Swamp Head Brewery - 13 Beers for 13 Years event

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.
