Where are you moving?
Proof Brewing Company is relocating less than a mile down the road from its current location to 1320 South Monroe Street, near Tallahassee’s downtown district and walking distance to the beautiful Cascades Park. We will occupy the former Coca-Cola Bottling Company building, built in 1948.
What’s the history of the building?
The facility was originally built in 1948 and was previously occupied by Coca-Cola Bottling Company. The building has remained vacant for many years. This facility is 34,000 square feet and occupies an entire city block.
Why are you moving?
Proof has experienced explosive growth, doubling production each year since we started brewing in 2012. We reached capacity at our current facility years ahead of projections. This is a direct result of the amazing support from our home market, Tallahassee. This new location will allow us to continue growth of production, expand distribution, and create new jobs.
When are you moving?
Our tasting room, beer garden, and brewery production will continue normal operations until the new facility comes online. Hours of operations will remain the same at our current facility. We are expecting to have the new facility open by January 2019.
What will happen to your current location?
After 1320 South Monroe comes online, we will no longer occupy our current facility.
How much will this next phase of expansion cost?
We are expecting to invest $6,000,000 into the new facility.
What is the overall total economic impact of the expansion at the new facility?
The Tallahassee-Leon County Office of Economic Vitality (OEV) projects this will have a $23 million total economic impact to our community with a total of 102 jobs.
Will you continue to have an outdoor beer garden?
In addition to a larger indoor tasting room, the new facility will feature an outdoor covered and uncovered beer garden.
Will you be expanding hours of operation at the new facility?
Yes! We plan to add additional hours to the new tasting room.
Will you be adding additional packaged brands in cans and bottles?
Yes! With this new facility we’ll be able to expand our packaged products. La La Land, our West Coast Style IPA, will be the first new addition to our year-round offerings in 6-packs.
Will you continue to offer live music at the new location?
Yes, we will continue to book local bands and DJs and hope to expand beyond just Friday nights.
Will the new facility have food?
Yes, we will have a kitchen offering food service at the new location.
Will you have private events?
Yes, we will have a large private events space accommodating events of all sizes.
