But did you know:

Mathews Brewing Company, located at 130 South H Street, will officially open Jan. 13 [TODAY at noon] in the former Lake Worth Herald building. The building was originally built in 1969 by Karl J. Easton, Jr. and Helen B. Easton, owners of The Lake Worth Herald. The building has been completely renovated by the brewery.

Here are two excerpts from the news in the
Herald today about Mathews Brewing Co.:

David Mathews, the owner of Mathews Brewing Company states, “being a small independent craft brewery allows for more hands-on brewing and greater control of the beer’s flavor, aroma and drinkability”.
     There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony beginning at noon featuring live entertainment, food trucks, free souvenir glasses and specially timed releases of beer throughout the day.
     Mathews chose Lake Worth because of its character, diversity and his ability to work seamlessly with city officials and staff. Mathews spent the past year fully renovating the building containing the brewery and adjacent property.

And by the way. . .

Have you seen the review by reporter Nicole Danna? She is one of South Florida’s top-notch food, restaurant, and craft beer reporters now at the New Times Miami:

Mathews Brewing Co. owner and brewer Dave Mathews says he originally planned to launch his business in West Palm Beach [emphasis added] but was drawn south thanks to Lake Worth’s “funky, cool vibe” and the city’s business-friendly atmosphere.
     “Now I’m hoping to lead the charge in revitalizing this area by motivating other like-minded small businesses to come here,” Mathews says,

“I see nothing but potential.”
