Mathews Brewing Co., Lake Worth’s First Brewery, Is Now Open!
WPB Collective Joins Other New Business Concepts In Reimagined City Place
he retail landscape continues to change and evolve across the U.S., and the developers behind WPB’s iconic City Place, which opened in 2000 are staying ahead of the curve to keep customers coming back again and again. Broadly speaking, City Place will be continually adding new retail, dining, and cultural experiences to the mix, responding to the evolution of retail in general.
f you live in or around Lake Worth and wondered if or when you’d have your very own local brewery, your wait is over. Right out of the gate Mathews plans to have 14 beers on tap, with quite a few that catch our eye including the L-Dub Tropical Ale, an American-session pale ale featuring notes of citra, mosaic, and el dorado. A couple others to check out are the Stardog, an American Brown Ale, and Florida Haze, a New England Style IPA. Plus, they have a cask program with 2-4 of those brews on tap at a time.
WPB Collective is a fresh concept that opened in December. The Collective, which occupies nearly 5000 square feet of space features pop-up shops and experiences that showcase carefully curated Palm Beach County goods of all types. Companies at the Collective will change from time to time, giving locals and visitors alike a reason to visit and see what’s new.
They’re open every day except Mondays with $1 off pints for happy hour Tuesday-Friday from 4-6pm.
Among the several shops that are now open include Pumphouse Coffee Roasters and Dreamallows. The crew at Pumphouse get their beans from the top 1% of coffee farmers around the globe to get the optimal flavor, sweetness, and body from their hands on roasting process. They will “roast to order” in small batches and they even offer weekly and monthly coffee subscriptions, so you can get your beans delivered right to your door. Dreamallows features handcrafted stuffed marshmallows using a flavored ganache using Callebaut German Chocolate, the very best in Belgium chocolate. Flavors include raspberry, s’more, salted caramel, and more. You can order online and pick them up at the store or have them shipped to you. Other vendors include Vagabond Apparel Boutique, Uncommon James by Kristen Cavallar, Lola Chiq and Moonlight Radiance.
