing began with a Soldier stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington, along with one of his buddies and armed with Charlie Papazian’s “The Joy of Home Brewing”, brewed his first (horrible) batch of homebrew. Jeremy “JDub” fell in love with brewing immediately. Fast forward to 2016, and JDub’s is a rapidly growing Florida craft brewery, growing daily in the areas of sales, distribution, number of employees and scope. After nearly “maxing” our production at our facility in Sarasota in 2015, we have begun brewing at “The Brew Hub” in Lakeland, FL, where we make our flagship brands. Our beloved former head brewer, Tommy, is no longer with us (although we still brew Tommy’s “Damn Good Wee Heavy” in his honor). Head Brewer Matt Tucker is now running the brewery side of operations. Despite our bustling growth, we stay committed our our core values of Quality, Innovation and Culture. We hope you enjoy looking around the website and we hope to see you at the brewery soon. Cheers!
