Grayton Beer Company

Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459
Over the last three decades, craft beer in the United States has consistently battled for market share, but since its fledgling beginnings in the mid-1970s, craft beer has gained more than 25% of sales in the brewing industry. The Grayton Beer Company takes its share of the profits by creating beers that defy expectations since there is typically much more character and flavor in craft beers compared to those brewed commercially on a massive scale.
The Grayton Beer Company 30A offers several types of beers which are dedicated to different tastes. In fact, the knowledgeable brewers excel at presenting a constant rotation of seasonal beers as well as beers that raise profits for charities and organizations. The daily, on-the-menu roster of beers includes a Blonde Ale perfect for the beach, a Belgian-style Weissbier which showcases that wonderful tell-tale tartness, and the beer named Salt of the Gulf is an exemplary rendition of the Gose style of beer which originated in Goslar, Germany. The darker beers include the 1890 Founder’s Ale, the Staff Pale Ale and the Fish Whistle IPA. The 1890 Founder’s Ale is a copper colored masterpiece which blends malty flavor through the use of American Cascade hops. The Staff Pale Ale combines hoppy flavors of pine and citrus while the IPA exudes the classic characteristics of this popular beer style; however, the IPA made here definitely shows a spicy floral edge as well!
