Tallahassee's first production brewery is expected to bring 30+ jobs to the area.
Eyewitness News got a sneak peek of 'Proof Brewing Company' earlier today before the grand opening this afternoon..
The ten-thousand square foot brewery is located in Railroad Square, and has a 20-barrel brew house, a tap room, and a beer garden outside where patrons can relax or play games.
Managers say being able to make their own beer on-site and deliver it to other places, can help boost the local economy.
"For people basically who travel from all sorts of places just to come try our product that they can't get anywhere else. That'll bring people staying in hotels. That'll have people buying food in restaurants. It'll have people going to, people who go to the games, and so on and so forth," said Jonathan Pacha, Proof Brewing Company.
Proof Brewery officially opened at three p-m and already looks like a popular spot.
A couple hundred people were lined up at the door before the business opened.
