Apalachicola, Florida (January 31, 2019) – Wiregrass Equity Partners is pleased to announce its equity partnership with Oyster City Brewing Company, LLC, an award-winning craft brewery with a rich heritage and strong following.
Based in Apalachicola, FL, a small waterfront community with a deep history, Oyster City Brewing Company was founded in 2013 by Cassie Gary, Rex Humphries, Susan Gary, and Bo Walker who all remain shareholders in the company. Since opening its doors, the high demand for their exceptional lineup of beers has grown exponentially. As a result, they have designed an incredibly efficient brewery, producing approx. 1.4 barrels per square foot annually.
Having reached its capacity in less than 5 years, the primary goal is to increase the volume and distribution levels of the brewery, in order to meet the demand with existing networks, and share the beers with enthusiasts across the Southeast.
“Our focus is predicated on maintaining the culture of our company, which lies within the heart of the Apalachicola community and its wonderful people, while sharing these award-winning beers with more people through increased production capability.”, said Darin Phillips, CEO of Wiregrass Equity Partners. “It’s a family. It always will be.”
