What is Mocama?
Mocama (mo-comma) is the name chosen by the Spanish to identify the unique Timucua dialect spoken in a narrow band of coastal territory that stretches from the mouth of the Altamaha River near St. Simons Island, GA south to St. Augustine, Florida. The historical translation of the word Mocama is the ocean, or more succinctly stated by a translator, big water where the sun is born.
Mocama is more than a place.
Founded by four friends, Mocama Beer Company was born out of a shared desire to brew distinctive beers in a unique space on Amelia Island. We found home a few blocks from historic downtown Fernandina Beach in the former Lasserre Motor Company building. Originally constructed in 1954, the 18,000 square foot building has been transformed into an elegant mid-century taproom.
