A brewery that opened Friday night off State Road 87 has been in the works – in one way or another – since 2015.
The St. Michael’s Brewery announced its soft opening quietly Oct. 8, but a line had still formed outside when the doors opened the next day.
“It was extremely busy, well-received,” said Michael Bares, who co-owns the brewery with his wife, Paula.
They were slammed Friday and Saturday and steady Sunday, he said.
They opened with four house beers on tap, as well as some guest beers from other breweries in Niceville and Destin.
