I can’t believe it’s been nearly 4 years since my last visit to Sailfish Brewing Company. A lot has changed during that time with a complete renovation of the tap room. They took out the centrally located bar and pushed it towards the back wall. While they lost a few bar seats, they gained the much needed floor space to add more tables. The room also feels more open and inviting too! Behind the bar you will find the brew room where they make, bottle, can, and keg all of their beer for distribution. Downtown Ft Pierce always seems to have a problem with parking, but you can usually find spots behind the brewery or along the street. A block over and on the West side of the train tracks is a parking garage with free parking to help during the busier times. Craft breweries were hit hard earlier this year when Covid-19 hit and they were forced to shutdown. Those with food could stay open, so with the previous tenant that ran The Crafted Pie shutting down, this gave them the opportunity to adapt and re-open under their own name and offer food. With the new menu in place, I thought I would stop by and check it out.
Now let’s jump right in and see what this place has to offer and what I had to eat and drink!
#1 – Sailfish Lager – Helles | ABV – 4.8%
Tasting Notes: Aroma was subtle, light, crisp, an easy drinking beer. It pours crystal clear with a light golden color. It’s a mainstream style lager with a light bready finish. Suggested Food Pairing – 2nd St Gorgonzola Fries
#2 – Fish Whistle – Pale Ale American | ABV – 5.7%
Tasting Notes: Aroma was subtle, light, crisp, with notes of grain and hay. It was sweet up front with a hoppy finish. Suggested Food Pairing – Caprese Flatbread pizza.
#3 – Pineapple Man – IPA Imperial / Double | ABV – 9.3%
Tasting Notes: Aroma was subtle, amber in color, crisp, not as bitter as I thought for a DIPA. Needs a bit more pineapple flavor in my opinion. Suggested Food Pairing – Hot Honey Pepperoni pizza.
#4 – Chesire Catfish – Porter American | ABV – 7%
Tasting Notes: Aroma was sweet, dark brown, almost black in color. It had notes of chocolate and coffee and was sweet to taste. Suggested Food Pairing – Housemade Donut Holes
