INSPIRATION

 

“While the staff of the Gainesville Ice House was pumping water and creating ice to cool off the Floridan summers, two imaginative Oxford professors, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis*, were building a beautiful friendship over delicious brews at a local Oxford pub. Through this friendship, vivid and whimsical worlds were put into print for the enjoyment of generations to come. English literature has described “the pub”, or public house, as the heart of England. Inspired by the beer halls and public houses of Europe where such creativity developed, Cypress & Grove Brewing Company has created a space (with lots of heart) for Gainesvillians. We hope that you visit our public house/pub - enjoy some good brews, meet with friends and family, share thoughtful musings and conversations, collaborate creatively with your colleagues and companions, and see what comes of it!”
