Our story

Fat Point's signature beers

Where It All Began

Fat Point Brewing is Charlotte County's first craft brewery, producing fresh, local and hand-crafted beers. Its critically acclaimed beers include BRU MAN CHU Belgian Trippel and RYEGHT ANGLE, which won a gold and silver medals at both the U.S. Open Beer Championship and Best Florida Beer Championships. Most recently, Ryeght Angle took home a bronze medal at the 2019 U.S. Open Beer Championship and Fat Point's Oatmeal Stout took home a silver medal. Previously, BIG BOCA ALE took bronze at the Best Florida Beer Championships.

Led by their Head Brewer, Fat Point Brewing has introduced two new core beers: Hoppin' Harbor Tropical Pale Ale and Cape Haze Fruited Wheat brewed with real pineapples and passionfruit along with its flagship beer, Big Boca Ale.

Fat Point's core beers are available in 4-pack, 16-oz. cans and on tap in select locations throughout Florida. Seasonal beers will also be released in package, including Pumpka Gourda, our spiced pumpkin ale.

As of July 2021, we will be closing our taproom for the off-season with the plan to re-open in the Fall. This will allow us to make much needed repairs and improvements that we have been putting off for years. Who doesn't want to come back to a new AC and improved beer garden?! Not to worry, many of the beers above will still be in the market fresh and available. For more information on where you can find our beer, please visit our Beer Finder.
