Bryan Hackman, and his wife Kelly, are the owners of Cotee River Brewing Company in historic downtown New Port Richey in July 2018. An avid lover of craft beer, Bryan decided to open a brewery to help draw people to his hometown, and assist with tourism and redevelopment of the area. He loves being a business owner in downtown and welcomes all who come to visit his place and enjoy his fresh made beer.
Cotee River Brewing Company is the only brewery located in the City of New Port Richey. Currently using a 3 barrel brewing system, Cotee River enjoys creating smaller batches of beer to ensure the beer stays fresh for our guests to enjoy.
Our brewing facility is located in the same place as our taproom so it is possible to watch our brewers as they make beer, while you sit and enjoy a fresh pint.
Our brewers welcome questions and enjoy visiting with guests at the brewery. If you are ever visiting while they are brewing, be sure to pop your head in and say hi and see what they are up to.
Our taproom is located in historic downtown New Port Richey.
A comfortably designed location with a nod to the history of the Pithlachascotee (aka Cotee) River, guests can enjoy seeing old historic photos of the river on the walls.
Moderately decorated in "River" design, the environment is rustic and chic with a mix of wood and metal.
A small stage welcomes musicians every Friday and Saturday evening, and Sunday afternoon, making The River the most comfortable and relaxing atmosphere in downtown.
