Civil Society Introduces a Food Concept to Their Jupiter Location

A gem of Abacoa in Jupiter, Civil Society Brewing has finally made the illustrious decision to expand their menu to include bites that complement their craft brews with their new food concept, Eat Social.

After a whirlwind of a start (two years after they opened, they were named No. 5 New Brewery in the World by and travelled the world for beer events), they’ve hunkered down and focused on feeding — literally and figuratively — their local market.

Pizza, wings and beer — who would’ve thought they’d go together? But really, we don’t mind that it’s a classic pairing. If anything, that’s exactly why we do like it — they gave us exactly what we want.

Civil Society in Jupiter adds food offerings with their Eat Social kitchen.

Owners Karl and Chris Volstad and Evan Miller knew what they wanted, too, when they went looking for the perfect additions to their menu. Karl shared, “Food was always something we were looking to add. We needed to find the right fit to complement the beer we are making. We were able to find that with Bradley Grace, who we hired as head chef. We were big fans of his food, and his ideas matched our concept.”

Bradley was the owner of the former butcher and sandwich shop, Grace’s Fine Foods, before they sadly closed. They also graced the pages of our magazine. Now, we get to welcome him back to our table and look forward to his creations.

So far, bestselling pies include the Hot Pep (house tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, crispy pepperoni and hot honey) and the Buffalo Chicken Pizza (buffalo cream sauce, fresh mozzarella, spicy roasted chicken and blue cheese). The pizza and wings are baked in a brick oven and all sauces are housemade with the freshest ingredients.

The brick oven pizza feeds into the urban concept created by the subway tile decor and concrete floor, but their house-made sauce and family ties lend more of a connectivity. A perfect combination, kind of like pizza and beer.

For those of you in West Palm Beach wondering if Civil Society will be adding food options at their location further south, we can’t confirm anything, but the ellipses in Karl’s response when questioned about the idea left room for interpretation (and hope).
