Since opening in the fall of 2015, Civil Society Brewing has been an immediate local hit, and the Jupiter brewery is showing no sign of slowing down.
Need proof? Civil Society managed to land a spot on Thrillist’s Best New Breweries in America list earlier this month.
This is a huge accolade for Civil Society Brewing considering there are currently more breweries operating in America than at any other point in history, as Thrillist pointed out. In fact, in 2016, the rate of new brewery openings was two per day.
Thrillist’s list featured 14 breweries nationwide, from Long Live Beerworks in Providence, Rhode Island, to Moonraker Brewing Co. in Auburn, California. Civil Society was the only Florida brewery to make the list.
“It’s been a wild 15 months, but we are just happy that people like to drink the beer we like to brew,” owner and head brewer Karl Volstad said.
Finalists were chosen among U.S. breweries that have opened in the past 18 months, as selected by Thrillist writers as well as “our colleagues, our friends, our families, and in at least one case, a rap duo.”
Thrillist recommended cooling down at the Jupiter hot spot with popular cold ones including Subject Eleven, a double IPA; Bella’s Revenge, an imperial stout; and Morning Fix, a brown ale.
Thrillist isn’t the only publication that has generated attention for Civil Society Brewing lately – it was also listed as a “brewery to watch” late last year in DRAFT Magazine, and as one of the Best New Brewers in the World by RateBeer.com this January.
