3 Daughters Brewing
How many beers does it take to put three daughters through college?
The owners don’t know the answer, but certainly hope to find out. There is meaning behind the name 3 Daughters Brewing. Founders Mike and Leigh Harting actually named the brewery for their three little girls.
The concept of 3 Daughters Brewing started with Mike and Head Brewer (then Head Chef) Ty Weaver in a local restaurant in St Petersburg, Florida. They were working on a recipe for a beer battered fish and decided to make it with their own hand crafted brews. No surprise, it sold a lot of fish and fueled their passion for brewing craft beer.
As the popularity of the beers grew, Mike and Ty decided to invest in a brewhouse to increase their brewing capacity for the restaurant. When they picked out a 30-barrel system, it was time to move on from the restaurant industry and start a journey in craft beer. As the brewery was being built, the common joke was, “how many beers do we have to sell to put 3 Daughters through college?”
And so the shortening of the name to 3 Daughters Brewing…
