Civil Society Brewing Co. has announced it will open a second brewery and taproom in West Palm Beach on Friday, February 15.
The 5,200-square-foot brewery and taproom
Civil Society co-owners Karl Volstad and Evan Miller first announced plans to open a second location via social media in December 2017. According to Volstad, the idea to open a new brewery was born out of necessity.
"We were growing so fast it was hard to keep up with the demand at Abacoa due to our size," Volstad says. "We've been looking for a space to grow that would allow us to do more."

The new West Palm Beach location houses a 15-barrel brew house where 14 taps will serve Civil Society's core beers including Fresh IPA, Juice DIPA, Pulp American wheat ale, and Blondes Make Me Hoppy blonde ale alongside regular collaborations. Also, keep an eye out for specialty treated beers on tap from time to time, part of Civil Society's expanded barrel-aging program currently underway at the Jupiter location.
Moving forward, expect more output from the West Palm Beach brewery, which will translate to regular can releases to be held at both locations.
"The larger system means more volume, something we really needed in order to keep up with demand," Volstad says. "The new brewery will make it so that we can get more product out in cans and distribution."
