Located in the very heart of Downtown Pensacola, our unique brewery taps into Pensacola’s rich past, with a nod to a few savory characters plucked right out of the pages of our own family history.
To step through the doors of our 3,100 sq. ft. brewery is to cross into another era: a sea of time-worn memorabilia lines the walls, and seating is in custom fire-branded wood chairs. You’ll always find your favorite brews on the menu, whether it’s our innovative staple brews or hard-to-find central and south Florida craft beers from our guest taps.
While you’re here, don’t miss our legendary bar fare that includes such treats as the giant pretzel dipped in rich, creamy beer cheese or our gourmet meat and cheese charcuterie board. We’ve also got a hand-selected list of wines.
The 5 Barrel is designed to be a place for you to kick back and chill. There’s live music and entertainment but no ear-splitting acoustics here—just an atmosphere that will tempt you to hang out for a while or host your own gathering. We’ve got plenty of comfortable seating, along with dart boards, chess games and other pastimes.
Over the past 450 years Pensacola has seen its share of colorful characters. The city’s red-light and saloon district helped generate a reputation as a “good port” among Navy men. During the Prohibition era the citizens of Pensacola quietly tolerated the presence of alcohol, turning a blind eye to local moon-shiners who operated hidden stills in panhandle wetlands and then bootlegged the fruits of their labors.
Visit The 5 Barrel on any given day and you’ll spot them, secret challenge coins tucked inside their purse or pocket. They are the underground world of The 5 Barrel VIPs, members of the highly-coveted BOOTLEGGERS CLUB.
