fatpoint4thannyFat Point Brewing (Punta Gorda, Florida) has officially announced that it will release a limited-edition Peanut Butter Scotch Ale at its Fourth Anniversary Party on Saturday, February 9.

Brewed specifically for Fat Point’s Fourth Anniversary Party, Peanut Butter Scotch Ale is a decadent “malty beer with a rich and sweet flavor profile.”  Anyone lucky enough to get their hands on a pour of this draft-only indulgence will discover that the “caramel and peanut butter notes work together to create a smooth, rich and flavorful beer that is both sweet and savory.”

Peanut Butter Scotch Ale will officially debut at noon on February 9 during Fat Point’s Fourth Anniversary Party.  This event will feature $4 pints from Fat Point and Big Storm Brewing Co., a variety of family-friendly outdoor games, and live musical performances from DJ Diwrection and 1984 – a Van Halen Tribute band.  The event is free to attend from noon to 4 p.m. If you wish to hang around after 4 p.m. to see the band, you will have to purchase a ticket (click here to do so).

“We want to celebrate this milestone and say thanks to the community of Punta Gorda and all our Fat Point fans for supporting our passion, love and commitment for brewing great beer.”

Fat Point Brewing and Big Storm Brewing Unite Under Seaboard Craft Beer Holdings

fatpointglass_editedFat Point Brewing (Punta Gorda, Florida) and Big Storm Brewing Co. (Clearwater, Florida) have come forward to announce that the two breweries have finalized a deal to associate under Big Storm’s parent company Seaboard Craft Beer Holdings.

Back in February of this year, Fat Point Brewing hit the Florida craft beer community with the sad news that it would be closing its production facility and taproom shortly after its 2nd Anniversary.  Upon hearing this announcement, the folks at Big Storm Brewing and Seaboard Craft Beer Holdings quickly reached out to Fat Point to see if they could assist in any way, shape or form to keep their fellow brewery from closing.  A deal was struck, a partnership was established, and both breweries are now happy to announce that Fat Point will remain open to “continue production of its fresh, local handcrafted beers.”  Fat Point Brewing founder Bill Frazer will remain with the brewery and “continue producing the company’s four signature craft beers which include Big Boca Ale, Reyght Angle IPA, the Belgian-style Tripel Bru Man Chu and Going Mintal, a Belgian-style Wheat Beer featuring subtle hints of lemon and mint.”

“We are all very excited about our new affiliation with Big Storm, and throughout this process have discovered several similarities in our culture and goals. Our values and vision have not faltered, which is to continue to deliver a great beer and customer experience,” said Fat Point Brewing founder Bill Frazer.


“We believe in protecting and nurturing the local craft beer industry and it was vitally important we preserve the quality beers Fat Point is producing,” said Seaboard co-founder L.J. Govoni. “We are truly excited to partner with Frazer and his staff and our main priority will be to support their efforts of producing innovative beers while making sure more Florida consumers are exposed to the Fat Point name and product,” Govoni added.

Fat Point Brewing’s taproom and brewery will operate just as it did before this partnership was formed.  Taproom hours are as follows:

  • Monday – Thursday: 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Friday: 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Saturday: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Sunday: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If you cannot make it to Punta Gorda, you can also find the beers of Fat Point Brewing available throughout southwest Florida including Tampa, Fort Myers, Naples and Cape Coral.

We could not be happier that this initially dismal situation has resulted in a happy ending/new beginning.  Here’s to a future filled with many good years and success for Fat Point Brewing.  Drink local.  Support local.  Keep on rockin’. Prost!
