Webb’s City Cellar is our second tasting room and barrel aging facility adjacent to our original location. While it will specialize in mixed culture, sour and wild ales, it will share the beer garden in the middle of the two facilities. The name is an homage to Doc Webb, the founder and creator of Webb’s City, the World’s Most Unusual Drug Store which first opened in Downtown St. Petersburg in the mid 1920’s. It took up seven city blocks, and was complete with 77 departments ranging from a meat market, to a beauty salon. A hardware store to a Mermaid Show. Much like the drugstore, our Webb’s City will allow us to experiment, pursue passion projects and develop small batches while also broadening our Mead and Cider branch of the business.
The expansion and development of this project has included a separate space for a koelschip (an open fermentation vessel), an outdoor patio, balcony seating, and an upfront view of our barrel facility. Alongside our own product, we will be carrying a rotating bottle menu of packaged products from parallel breweries with similar programs. We aim to have Webb’s City Cellar open to the public early 2019.
