“We’re looking forward to Chapter 2 of Swamp Head’s story!” – Luke

We have broken ground on our new 13,000 sq. ft. facility and tasting room that will be located at 3650 SW 42nd Ave, Gainesville, FL. Scherer Construction of Gainesville is managing our ground-up design-build project.

The groundbreaking of our new brewery and tasting room marks the beginning of the new chapter in our story that will feature an increased production area and an expansion of our tasting room, “The Wetlands.”

With the expansion, we will be able to more than triple our beer production, allowing for more packaged products, including cans. A new four-vessel 30-barrel (930 gallons) brew system and all associated tanks are currently being constructed in Oregon and will be installed at the new location. The new equipment will triple the size of each of our brews on our current two-vessel 10-barrel (310 gallons) brew system. With this expansion and all future expansions, all of Swamp Head’s tanks and brew system will be sourced in the U.S.A.

The new tasting room, “The Wetlands,” will grow in size and have significant improvements from the current location, featuring a larger bar, more taps, more bathrooms, outside seating and a growler filling station separate from the main bar.

Swamp Head will continue operation at its current location at 3140 SW 42nd Ave until the new facility is complete; announcements will be made when our new location is open for business.

      Hey Mike, we’re hoping to be open at the new location sometime before the end of the year. We’ll be posting updates on Facebook, Twitter and here on our website as things progress. Cheers!
