Meet Chris and Sissy Hart.

Sissy is a native of Gainesville and Chris has been a resident since coming to UF in 1987.

Brewing beer has been a part of their lives for nearly two decades.

 Prior to opening the brewery, Chris managed the local homebrew supply shop. He is a BJCP judge.

Collectively, they have earned over 30 medals in homebrew competitions throughout Florida and the US.

   They won their first professional gold medal at the Best Florida Beer Professional 2019 Competition followed by a silver medal win in the Best Florida Beer Professional 2020 Competition. 

Their love of creating craft beer and sharing it with others led to the founding of Blackadder Brewing. 

They look forward to sharing their award winning beers with the Gainesville community.  Cheers!
