About First Magnitude Brewing Company

In March 2012, four friends came together with the concept of opening a brewery in our hometown of Gainesville. We all had great jobs and young kids, so the idea of changing our lives and opening a brewery was truly a leap of faith. As we discussed our reasons for going into the beer business, we realized that each of us offers different perspective and unique experience but that we all want the same thing: make excellent beer, build awareness and appreciation of Florida’s springs, have a great space for people to come and enjoy a pint, be an exceptional place to work, and be a big part of our local community. These ideas are what we bring to the table (and taps) at First Magnitude. This is the reason why we’re here – we hope you’ll join us in our vision and passion for great beer and great community.
