NAPLES, Fla. - "It's an art, it's a science," said Will Lawson.
Will Lawson has been busy perfecting the beer inside these tanks.
"This is a six year process for me. It has become realized," said Lawson. "We chose Naples, to come back to Naples, because we knew there was nothing like this here and we wanted to bring the culture of small breweries, craft beer, to the southwest Florida community," said Lawson.
After a lengthy process, Lawson said he just received the licensing he needs to sell his draft.
"Our first run of production is actually behind us in our cold cooler."
It takes about two weeks for the beer to be made. And once it's complete, it won't be sold in beers or bottles, instead he'll sell it in kegs.
"Next week we'll pass the kegs over to coastal beverages our distributor and they'll start selling the beer around town. I don't have any employees, i don't even pay myself at this time."
Lawson looks forward to the day he finally brings home a paycheck. Until then, he'll keep giving his business all the sweat equity it needs.
"Being here today is extremely satisfying and anything after today, it just builds on that," said Lawson.
Lawson hopes to have the beer sold at retailers next month. But you can get a taste of it before then, the brewery offers tours on Friday and Saturday afternoon.
