This brewery offers craft brews with a hometown twist, selling organic-style ingredients.

It is the only USDA Certified Organic brewery in the state, according to the tourism office of Orlando.

Products:

They sell 24 taps, most are reserved for the brewery's own beer but they do have "guest" beers on tap from other craft brewers in Florida.

The brewery creates its product according to the German Purity Law of 1516 (the Reinheitsgebot). The German Purity Law dictates beers should only be brewed with four ingredients:

  • water
  • hops
  • yeast
  • malted barley

Tour guides share how brewers manipulate the quantity of ingredients to capture the precise essence of the brews.

In addition, brewers also include organic ingredients.

Favorite Events:

Locals and tourists enjoy the weekly special live music events on Fridays and Saturdays. Another popular event called "Beer 30" occurs every 30th of the month, when all beers are $2 off the regular price.

Customers:

Dog lovers can bring their pets, if they are well behaved and don't exhibit out-of-control behaviors.

History:

The brewery started its establishment just after the turn of the century on Gore Street. In October 2004, John Cheek bought the brewery with Ed Canty, founder of the Florida Brewer's Guild. Additional owners included Gene Lohri and Stan Richards.

Atmosphere:

With a casual atmosphere, the brewery offers a collection of menus from local restaurants that are able to conduct food delivery to the brewery. Pizzas are a popular favorite for a group of customers or large family settings.

Price Point:

Beers sell between $5 to $9, depending on type of beer. The stouts and seasonal brews sell a little higher for its exceptional tastes.

Distribution:

The brews can be found in more than 200 locations in Florida. About 100 bars in Gainsville, Tampa and Jacksonville sell the brews from Orlando Brewery.
