The Secret Coast’s effervescent craft beer scene has been bubbling up since July 1, 2017, when Mississippi joined 48 of its fellow states in allowing small breweries to sell beer on-premises. With established local breweries offering cozy taprooms and outdoor patios, and a plethora of nano and micro brewers across the region serving up one-of-a-kind small batches, Coastal Mississippi is the place for some of the best coastal cold ones! From blondes and browns, to seasonal sips and hoppy IPAs, find your new favorite brew along The Secret Coast.
Before visiting, we encourage you to check with individual businesses on any potential changes to their availability and/or hours, but rest assured Coastal Mississippi is working diligently with our partners to ensure your safety and health is the top priority. Find out how in our Destination Promise of health and safety.
