5 Branches Brewing is a veteran owned and operated nanobrewery located in Tarpon Springs Florida. Approaching retirement after full-time careers in the Air Force and Army, fellow service members Ramey Simpson and Jerry Brown decided to pool their resources and launch a modest brewery they could operate after leaving the military.
In November 2019, they officially opened 5 Branches Brewing. The name pays homage to the five branches of the military – the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. The brewery proudly supports the veteran community. They give back to the community by donating to many veteran charities and projects and continue to give back whenever possible. The brewery slogan is “Every Beer Has a Story”. Our mission is to create unique, clean, crisp, craft beer using quality ingredients, innovation, fun and creativity, while supporting and honoring all service members.
