BRANDON — Three Palms Brewing recently was granted a wet zoning license and opened up its tasting room for business this month, allowing the fledgling Brandon brewery to sell beer and wine for on-premises consumption and package to go.

"This was the big next step for us," owner and brewer Randy Reaver said. "We're excited. The tasting room needed to be added as far as keeping a steady stream of cash flow coming in."

Because Three Palms was within 250 feet of a residential dwelling, Reaver had to apply for a permit. The hearing took place July 22, and Reaver received the official go-ahead Aug. 14.

"Any time you can taste the beer right at the brewery, it's more of a connection with the brewer," Reaver said. "We've been happy with the number of people who have come in to see us so far."

The tasting room's hours are from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Three Palms has a 20-tap system that will include three to five guest beers from other breweries.

The brewery will also feature food trucks at the 1509 Hobbs St. location. Go to for more information.

    The Hitman's Bodyguard is an assault tank on semi-automatic pilot, spraying jokes and bullets with only the ammo consistently hitting its targets. The irresistible teaming of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson might be even funnier if they missed once in a while.

    Samuel L. Jackson plays a master assassin testifying against a dictator, and Ryan Reynolds plays a bodyguard tasked with keeping him alive.
