MANY GREAT STORIES BEGIN WITH A BEER
Pontoon Brewing was founded by a group of longtime friends and home brewers who are passionate about developing fun and excited beers for the Pontoon Lifestyle. We all shared a passion for craft beer, and home brewing together on the weekends quickly became something we always looked forward to. Following long discussions about attempting our dreams we decided to share our passion and start Pontoon Brewing Company in 2014. The “Pontoon Lifestyle” is the idea of escaping the daily stresses and relaxing on a pontoon boat. For those unfamiliar, a Pontoon boat is commonly known as a slow moving party platform; it can’t go far and can’t go fast so might as well drink.
For the first couple of years, we'd been contract brewing with some awesome friends in the local craft scene. One thing led to another and our team grew, our families grew, and in late 2016 we broke ground on our own brick-and-mortar facility where we could brew our hearts out. We opened our doors for the first time in December 2017, welcoming in the next era of our grassroots saga.
Trying to stand out in a world full of craft beer, we have decided to focus on being as welcoming and approachable to all parties, whether you are a craft beer expert, or someone new to beer, we have styles, partnerships and activities for all walks of life. We are proud of our diversity in our taproom and are always looking for way to bring in new faces and keep them in our circle by always working to be a safe and fun place to retreat to. Our staff and the environment is something we are always looking to improve, expand upon and continue to be one of the best work environments we can operate in. It is hard to innovate in a sea of craft beer, but our point of pride is that our actions will be something that people want to be around and while you're here, our quality beer and other beverages will keep you coming back! We will always push the boundaries, whether it's about craft beer, creating new and fun ways to interact with our patrons and fans, or make a mark in our community!
