After spending several months driving through this good ol' USofA (mostly on the back-roads), I am convinced there is no small town that can not and does not support a brewery / brewpub of its own.

True, some are just too small or too close to their closest "small" town neighbor, but most burbs and villages, when Googled, still produce at least 1 place offering brews.

Wife Persimmon and I decided to drive the "coast" route through Florida's panhandle rather than the Interstate (something we are want to do anyway) during our year-long journey across America and as a result, discovered Oyster City Brewing.
,
Oyster City...that's Apalachicola. (Bing and the Andrews Sisters sang about the city way back in the 1940's)...because...well, it's on the Gulf. And there is seafood. And oysters. So.....

10 beers on tap including a 7.5% Stout, a 8.5% Brown (it's whiskey aged brother powers in at 10%), the requisite IPA's and Pale Ales, a Blond, an Amber and a Summer ale (although this was a week before Xmas so, not sure why this was still available)

The 3 we tasted were all quite good and all very different and that bodes well for this small, downtown brewery.

The service was excellent...the company grand (a couple from Kentucky who were frequent visitors and an older fella across the water from St. George Island who drank his IPA and read)...and although it takes time for Floridianites to warm up, Lisee behind the bar eventually started to converse with a coupla of old Californiarians.

However, be prepared...it is a cash-only operation; not very handy for those of us traveling long distances and not accustomed to carry wads of green in our back pocket.

The town itself is old, small and full of character...the brews new (opened in 2012), filling and full of personality. So it you're in the vicinity or just passing through, take a moment to stop in and say "Have you got any of that heady liquid they call beer?"

They will be happy to oblige.
