Swamp Head is Moving!November 6, 2013
Well, 3140 SW 42nd Way, it’s been a good run. But, we’re moving on.
As all good things must come to an end, so will our cozy little brewery and tasting room at the back of a warehouse complex in Southwest Gainesville. But, not for a year or so.
Have no fear, we’ll still be here.
We’ll be just down the road. We’ve spent countless hours scouring Gainesville and its surrounding areas for the perfect spot to put our brewery, which turned out to be somewhat of a daunting task. We had to make sure that the most important people in the world (you) could still easily access the brewery to come by and have a beer. We love seeing all of you guys and gals.
We would also need enough space to grow. We are currently bursting at the seams of our 6,600 sq. ft. of warehouse and would like to continue to increase our capacity, hire more people and brew more beer. At our new facility we would also like to do some packaging, which will take even more space. (Yes, this means eventual canning.)
We had to find something in an area of Gainesville that is conducive for a quick drive to the brewery, but still allowed enough space for us to grow for a little while. We have always been happy with our quiet little location on the Southwest side of town, so we figured…
If it Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It
We finally found a beautiful little piece of property, just down the road from our current brewery. It is right next to Alley Katz bowling alley (3705 SW 42nd Ave, Gainesville, FL 32608), at the end of the cul-de-sac.
We will be working with Scherer Construction, CHW, and a few others over the next year to build a 13,300 sq. ft. warehouse that will be our new home for the foreseeable future. We will finally have ample parking, a larger tasting room and plenty of room to grow as needed. The project is currently in design phase and should be breaking ground early next year. We are slated to be open at the new location around September of 2014. We can’t be more excited to announce this and look forward to giving you updates as they come in.
Even though Swamp Head is moving, everything with our brewery and at our tasting room, The Wetlands, will be business as usual until we have moved. Please continue to come in, hang out, have a beer and enjoy our last year at this location with us!
To all of our friends around Florida: A huge thank you for all of the love and support that has enabled us to get where we are. We couldn’t do it without you. Cheers!
