Apalachicola’s craft brewery announced this morning, Tuesday, April 13th, that the brewery would be opening a brewery on Gaines Street in Tallahassee – in the spot previously occupied by SOF Brewing and Grasslands Brewing.

DRUM ROLL PLEASE… 🥁
We couldn’t be more excited to announce that OCBC is spreading its roots to TALLAHASSEE, FL!! We will be opening the doors to our second brewery + taproom and proudly serving our tasty brews to the amazing TLH community starting early fall of 2021! Go follow @ocbc_tallahassee to stay in the know and see all the behind the scenes to come!
We hope you’re ready Tallahassee.. because we know we are!
The Tallahassee Democrat released an article in tandem with the brewery’s post, offering a few more details on Oyster City Brewing’s plans and why they chose the Gaines Street spot in Tallahassee for their second facility:
“Tallahassee has such a strong and cohesive craft beer community that pushes the limits with constant focus on quality and innovation,” Mathis wrote in an email.
“Obviously the fact that it already has brewing equipment located inside the facility is a giant plus. Everything is set up to get started as soon as we update a few pieces here and there and get our licensing processed,” Mathis said.
“Ample parking and a great location for a diverse crowd of people to enjoy a little bit of the coast brought to Tallahassee is another big positive. I won’t give too much away, but we want everyone to feel like they’re parked in a serene space that conveys what the Apalachicola lifestyle and Oyster City is all about!”
Florida Beer News will update Oyster City’s progress as the brewery gets farther along on the path to opening “Oyster City North.”
About Oyster City Brewing
The Oyster City Brewing Company was conceived in 2012 on the barstools of The Tap Room in Apalachicola with one frequently asked question: “What’s your local beer?”
Committed to thorough, practical research, we sampled hundreds of pints of craft beer from all over the state and region. Tough work for sure, but slowly it began to dawn on us, “We might could pull it off.”
Eventually, we put together a plan and transformed an old dive bar into a little brewery and got to work, guided by the mission to improve our beer with every batch. To this day, we still start each morning committed to making our little slice of coastal paradise proud. Cheers!
