Recently we took the Florida Beer News crew to Tallahassee to talk to Ryan LaPete, the owner and head brewer of Deep Brewing Company. We had a great conversation about how Deep had adjusted to the pandemic, what was coming from the brewery in the future, insights on Deep’s new hard seltzer (dubbed “Deep Water”), and more.
Black Friday is rolling around once again, and 2020 is no different. For many beer enthusiasts, Black Friday is the day to forget that Anheuser-Busch InBev owns Goose Island Brewing as they release a few bottles of barrel-aged stout that draw attention away from Goose Island’s strategy the rest of the year – namely releasing forgettable beers on repeated BOGOs and working to take cooler and shelf space away from independent craft breweries.
Tallahassee’s DEEP Brewing Company is marking three years anchoring Florida’s Capitol craft beer scene with four beers released in bottles or cans and one day with a humungous list of draft exclusives, all over Labor Day weekend.
Florida beer has grown by leaps and bounds for several years now, with the state’s haymaker breweries making names for themselves in the last ten years. While ten years of monumental growth in craft beer has been a boon to the state and its beer scene, new breweries are working to make names for themselves all the time. Many breweries are winning awards, accolades, and respect ever day, but some manage to fly under the radar and not get the accolades they deserve. In the last two years, so many breweries have come up in the Sunshine State and some of them are making good beer, some are doing good business locally, and some manage to find their niche and pour liquid gold.
Press Release: DEEP Brewing Company is celebrating one year of growth and successful operation after officially opening the doors on August 28, 2016. Since that date, Deep Brewing has exceeded all growth expectations… releasing over 120 beers, nearly quintupling production capacity, and entered in to local distribution nearly one year ahead of schedule. As we dive head first into the future, come join us for a beer-filled weekend!
