Holy Mackerel!We get these questions a lot!
Is it true that Holy Mackerel Small Batch Beers doesn't brew their own beer?
This is a common misconception. But, perhaps it’s best for us to answer this question with a question –
Let’s say John Smith from “Smiths Brewery ” always brewed a fantastic pale ale but at a certain point because he decided to focus on various aspects of growing the business decided he would hire a brewer to brew the beer. He trained him in detail on the ingredients and the procedure for brewing. Is “Smiths Brewery” brewing the beer?
Of course, and it’s the same at Holy Mackerel where we brew our recipes on a small batch brewery and than we share this process with another brewery to reproduce the beer for us so we are able to free ourselves up to focus on growing the business and working on new recipes.
Is Holy Mackerel Small Batch Beers A Local Brewery To South Florida?
We get asked this question quite a bit and we assume it’s because our beer is brewed under agreement with Thomas Creek Brewery in South Carolina.
Corey as well as his siblings grew up and went to school in South Florida, and as for myself I am a Hollywood, Florida native. All our test batches are brewed locally and we strive to use local ingredients and local partners whenever possible as long as it doesn’t hinder quality. An example of this is our partnership with “Calusa Coffee Roasters” in Ft. Lauderdale. Also, we will soon be opening our own small batch brewery in Pompano Beach with a taproom as well so we will be able to share with our fans all of our pilot batches from our small system. As for ourselves; we enjoy many other local brewery’s beers, however our true focus is on quality, PERIOD and we enjoy many a great craft beer from all over, and we hope that locals as well as fans from other states will appreciate our Demented brews. An interesting side-note is that even local brews often times use imported yeast, hops and grains from all over the world!
