On the Ale Trail: Prosperity Brewers

February 14, 2020

In this series, we’ll be chatting with local brewmasters about their beers, the local craft brewing scene, and what every visitor should do while they’re here.

There are breweries big and small on the Ale Trail of The Palm Beaches. Then there’s Prosperity Brewers, a nano-brewery – even smaller than a microbrewery – that lives by the credo “go small or go home.”

Situated among designers and creative workspaces in a warehouse district known as ROC Urban in Boca Raton, Prosperity has an intimate, 3.5-barrel brewhouse that allows them to brew about 110 gallons per batch. Brewing “for a family, not an army” gives them flexibility to produce small batches and play with interesting flavors and twists on classic styles. Their menu is divided into the “Usual Suspects,” like their Intra-KOLSCH-tal Kolsch, and “Here and There” options, like their Jack Talk Thai Guava Sour – both of which are featured on ever-changing taps alongside a handful of guest beers.   

 
Dominick “DP” Peri is co-founder of Prosperity Brewers. After working in the hospitality industry for many years, he turned from his passion for wine to the calling of artisan ales. Intrigued by the craft beer movement after working with Cisco Brewers in Nantucket, his curiosity piqued upon discovering the San Diego beer scene in 2014. Soon after, he began the project of Prosperity Brewers with co-founder Ken Gross, and by 2017 the two were brewing in their current space.
