Eight-Foot Brewing LLC in Cape Coral opened on July 28 to debut its handcrafted brews at new establishment at 4417 S.E. 16th Place, Unit 1, owned by husband and wife Roger and Alex Phelps.

Roger Phelps said Eight-Foot Brewing will initially be open each Saturday, from 1-10 p.m.

"We will be offering many different styles. We have a smaller system, which allows us to produce a smaller amount of a greater variety as opposed to large quantities," he said.

The Phelps will focus on crafting unique beers through a barrel-aged, mixed-fermentation program. The brewery will produce typical beer styles through "clean fermentation" and also produce atypical beer through a barrel-aged program, which includes mixed-fermentation.

One of the Phelps' goals is educating staff and patrons about the history of the craft through guided tastings, brewing classes and more.

"The more you think about the beer, you tend to develop an appreciation for it," he added.

Part of Eight-Foot Brewing's mission is to showcase local musicians and visual artists, create a quality brew and provide a comfortable community space where patrons can go to relax.

"A lot of people have described it as cozy," he said. "We're not going to have a bunch of TVs and sports."

Phelps has been studying brewing for 11 years, and the couple worked more than three years to launch their establishment, named in honor of the octopus and featured in the brewery's dcor. Learn more at
