Our Brewery

Jamesport Brewing Company operates a 3 barrel brew house. The brewing process starts with the 3 barrel direct fire kettle and mash/lauter tun system. The “beer” is then transferred into one of our  fermenters. Our system has 3, 6 barrel fermenters for a maximum production of 18 barrels at any one time.  After fermentation the beer is ready to be served and is transferred to the coolers.  Cooler options include one of our 6, 6 barrel serving tanks, or  2, 3 barrel serving tanks. Given our high summer demand, a significant number of half barrel kegs are also filled and maintained in one of large coolers. Jamesport has 14 available taps giving us the option to serve 14 unique craft beers at any one time. Our brewery has consistently provided the “Best Beer in Port” for 16 years.
