Marker 48 Brewing marks 48 Months of delicious beer in Hernando County, Florida’s
Weeki Wachee, Fla. — Since November 2015, the folks at Marker 48 Brewing in Weeki Wachee have been making and serving delicious craft beer to the local community and visitors from all over the world who drop by as part of their adventures on Florida’s Nature Coast.
And on Saturday, Nov. 16, the brewery will open its doors to mark its four-year — 48-month — anniversary with a daylong party to celebrate the occasion and thank its customers for their continued support.
The event will feature live music on two stages and special beer releases throughout the day, including the debut of beers from Marker 48’s sour barrel room and foeder. In addition, there will be guest taps from their friends in the Florida brewing community, including Tampa Bay Brewing Company, Mastry’s Brewing Co., Coppertail Brewing Co. Nine State Brewery, Hidden Springs Ale Works, Escape Brewing Company, Brew Bus Brewing, Motorworks Brewing and Copp Brewery.
Marker 48 is the dream come true for local couple and co-owners Tina and Maurice Ryman — longtime homebrewers and craft beer fans. And four years after opening the craft brewery in a former auto-repair shop, they can hardly believe what it has become.
“It surpassed our expectations,” Tina Ryman says. “It’s created a fantastic avenue for us to bring the community together. We’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime, too.”
A special treat will be axe throwing target courses set up by Axe Throwing Tampa from 1 to 5 p.m. There will be two courses set up, with a coach at each one to offer tips and guiding games. The cost for that will be $20 per wristband, which allows unlimited throws. (Intoxicated people will, of course, not be allowed to participate).
Beer, wine, sangria and cider will be sold on a token system – $5 per token, each good for a full pour or two half-pours. The first 200 people who spend $20 or more on drink tokens will receive a free anniversary glass.
Tickets for soft drinks and bottled water will be $1 each.
Multiple food trucks will be on site all day, including The BarnYard, Lou Ami’s, The Postmen Coffee Co. and Nina’s Wood Fire Pizza.
Bands scheduled to play include brewery favorites DeShun, Propaganjah, Stone Grey, Shawn Scheller & the Contenders, and Actual Bank Robbers, with more to be announced as the event draws closer.
The brewery asks that attendees please do not park in the lots of fellow businesses Tire Kingdom or Weeki Wachee Car Wash. Brewery parking will be clearly marked, but using Uber, Lyft or taxi services to and from the event is HIGHLY recommended to keep the roads safe and the parking issues down.
Admission is free to the party, which will run from noon to midnight. As always, children are welcome during the day, but the management would prefer adults only after 9 p.m.
