One thing, of many, that I love about SWFL is the number of breweries we have, and a new brewery is coming to Fort Myers.
At the corner of Fowler Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard is an old church that has been a few different things over the years, but nothing ever stuck. Soon, however, there will be a new brewery taking over that building called Swamp Cat Brew Co.
Swamp Cat owner Chris Gutierrez told NBC2 that they’ll be renovating the church to give it a modern feel, but still keeping a bit of its history.
The hope is that project will be ready by early next year, and they plan on building an outdoor beer garden, indoor seating and full-size kitchens for food vendors.
There’s already about 20 breweries in SWFL in Marco Island, Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Cape Coral and LaBelle but with the way that microbreweries have gained popularity especially over the last few years, it’s exciting that we’ll be getting another one. And with a name like Swamp Cat, they’re definitely embracing the Florida vibe.
