Cigar City Brewing
Favorite Beer: Jai Alai IPA
From their year-round beers to their specialty brews, Cigar City never fails to impress us. The quality of their beer is what made them a national brewery over the last few years. They have a cute little tasting room and offer tours of the brewery every day but Sunday. You won’t regret it!
Favorite Beer: Neon White IPA
We’re not usually into as many floral, mosaic beers, but M.I.A does them right! Designed to be enjoyed outside, M.I.A’s array of beers satisfy just about anyone’s cravings (and thirst). Like the intention of their beer consumption, the energy of the brewery is very active, hosting events fairly regularly.
Due South Brewing Company
Location: Boynton Beach
Favorite Beer: Category 5 IPA
Due South is a beautiful beach-themed brewery that offers everything you can ask for. Seriously, they even have competitors’ beers available! They have short but at the same time pretty extensive tours and lots of great food too. Due South is more of an afternoon trip, rather than a quick stop.
Wynwood Brewing Company
Favorite Beer: Lock On
A small, intimate taproom with lesser-known beers might just be what you’re looking for. The constant cycling of beers on tap ensures you’ll never grow bored and the daily specials keep your budget in check. The variety of blends is what really stood out to us, this stop is more for the flavors than the experience.
Deadly Sins Brewing
Location: Winter Park
Favorite Beer: The Grove
The atmosphere is among our favorites here at Deadline Sins. It’s a very active crowd that loves to run on Thursdays and have a fun array of live music playing on the weekends. Pet-friendly, with a relaxation guarantee, you can always count on a fun time. Oh yeah, the beer is pretty tasty too!
3 Daughters Brewing
Location: St. Petersburg
Favorite Beer: Whiskey Porter
We can appreciate 3 Daughters for their unique selection of beers. Most places have the essentials, then a few different styles for variety, but 3 Daughters totally dances to their own drum. We particularly enjoy their stouts and porters. In addition to the drinks, they have a really solid food selection to the point that they’re basically a restaurant.
Green Room Brewing, LLC
Location: Jacksonville Beach
Favorite Beer: Double Overhead
The Green Room is among one of the more inclusive communities. They hose everything from running clubs, to ping pong tournaments all in the name of fun. Their seasonal beers are pretty special, definitely check out their sour and gose beers. The taproom is a BYOF and is dog-friendly, so feel free to have a family picnic with some of the best beer in the area!
7venth Sun Brewing
Favorite Beer: America FYA
The small, cozy taproom is often pretty relaxed – perfect for trying some of the awesome beers. We admit 7venth Sun is probably one of the less eventful breweries on our list, but it’s not bad to take a break. Bottom line, the beer here is worth all of your attention!
Idyll Hounds Brewing Company
Location: Santa Rosa Beach
Favorite Beer: Divide & Conch’r
Idyll Hounds is all about getting some sun with your brew! They open bright and early, so you can drive down to the beach afterwards – we consider Idyll Hounds more of a stop, but a fun one at that.
Riptide Brewing Company
Favorite Beer: Barrel Aged Dark Sour
An all-around ball of fun, Riptide will take you away! It has just about everything you look for in a solid brewery, from live music to food trucks, games, and oh yeah… great beer! They have a really cool, tight community that’s always down to have a lot of fun!
