Brewmaster

Josh Wilson | Chief Operating Officer & Brewmaster
Josh has been a home brewer for 25 years. He’s been sharing his home brew with family, friends and local beer enthusiasts. Josh has been perfecting his craft with hopes of sharing his beer with others. Recently, a distributor encouraged him to take his hobby and passion a step further and accomplish his goal of sharing his craft. Now he is living his dream crafting beer at Big Top Brewing Company’s 6,000-square-foot, 30-barrel, locally owned and operated, facility in Sarasota, Florida.

History

For years Brewmaster Josh Wilson has been crafting great beers in Sarasota, Florida and for years his friends have been enjoying his art. It made complete sense to form Big Top Brewing Company to bring those artfully crafted beers to everyone. When we started Big Top Brewing Company, there were no craft breweries in the Sarasota area and we set out to fix that. We have a great town, with a great history, and the only thing missing was that great local beer.

We wanted to compliment Sarasota’s historical associations with The Ringling Circus, performing arts, great architecture, the best art and design schools and world renown tourism. The best way we could do that was to craft beer that our home town can be proud of.

With brewing, tasting, and entertaining happening at our location on Porter Way in Sarasota, we plan to continue the tradition of the arts and help Sarasota add beer town to its identity. Come step under our big top and see for yourself.
