Pensacola Bay Brewery

What: Brewery Tour; Where: Downtown Pensacola; When: Open M-Thurs 11am-8pm, F-Sat 11am-10pm; Sun 12-6pm; Cost: Free tastings, Cream Soda, Rootbeer and Beer for purchase

When you think of the Pensacola Bay Brewery, throwing your kids in the car and heading down there for a visit might not be the first thing you would do.  But we did exactly that the other day and had a blast!  I have been wanting to stop by the Pensacola Bay Brewery since I heard it opened but haven’t been able to.  When we met our friends at Dolce, I realized that the brewery is located right next door so we walked over after our gelato date.  When we walked in with three children, they didn’t blink an eye (of course it was only 11am…we weren’t visiting at 8 o’clock at night!)!

The little ones were able to try their Cannonball Rootbeer and they also have Doubloon Cream Soda.

I asked if children were welcome (as my child sat next to me!) to visit and tour.  They said absolutely.  The Pensacola Bay Brewery has tours scheduled every Saturday afternoon on the hour.  They also set up group tours in advance.  We are advocates of factory tours and learning how things are made so I will probably bring my school aged son back one weekend.

Things to Know Before You Go:

  • They only take cash or check but do have an ATM on site.
  • If I visit with the family again, I will visit during their early afternoon hours when it isn’t very crowded. 
  • If you want to tour, be sure to call ahead to confirm they are doing tours that day.  Tours are sometimes cancelled due to where they are in the brewing process.
