Our Story

Papá Panzú...

Panzú Brewery founders and siblings, Rosa Marte de Pacheco and Johan Marte, were born and raised in the Dominican Republic. It was there that their father founded and built a successful fruit pulp production company, in which Rosa and Johan were shareholders.

Papá Panzú, as their father was called by his grandchildren, taught his family strong business acumen, an appreciation of native flavours, and a deep love of beer. As Rosa and Johan started crafting their own brews, they started dreaming of opening a brewery. Their dream became a reality when they found an available space in downtown Mint Hill and landed on the opportunity to open the town’s first brewery.

Named in honor of their father, Panzú Brewery will bring the best of their heritage to a warm, inviting restaurant and brewery in the heart of Mint Hill.

The Brewery

The complementary pairing of a crisp craft beer and a delicious ceviche was once reserved for those who could travel to the Caribbean. No longer. Panzú Brewery is a welcoming craft brewery with a relaxed Caribbean vibe, reminiscent of a beachside resort, in the heart of Mint Hill, North Carolina. The company offers a full menu of craft beers, with something for every palate, and a menu of tapas inspired by the owners’ homeland, the Dominican Republic. Featuring fresh tropical fruits, pork, and delicious plantains, the Panzú Brewery’s menu of small plate dishes is as memorable as its selection of beers.

Panzú Brewery’s location, in Mint Hill’s thriving downtown, houses a brewery and restaurant, with both indoor and outdoor seating. The Company’s brewery is outfitted with a seven-barrel system that can produce 546 barrels annually. Panzú Brewery has seating for 62 guests indoors, and around 30 additional seats between its open front deck and back patio. Both the front deck and back patio will have outdoor heating equipment. Guests will receive table service, helping to create an intimate atmosphere.

Panzú’s artisan beers are made in a home-brew style, with distinctive flavours and aromas. The Brewery’s beers reflect the owners’ passion for the Caribbean and their exotic flavours will transport customers to this small slice of heaven. Panzú’s year-round products include New England and tropical IPAs; American, blonde and amber ales; wheat beer or porter/stout beer. Panzú will also incorporate seasonal flavours full of freshness and creativity. Panzú’s products are made with top-quality ingredients, from the variety of hops used on our beers to the exotic spices in our kitchen.

The Panzú tap room will also offer a variety of excellent wines, specially selected to balance with the flavours of its appetizers
