ZBC Announces Founders Club!


Zephyrhills Brewing Company is super excited to offer this one of a kind, downright crazy, what are we thinking, kind of brewery offer to end all offers.

We will be filling a VERY LIMITED number of founding member spots for Zephyrhills Brewing Company that includes a HUGE LIST of benefits. The offer is ONE TIME ONLY and you MUST COMMIT BEFORE April 15, 2016.  THIS IS A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE OFFER, and we already have several folks who are well on their way!

What do you need to do to become a ZBC Founding Member? Great question! You have several options to choose from and there is something for everyone… or at least a very limited number of you anyway! You only need to choose one option to be in the club!

Option 1– Put in at least 25 brewery work hours to be completed by July 15, 2016 If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind shedding some blood, sweat and beers…I mean tears, and no blood please, then we have a LOT of jobs that need done before we can open our doors to the public- so if you are a hands on type person, this one is for you!

Option 2 – $500 cash will reserve your spot in the ZBC Founders Club. We are not gonna sugar coat it- opening a brewery takes a lot of money, so every little bit helps! This is a great option for people who lead busy lives but still love craft beer!  Money must be paid to Zephyrhills Brewing Company before April 15th, 2016 but remember, first come first serve!

Option 3 Can’t make up your mind?  Like to work but are also busy? We have just the solution for you! $250 cash and 12.5 work hours at the brewery.  Again, money and work must be in by July 1, 2016 and first come first serve.

By now, you are probably wondering “ What’s in this for me?”  or maybe you’re wondering “I’m not sure what option to take – tell me what it’s all about” Or maybe you’re wondering “when will he stop and just tell us the deal?”

Here’s the plan!


• YOUR FIRST CORE* BEER ALWAYS ON US! (Limit 1 per day, served in a 20 oz Founding Member glass- see below)  This means you can come in every day the brewery is open and have your first core* beer absolutely free.  No charge.  Complimentary.

– All subsequent Core beers thereafter your first free beer will be served to you in an EXCLUSIVE Founding Member 20 oz glass (normal glasses are 16 oz) for the price of a 16 oz pour. That’s a 20% discount on all our Core  beers!  Or is it 25% I always get those two confused…  Anyway, it’s a great deal.

And if that’s not enough….

You also receive:


• Your name on the ZBC Founding Member list.

• Exclusive FREE “members only” tasting events and parties throughout the year.

• Special behind the scenes, one on one tours and tastings.

• Access to our “invitation only” soft openings.

• First choice to purchase our special and limited release bottles.

• First choice on special events with  discounted ticket prices

• One Zephyrhills Brewing Company  “FOUNDING MEMBER” Tee shirt.

• 10% off all brewery themed merchandise.

• 10% off all growler fills. Any beer we offer in growlers.


In summary, this is an exclusive, one time only, limited time offer. You will receive FOREVER benefits with a one time work or money

(or work and money) commitment. Just to be clear – this offer will never, ever, be offered again. We might have a mug club or something of that nature in the future, but it will be a yearly renewal type deal and the benefits will not even come close to the ZBC Founders Club.

Ready to invest in your future?  Oh come on you know you want to! Please reach out to us by email robert@zbcbeer.com,  you will hear back from me within a couple of days.

*Zephyrhills Brewing Company will have at least 5 core beers year round. These are the beers that will be available for your free daily beer, as well as 20 oz pours in the Founding members glass. Any seasonal or special release beers will be served in style specific glassware at normal prices.

Make your mark on the new Brewery!

Starting Saturday March 12, we will be offering several new opportunities to support your local Zephyrhills Brewing Company!

Your Name Here – the bar stool version:

We have 36 bar stools and 50 chairs.  We are be offering “naming rights” for each one.  You can up to 3 lines of text on the plate and it will be permanently mounted on the stool or chair. Imagine how cool it will be to bring your friends and show them “your” stool!  Tell them any story – we’ll back you up.  This option is only $75 and if you buy in the month of March – we’ll throw in a free t-shirt and some stickers!


Your Name Here – the paving brick version:

Our new front patio area will have 4″ x 8″ paving bricks as a deck.  The deck will be similar to the city sidewalks in style and color.  We are offering only 50 of the bricks to be engraved with your name and message and installed permanently in the deck area.  Heck, if you want you can pick where on the patio you want it installed!  This option is only $100 and if you buy in the month of March – we’ll throw in a free t-shirt and some stickers!


Your Name Here – the decorative block version:

In our beautiful new patio deck will be some 8 x 8 pavers to give some flair.  We are offering only 5 of these blocks for you to personalize.  The decorative blocks will be a different color than the pavers and will definitely be a feature you can be proud of when you show your friends. This option is only $200 and if you buy in the month of March – we’ll throw in a free t-shirt, ball cap  and some stickers!


Your Name Here – The brewing edition:

This is a very limited opportunity offered to only 4 sessions.  You and up to 3 of your friends will pick a style of beer and spend the day at the brewery making a batch.  Once the beer is ready to serve you will give it a name and ZBC will throw a release party for your beer.  Truly an opportunity that does not come around often.  This offer includes T-shirts for your crew, a growler filled with your beer to take home, and an assortment of stickers.  This option is only $500.  STRICTLY LIMITED TO 4

Bar starts to take shape.

The base frame of the bar came together this week.  The top will be some old picky cypress and the front will be barnyard and oak.  DSCN0744

Fermentation vessels have reported for duty.

We have just received our fermentation vessels from the vendor.  We have 8 2 bbl fermenters and 6 1/2 bbl vessels.   We will need to add valves, drains, and tasting valves before they can be put into service.DSCN0747

The Brew House has arrived!

Our all electric automated 2 barrel brewhouse has finally arrived.  This Brewmation system will speed production and will also remember my recipe!DSCN0735  The tanks you see are (from left to right) the Hot Liqueur tank, the mash tun, the boil kettle, and the brite tank.


The large bent pipe is a condensate stack.
