Nivol Brewery in Panama City Beach may be the holy grail of craft brewing in Florida.
It all started when three regular Joes pined over the perfect craft beer, arguing over what it should taste like, how to sell it, and how to even make it in the first place.
Their long debate resulted in a fantastic selection of craft beer in the Florida Panhandle – and one of the best Panama City Beach attractions. Now, you can explore the Nivol Brewery and experience these unique brews for yourself. It is easily one of the best things to do for couples and adults on vacation at our Panama City vacation rentals.
Two Sides to One Crafted Coin
There are two main activities you can take part in at the Nivol Brewery: ordering a drink at the bar and taking a tour of the distillery.
Upon walking in, you come across a bar top and a massive list of the current craft beer list on the back wall. The craft beers are written in chalk and you may see many scratch-outs as the menu changes almost daily.
But the best bet is to start your hoppy journey with the bartender – they will be able to give you suggestions based on type and flavor of brew and current seasonal picks. Ask to a sample a few before making your decision.
The brewery tour at Nivol is one of the best group activities in the area. Visitors can explore the brewing process, and how three regular guys with a love for craft beer turned this passion into a full-time business.
Exploring the state-of-the-art facility is an informative and fun experience, giving you unique insight into each sip. Next time you go for a pint, you’ll appreciate it, even more, understanding the time and energy that goes into making craft beer. And, of course, free samples are served at the end of the tour.
