Another new brewery could be coming to downtown Pensacola, continuing the ongoing craft beer movement across the Gulf Coast.
Plans to renovate a 1950s-era one-story building near the corner of Jefferson and Garden streets show a new brewery being proposed, according to documents filed with the city.
D.C. Reeves, son of Pensacola developer and former state representative Jim Reeves, filed the plans this week to convert the former Vowell’s Printing building at 50 E Garden Street into a brewery. The plans show the brewery’s name is Perfect Plain Brewing Co.
Reeves is the Director of Operations & Communications at the Studer Family of Companies, a Pensacola-based corporation managed by Quint and Rishy Studer, who are spending nearly $70 million building two mixed-use developments nearby.
The initial building plans call for modifications to the exterior of the building, which must be approved by the city’s Architectural Review Board. If approved and built, the brewery would be the third brewery opened downtown in recent memory. Gulf Coast Brewery opened last year on Heinberg Street in downtown Pensacola.
