GROVE ROOTS STORY
Grove Roots’ story focuses on our city, Winter Haven, FL, for its strong connection to the citrus industry. Over the years, we have seen a steady decline in the industry as groves are slowly disappearing. Grove Roots’ goal is to reclaim the persona of the lost citrus acres and keep the historical roots alive in central Florida. GRB will focus on preserving the old Florida culture by providing the flavor and story of the citrus industry through the beers we serve.
