The long-awaited Grand Opening of Due South Brewing Company took place this past Saturday, 5/12/12. The event took place at the brewery, a massive warehouse in Boynton Beach, Florida. The brewery is not a brewpub, where you would go to have dinner as well. Due South is rather a full-scale production brewery that will be distributing its beers to retailers. That doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t go to the brewery and check out their beers. There is a tasting room for you to do just that. You can even catch a baseball game on the TV if you are so inclined.
The grand opening had hundreds of visitors sampling five different beers from Due South and a handful from guest breweries Cigar City Brewing, Tequesta Brewing and Swamphead Brewing. The offerings from Due South included Category 3 IPA, Southern Saison, Honey Vanilla Wheat, Caramel Cream Ale and Roasted Cocoa Stout. My personal favorites were the Category 3 IPA and Southern Saison. You can read a little more about my thoughts on each as well as see some other goofing around here if you are interested.
Outside, there were four food trucks to order food from, which is encouraged by the brewery. Several other bar owners and brewers were in attendance, and it’s always great to see the local beer people supporting each other. It was a fun evening for everyone and a great springboard for Due South to get their brewery and beers out to the masses.
The brewery should be found at…
