Mississippi is home to a large number of craft breweries that focus on making smaller batches of beer with high-quality ingredients. Throughout the state, you can find small breweries with traditional beers like ales and lagers as well as some fun flavors. Some only offer beer on tap and growlers to take home while others already have distribution plans in place and sell cans or bottles throughout the state or region.

The two bought a historic building within downtown Gulfport in December 2013 and turned it into their brewing company with fresh and local ingredients. This brewery specializes in their Gulf Sour Series which is rotational and seasonal. It is their take on sour beers featuring over-the-top fruity flavors, a bit of tartness, and a bit of sweet. Some that you may find on tap or in cans include Lil’ Miss Sour Tangerine Sour, Lil’ Smack, Freemason Golden Ale, Curlew’s Coconut Porter, Osiris Gulf IPA, Guava Jelly Sour Ale, and H90 Surf Side Pineapple Wheat. There are always 12 beers on tap. The taproom has 8,000 square feet in a historic building and is the perfect place for learning about and sampling handcrafted beers and to listen to music.
