Our beers. Our passion. Our story.
How many beers does it take to put three daughters through college?
Our story starts with Mike and Head Brewer (then Head Chef) Ty Weaver in a local restaurant in St Petersburg, Florida. They were working on a recipe for a craft beer battered-fish and decided to make it with their own hand crafted brews.
The guys kept brewing and brewing and one day, Mike and Ty decided to invest in a brewhouse to increase their brewing capacity for the restaurant. Once they picked out a 30-barrel system, it was time to move on from the restaurant business and begin a journ ... (continued)

Peer-to-peer instruction is an evidence-based, student-centered approach to teaching. It utilizes interactive techniques that allow students to develop skills while promoting dynamic engagement with course concepts. Some popular types of peer-to-peer learning include Think-Pair-Share, Three Before Me, World Café, Peer Review, and Peer Leading. Several studies have shown that students achieve statistically higher course grades and self-report better understanding of material and improved logic when these instruction approaches are used in the classroom ...
