Terrible experience.I missed out on my chanc to get a PS5 at rhis location while waiting for an email. Had a sketchy... homeless guy come into the store touching everything and said I was eyeballing him. I agreed that I was eyeballing him bc he was touching everything and didn't buy a single thing. But yeah, I missed out on my chance to get my new console. For the distraction alone this location get 1 star. ⭐read more

Fantastic brewery just down the street from the main Tarpon Springs strip. Wide variety of their beers to chose from as... well TVs to watch sports. I brought my 2 little dogs and we sat outside. We had an absolute fantastic time talking to people as they walked by. The bartenders checked up on us and it was overall a well spent night. Would definitely come again!read more

This is a great little brewery in the heart of the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks, owned and operated by retired or... soon-be-retired military. Their beers were fantastic - it was named Very Small Brewery of the Year at the 2020 Great American Beer Festival - and we had a good time talking with the ownersread more

I am amazed at the variety of crafted beers they have on tap here. Knowing its been brewed right there makes this... place even more special.The staff has always been pleasant and very informative to the brews on hand.The owner(s) are wonderful people and very knowledgeable and don't mind sharing their information, just not their recipe.Give it a try, the atmosphere is perfect with live music. You can listen to the music and yet still be able to carry a conversation.Love this placeread more

Wow...what a surprise!!! We just happened to be walking by after dinner and decided to stop in. Live music, great... atmosphere, friendly service! They have a variety of beers from ales to IPA, and even a Sour!!!! This was probably the most friendly place we have ever been.They are very pro military and have a pay it forward wall. They will put a magnet on the wall if you want to buy a drink. They give vets a free drink when they come in! It was the cherry on top of the more

About 5 Branches Brewing

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.

Ramey is a 24 year Air Force Veteran that retired July 1st 2021. He is the owner/operator of 5 Branches Brewing. In 2019 he founded 5 Branches Brewing with Jerry.

Jerry is a 27 year Army Veteran still currently serving. He is the owner/Lead Brewer of 5 Branches Brewing. In 2019 he founded 5 Branches Brewing with Ramey.
