Swamp Head Brewery celebrates 13 years with a drive-thru anniversary set

Gainesville’s original craft brewery would usually throw a weekend bash to celebrate their anniversary. There would be special beers on tap, commemorative glassware, and faces new and old would come through the Wetlands (tasting room) to celebrate another trip around the sun. In 2021, though, that is not the case. Out of an abundance of caution during the COVID-19 pandemic, Swamp Head Brewery has decided to release their anniversary beers, and their nostalgia, in cans available in their drive-thru station.

Thirteen years is a huge milestone for us: at some point in this year we’ll have spent just as long at our current site as we did at the original Swamp Head Brewery! To celebrate our past, and do a little reminiscing along the way, our brewers are putting together an ultimate 12-pack of anniversary beers featuring six brand new beers (two of each style) inspired by well-loved Swamp Head beers of the past and the present.

While we wish we were setting up a giant 90-foot tent on our front lawn with rows and rows of tables, this year’s anniversary is going to be done a little differently in order to keep things safe and socially distanced. This year we’re bringing our anniversary to the comfort of your home with Anniversary Bundles that you can pick up right at our drive thru.

Get ready for SIX brand new beers and two limited-edition glasses in honor of 13 Years of Swamp Head, and mark your calendars because you won’t want to miss this epic Anniversary Bundle.

Bundle and beer sales begin at 10 am on Saturday, March 27th. All purchases must be picked up Saturday, 3/27 between the hours of 12-10 pm. It is highly recommended that you place your order online (link to follow) at 10 am on Saturday before driving out to the brewery in case of a sellout.
