Calling all beer lovers.
Ye Olde Brothers Brewery will be hosting the 2021 Craft Beer Fest Saturday, March 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Come sample your favorite beers from along the Gulf Coast. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased online at www.yeoldebrothersbrewery.com/beerfest. They include entry to the event, beer tasting, live entertainment and a souvenir glass, while supplies last.
Ye Old Brothers Brewery will celebrate their sixth year in business in April, and the popularity of the brewery and family-friendly restaurant continues to grow. It is located along Highway 87 in Holley, just a few minutes outside of Navarre.
Ye Old Brothers is the place to be on weekends. On Friday nights, they have cornhole tournaments starting at 6:30 p.m. for anyone who would like to come play or watch. Brunch is served Saturday mornings and all-day Sunday with bottomless mimosas or a bloody mary pitcher – each only $15.
The brewery-restaurant serves a delicious brunch menu, featuring brisket and western omelets, breakfast pizza made with homemade sausage and bacon gravy as the sauce and French toast made with thick Texas toast.
Ye Olde offers a great selection of craft beer and food. Brewed right on-site, 16 of the 18 beers they sell on tap are their originals.
But it’s not just beer you will find at Ye Olde. Delicious wood-fired oven pizza made with top quality ingredients, including homemade sauces and dough, is one of the menu’s biggest hits.
Manager Christy Skerrett started working at Ye Olde Brothers Brewery in March 2017 and has watched the brewery grow and evolve into what it is.
“We are making the brewing process as efficient as possible,” Skerrett said.
Her favorite beer currently is Raspberry Wheat, which is one of their newer craft beers on tap.
Freshly smoked meat is available including ribs, pulled pork or brisket. And if you are looking for dessert after your meal, turtle cheesecake and apple cobbler with ice cream are among your choices.
Ye Olde is branching out into the catering realm and loves to help the community through fundraising efforts such as military appreciation causes and supporting first responders. They purchased a flat-top grill to make catering and mobilizing Ye Olde Brothers easier.
Though Ye Olde is on the northern edge of Navarre, the trip up the highway is one that is well worth it because it is much more than a place to have a tasty meal or drink a great craft beer.
“It’s kind of like a destination thing,” co- owner Larry Rolison said. “If you give people a great experience, they will come back. And we’ve been able to do that.”
