Mad Beach Brewing Company’s ‘Sesh’ brewery and restaurant is opening in St. Petersburg, Florida in early 2022.

Sesh St. Pete, a new brewery and restaurant from Mad Beach Craft Brewing Company, is set to open at Fourth Street’s historic Earl Gresh Cottage (previously a Melting Pot) in early 2022, according to I Love the Burg.

The new concept will serve the same brews that made Mad Beach a popular tourist destination. As far as food goes, expect a few favorites to travel over, like the Jelly Donut Burger, but also a few new dishes that have yet to be announced.

Owner of the popular John’s Pass brewery Matthew Powers told the Tampa Bay Times that the company had been looking for a second St. Pete location. When a contract fell through, Powers found his opportunity and took it.

Demo on the historic building, located at 2221 4th St. N, has been underway since April, and the restaurant has said it’ll bring in paranormal investigators to have a look around the possibly haunted destination.
