Bone Hook Brewing Co. On Schedule To Open Late 2016

New North Naples Brewery & Tap Room in Creekside Corners

Bone Hook Brewing Co. is on schedule to open its doors to the public by the end of 2016 in their first location at Creekside Corners commercial center on the corner of Immokalee Road and Goodlette Frank Road in Naples, Florida. Bone Hook Brewing Co. is the brainchild of three local businessmen— John English, David Genson, and Jason Vogel. The 3,300 square-foot brewery and tap room will feature rotating craft beers brewed on-site from the finest quality ingredients, utilizing state-of-the-art brewing equipment.

The tap room will showcase 20 beer taps, seat 58 patrons and feature an oversized open window into the brew house operations, giving guests a behind-the-scenes look into the art and science of Bone Hook specialty brewing methods. Three flat-screen televisions, three high top tables seating six people each, five smaller square tables, an eight-person bar and a cozy banquette for casual lounging will provide a variety of seating options. Exterior patio seating for 20 people will also give guests the ability to enjoy the beautiful outdoor Florida weather. Live music and special events will be scheduled on a regular basis.

The brewery, located directly behind the tap room, contains a three-vessel steam-fired 15BBL (465 gallons) brewhouse. In addition the brewery will house three 15bbl and three 30bbl fermentation vessels, and one of each size bright beer tanks (for finished beer). All beer, when appropriate for style, is filtered with a lenticular filter. For experimenting with new recipes, five pilot fermentation tanks are available to the brew master. An on-site laboratory is set up for yeast propagation, water analysis, microbiological analysis, diacetyl and bitterness measurement, besides normal pH and gravity readings. The lab allows the brew master to focus on raw ingredient and final product metrics to achieve batch-to-batch consistency and is the only laboratory of its kind south of Tampa and west of Miami.

“It’s exciting to see what began as a weekend hobby grow into a full-fledged business with a storefront,” comments David Genson, co-founder of Bone Hook Brewing Co. “The scientific process of brewing has always intrigued us— meaning myself, John and Jason— as we are engineers by trade. The measured precision literally poured into every pint speaks to our understanding of order. But it’s the art of the process, the subtle nuances and subjective variables that are most intriguing and make Bone Hook beers unique. We’re thrilled to be a part of the growing craft beer community in Naples and look forward to collaborating with other breweries.”


Bone Hook Brewing Co. was founded in 2016 in Naples, Florida by three local businessmen interested in brewing unique beers that they could share with their friends and family in the spirit of good times. Brewed minutes from the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Bone Hook craft beers represent the consistent quality and excellent taste that savvy beer drinkers demand today with an added touch of Florida sunshine and homegrown goodness.
