Meet The Imbeciles

Imbecile:  noun – a fool, an idiot 


What happens when 4 fools come together with common traits? 

-Fools for great music 

-Fools for great craft beer 

-Fools for great fellowship 

-Fools for charitable causes 

The result is The Imbeciles!  Blackadder Brewing Company’s house band.   

Late 2022 at Blackadder Brewing Company, 2 of our bartenders, a consummate regular, and the son of 

the founders of Blackadder came to the realization that:  

-they all played instruments, 

-shared a love for craft brews, 

-enjoyed a wide range of great music, and 

-they wanted to bring good to the greater Gainesville community.   

Out of these shared passions, The Imbeciles were born. 

Once a month, you can come hear The Imbeciles play for free at Blackadder Brewing Company.  

The band accepts no compensation – they simply ask that if you’re having a good time – please donate to the 

Blackadder charity of the month.  

Review our Events calendar and join us for a fun evening of musical jams, great craft beer, and a little 

splash of musical theater – all to support great local charities.
