At the corner of Cypress & Grove there is a well. From that well life transforms.
In the beginning, our well provided the people of Gainesville with ice and the Atlantic and Seaboard Railroads ice to cool their rail cars.


Neighborhood children played in the cold pools of water from the ice plant and neighbors gathered. The tradition of community gathering, conversation, the sharing of ideas and friendship continues. Today we gather over a crisp pint of sessionable, beer brewed from the water from that very same well.


A new life grows around that well.

We are two families with a passion for brewing delicious beer and building community.
