Any updates on if the brewery has opened? We were down in June and it was still under construction. I check Facebook, but no recent updates.

It's not open yet. I drove by yesterday and they are still working on it. The building looks really nice.

I've not spoken with Garick lately, but, I know he is getting close. He was off the island when I was last there at Christmas. He had started some test runs of the brewery to shake out some of the bugs. The last buildout was to be the kitchen and tasting room.

Possible, but, can't say. He's working hard on it daily and I've seen where he's at, but, I'm not going to bug him about it.

Is it really a restaurant or is it a distribution brewery with a tasting room? It has been a long time since my last stay there & Cafe Atlantic was a must for Sunday Brunch!

It's a brewery with a tasting room / bar and large porches on both levels. Growlers to go. The old Cafe is probably about a quarter or third of the new building. Garick kept the Cafe kitchen & is leasing that out. Bar food to be available.

They must be busy at the nude beach, working on their man buns & brewers beards. I called last night with no answer. Embaressed smiley

Got this message from them this morning



Filling up our tanks , working on getting our beer on the street . Hoping to have beer out locally by the 4th . The opening of the tasting room depends on a few outside factors that just take time unfortunately . But I WANT to say by the middle of July . Fingers crossed , big time .
Thanks for checking on us ..we appreciate it very much !

I was just on the island today! Where is the brewery? We ate lunch at Howard's Pub! Very good food and a pretty good beer selection!

Update. They are still working on the tasting room, but, the brewery is running! Beer is available around town. I know Zillie's has a couple brews. When I was in the Pub the other night, they were ready to put one of the local brews on tap as soon as something else ran out. I expect we'll have local beer available everywhere very soon.
