Tallahassee’s Proof Brewing Company celebrates a decade in business

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – The capital’s craft beer scene is quite impressive.

There are, by one count, at least six local breweries to choose from. The oldest of the group is celebrating a pretty big milestone this weekend.

Pick almost any night of the year, and the South Monroe home of Proof Brewing Company is buzzing.

The huge indoor-outdoor venue is a far cry from Proof’s original West Tennessee street location, which opened in 2012.

“It has been an incredible journey. We have a fantastic team,” said Byron Burroughs, who founded Proof at the time.

“There are always challenges along the way, but I think we have such a resilient team and mindset that we were able to overcome it all,” he said.

Proof’s current home opened in 2019 and represents a commitment to the South Monroe neighborhood.

“It’s amazing to see the wide range of people who come to Proof,” he said.

According to Tallahassee Beer Society co-founder Danny Aller, the impressive operation also serves as a model for how to successfully brew in the capital.

“Without proof, there is no craft beer scene in Tallahassee, they paved the way for everyone else,” he said.

Aller said Proof, along with Ology, Deep Brewing, Lake Tribe Brewing and others, has forged a new standard.

“You know you can’t get into this market without brewing great beer,” Aller said. “You have to come with your ‘A’ game.”

Proof celebrates the 10th anniversary with an all-day party Saturday featuring live music and beer specials. They are open from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
