About Escape Brewing Company
The journey of Escape Brewing Company began many years ago with a brew kit and a passion for craft beer. What started off as a hobby, quickly became an obsession for making beer.
Our Founders, John McGregor and Matt Thompson, set their sites on opening a brewery in the area they call home, Trinity, FL. Just a short 35 minute drive north from Tampa you is where you will find Escape Brewing Company has laid its roots.
In 2014 Escape Brewing Company opened its doors as a small craft brewery. It started off brewing on a 3BBL Electric Brewhouse, (4) 3BBL Fermentation Vessels, (1) 3BBL Brite Tank, and a handful of Escape Beers on tap in a 1,200 sq/ft Taproom and Brewery.
Over the next couple of years, Escape will add several more beers to the tap list, won a couple of medals for their IPAs, Sours and Desserts Stouts at the Best Florida Beer Competition, took home a Silver Medal at GABF and slowly added a few more fermentation vessels to keep up with demand. Escape could not have done this without hiring some awesome employees to help them grow and continue to meet some amazing people in their community.
Fast forward to late 2016, Escape Brewing Company expands the Taproom and Brewery to 2,400 sq/ft, adds a 3,000 sq/ft warehouse a few miles away for offsite storage and purchases a 10BBL Brewhouse with additional capacity to keep up with the demand for the Taproom and Distribution.
Escape Brewing Company now has the capacity to produce just over 1,800+ BBLs per year in a 2,400 sq/ft Taproom and Brewery. We pump out a lot of beer in a tiny space. It’s takes a lot of hard work and dedication from our team to be able to produce high quality Ales and Lagers out of a tiny space with lots of challenges but our team grinds it out each day because it is what they love to do. Make Beer.
Controlling growth has allowed Escape Brewing Company to continue to make the beers they like to drink without sacrificing creativity and quality. Escape continues to grow the brand organically to ensure they remain focused on why they started brewing beer in the first place: To be creative, challenge the status quo and to brew full flavored, well balanced Ales & Lagers.
Escape Brewing Company was founded on the principles of creating a brewery that is embraced and valued by their community, committed to their customers, all while using the finest and best ingredients possible, and to have the passion and drive of brewing beer they are proud of.
Lots of blood, sweat and tears have been poured into Escape Brewing Company. The crazy dream of opening and running a brewery is alive and well.
