Niceville will get its own nano-brewery and taproom in early 2016.
“Cool tap room, great energy, and nice people bringing great craft beer to Niceville and the greater Emerald Coast,” Co-owner Tim McCool said when asked what he wants people to say about 3rd Planet.
Growlers as well as a special craft beer tap room menu and wine from 120 A Modern Bistro will be offered. The taproom will have TVs, games and more.
The brewery plans to have 12 beers on tap: six of their own recipes and six craft beers from other Panhandle breweries.
3rd Planet’s own offerings will include a brown ale, a Hefeweizen (“Bluewater Hefeweizen”), a pale ale (“Panhandle Pale Ale”), a cream ale and a dry hopped pale ale.
They’ll also offer two of their award winning brews. The 3rd Planet Chocolate Stout (now renamed the Boggy Bayou Stout) won first place in the British Ales category at the Brewfest in Fredericksburg, Va., in 2013. The brewery’s American Wheat (the name is still in the works) won the spiced herb and vegetable beer category at the Washington DC Cherry Blossom brew competition in 2014.
“If the beer wasn’t good, we wouldn’t be doing this,” McCool said.
