Since opening, they have produced over 100 different grain beers with a new limited-batch craft each week. Here are just a few customer favorites from their normal rotation menu:

Snook Bite IPA
This is a flagship beer that is brewed with Simcoe and mosaic hops. It leaves a sharp bite with a rich mango, lemon, citrus, pine, and tropical fruit flavor. It’s half sweet, half bitter taste is perfectly balanced.
YAY! Sanibel Saison
This brew is best enjoyed watching the sunset on the beach. Light strawberry tastes are complimented with a mild spiciness and dry finish. It’s a Belgian-inspired farmhouse ale that enjoys a beachy twist.
Sanibel Red Island Ale
Inspired by Irish red ale, this brew is lightly hopped and malted. It leaves a toasted taste with just a bit of sweetness and a clean finish.

While You are in the Area, Be Sure to Explore the Town of Point Ybel
After Ponce de Leon supposedly discovered Sanibel Island during his quest for the fountain of youth, he named the beautiful island “Santa Isybella.” The very first pioneer settlement in Sanibel centered their homes around Point Ybel in 1832. This made the the town the main hub of activity for many years. Today, you can explore “Old Town Sanibel” and view major points of interest such as the Point Ybel Lighthouse. This tower was the first lighthouse on Florida’s Gulf Coast north of Key West.
