Live Music

tyler.jpg

Hey, I’m Tyler Harrison, and I started working for Proof in 2011 at our first location on Tennessee Street as a door guy. Since then, I have worked at almost every position at Proof over the past 7 years, including security, bar back, and bartender. I even did some work in the brewery on our specialty beers! And if you’ve been to Live Music Fridays at Proof, you’ve probably seen me running sound for the bands.

Booking live music is one of my main focuses as an Assistant Manager. I’ve always had a passion for music, so when the opportunity presented itself to take on the booking role, I jumped at the chance to work with some of the best musicians around. Music, like beer, has a unique way of bringing people together in the community. It’s something we all can enjoy together!

At Proof, we love producing great beer, supporting our local music scene, and providing an amazing customer atmosphere that will make you proud to call Tallahassee “home.” We’re continuing this legacy at our new location at 1320 South Monroe by booking the best local acts for our community to enjoy, while giving talented local musicians the exposure they deserve. By showcasing our local talent through fun events and music festivals, we can help grow and build the local music scene.

Speaking of local talent, Taller Trees will be playing live in the brand new beer garden at 1320 South Monroe for our Grand Opening kick off on Friday, February 8th from 8pm-11pm! Be sure to check our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pg/PBCBeer/events/) event calendar for upcoming shows and help us spread the word by sharing the events with your friends. If you’re in a band and would like to perform at Proof, shoot me an email with a link to your music Tyler@ProofBrewingCo.com. I look forward to seeing you at the next show!

Proper

Food and beer belong together! That’s why we’re excited to announce that our new location at 1320 South Monroe will have both, in the same location! Introducing Proper, a whole new concept located in the onsite kitchen at 1320 South Monroe. Featuring elevated pub fare, Proper will offer unique menu items like K-Town Hot Chicken, Hazed + Confused Mushrooms, and Bratstickers. The menu will include suggested beer pairings with carefully selected Proof draft beers. We’re excited to introduce beer dinners to our event calendar in the coming year with menus crafted by the talented chefs at Proper.

Proper’s concept was created by Owner Brad Buckenheimer of Canopy Road Cafe and Merv’s and Executive Chef Viet Vu of Izzy's, Arepana, and Mobi Food Truck. "This project was purely based out of passion and love for Proof. Viet and I have been friends of the Proof family for a while, with Viet serving as their main Biergarten chef for the past couple of years. When the time came to move, Viet asked me to be a partner, and it was a no brainer. To be able to partner with such innovative and special people was an honor and a privilege, and we are so excited to bring something new to the community with our friends,” says Buckenheimer.

Proper will open at the grand opening of Proof Brewing’s new location on South Monroe. It will service Proof’s patrons and will be open on the weekdays for dinner plus lunch on the weekends with brunch on Sundays. Proper will also be available for catered private events and dinners in our new event space. The event space offers guests a stunning atmosphere to host engagement, holiday, retirement, and birthday parties as well as corporate meetings and events, with views into the Proof brewery and access to a private beer garden.

 Proof Brewing Co’s new location at 1320 South Monroe will open in late January to the public. We look forward to welcoming the community into the tasting room and giving tours of the new facility. Thank you, Tallahassee, for your support!

Expanding Opportunity

Wetchley.jpg

My name is Wetchley Pompilus, and this is my Proof Brewing Co story. I am a Key Holder and Bartender. I have been an employee at Proof Brewing Company for over two years. Before I started working at Proof, I was a student at Florida A&M University just trying to make it day-to-day with financial aid and whatever my mother was able to give me for food and necessities. I wanted to feel more independent and wanted to stop continually asking my mother for money because she was also taking care of my little brother. A friend told me that a company named Proof Brewing Co was looking for a 21+ year old person to work the door position.

At the time, my only work history was working at Papa John’s in my hometown of West Palm Beach during the summer, and I hoped it would be enough to get me a shot at an interview. A few days after giving them my resume I received a phone call from the general manager to come in for an interview! When I arrived at Proof for the interview, I met Michael Kofman (General Manager) and Kris Link (Assistant Manager). They knew what they were looking for in a person to work the door position and asked me if I knew anything about craft beer. I told them that I knew nothing about it but was determined to become knowledgeable. They saw how eager I was and encouraged me to learn about craft beer and the work that goes into it. A little under a week I received a call from Kofman telling me that I was hired and to come in as soon as I could to start my first training shift. I was excited and relieved that I finally had a job.

When I started at Proof, I had no intentions of being promoted. I was just happy to finally have a job! After a while, the General Manager realized how hard I was working and offered me a bar-back position. I accepted and started training to become a full-time bar-back. The bar-back position helped me learn all about the beers Proof Brewing Co brews and more about craft beer in general. When the General Manager told me that I was doing a great job as a bar-back and wanted me to start training for the bartender position, I agreed to it too. To advance to a bartending position, I was required to take the what's called a Cicerone Exam to become a certified beer server. Proof requires that bartenders pass the Cicerone Exam, so they know how to accurately describe beer when they serve it to a customer. I liked the idea and studied hard to pass the exam.

During my time working at Proof, I've made great friends with my coworkers, and they have welcomed me as part of the team since my very first day. Proof has taught me a lot about craft beer and its history, as well as Proof's journey in bringing craft beer to Tallahassee. While attending Florida A&M University, Proof was able to work with me in balancing my time at school and work. I was able to take what I learned at Proof and apply it to my classes too. Proof has taught me about hard work, leadership, teamwork, morality, and dedication. Through my experience at Proof, I have learned valuable lessons that will help me achieve my future goal of becoming a physical therapist, and for that, I am thankful Proof Brewing Co.

Proof will soon be moving to the next level with our new location at 1320 South Monroe, which used to be an old Coca-Cola bottling plant. Over the past several months, we’ve been busy renovating the new location. I believe that Proof’s move to South Monroe will give the area more life and will welcome all who love and enjoy craft beer.

I thank Proof for giving an opportunity to grow with the company as well as a person. It is rare that you find a job, with no intention on being promoted, and find yourself creating a bond with the company, the staff, as well as the people in our community who enjoy the product and what it has to offer. Thank you for reading my story, and I look forward to pouring you a beer soon.
