Business Manager Millie Shamburger said. "We want to let people see what we've been up to for the past year and a half." With brother Ryan serving as the logistician and parents, Julie and Jim, as owners, the Big Beach Brewing Co. is truly a family affair that's rooted in Jim Shamburger's passion for craft beer. "My father has been brewing for about seven years, and he really wanted to make this happen," Shamburger said. "It was weird that there wasn't a brewery in Gulf Shores yet. My dad's a smart dude. He figured out a way to make it happen. One day, he said, 'let's just do this." And a year and a half later, they did. The 4,000-square-foot facility houses a 10-barrel brew system with four fermenters—complete with an outdoor observation deck. At the opening, Big Beach Brewing will be serving an original Irish Red, Pale Ale, Cream Ale, IPA, and Brown Ale. Although they won't serve food, customers are encouraged to bring their own. "We want everyone to come visit," Shamburger said. "We want everyone to come enjoy the live music, the atmosphere, and to have a beer." Big Beach Brewing Co. is located at 300 E. 24 th Ave. in Gulf Shores.
