1st Annual Billy Fred Day

Thanks to everyone that showed up today for our 1st Annual Billy Fred day. Our little brewpub was packed virtually all day! We had live music throughout the day, burger BOGOs for veterans, a blood drive and plenty of #Merica to go around. We raised quite a bit of money for Manasota Operation Troop Support and made a number of new friends.

1st Annual Billy Fred Day – June 25th

Do you know a veteran that could use a good meal? How about that old Army vet that lives down the street that doesn’t get out much or the Marine that you see at church all the time? On Billy Fred Day, bring a veteran in and when you buy one of our HUGE 1/2 pound, hand-pattied char-grilled burgers we’ll give your veteran friend a burger for free! Our Vets should be celebrated every day of the week, not just on holidays.

Our grandpa, Billy Fred Marcus, was a big influence on our lives and he died last year at the age of 93. He was truly a man’s man and a WWII Vet with 8 Bronze Stars while serving in the Pacific. Towards the end of his life we got him hooked on craft beer and session IPAs were his favorite. We’ve named one of our best beers in his honor.

Help us celebrate his birthday by feeding Vets in our community that could use a good meal. All day long on Sunday June 25th, we’ll be celebrating veterans and Billy Fred.

6 Month Anniversary – Thank You!

We just hit our 6 month anniversary and we want to say “Thank You” to everyone that has come out to support us so far. We really appreciate your business and look forward to serving you for the next 6 months and beyond.

Manatee County – A Brewery Documentary
