Meet Our Head Brewer

Sean Taylor


Sean is passionate about brewing great beer for people to enjoy.  He’s won several awards for his brew, which utilizes as many local ingredients as possible.


Independent Republic Brewing Company is a Myrtle Beach microbrewery and beer garden along the banks of the Intracoastal Waterway. Head Brewer, Sean Taylor, is brewing up a selection of craft beers, inspired by the same spirit and independence as Horry County...South Carolina's 'Independent Republic' since the mid 1800's.

Long isolated geographically by many rivers and swamps, Horry County also has the reputation of conducting state business "independently" from South Carolina's other 45 counties. Horry County is proudly, the “Independent Republic”!
