Been there in March 2003. I think is one of the places that I regret the least. But in Orlando dryland was still good news.

I know this place closed and I do miss it (a great reason to get to the airport early!). Terminal B has a pub with Shipyard on Tap, if you are looking for a decent pint.

Stopped in here on numerous business trips to Orlando starting in June 1998. If it is closed, that sucks. It was a nice respite.

This place is NOT CLOSED! (8/11/04) but it is being renovated. It is in the Delta terminal at MCO and is worth a walk if you have a long layover - but only for the beer. I was expecting a lot as this brewery is famous in Maine and is a true Micro. But the beer was very mediocre for a micro. They offer Old Thumperís Bitter Ale, Export Ale, a Light Ale (blah) and a seasonal. The Old Thumperís is not worth the $6 they charge you and has a sour malty taste I canít quite place. Go with the Export Ale as it is the best of the bunch but still not stunning. The food selection SUCKS and the wait staff is overworked so order a refill before you get to the bottom of your beer! All in all, it is certainly the best beer in the airport (or in most airports) but at $6 for a 20 oz., it is way overpriced.

This was a pleasant surprise upon landing in Orlando (although we didn't actually stop until the return trip), especially after thinking this place was closed. Billed as "The world's first airport microbrewery!".

Other than tailgating, waiting for an airplane is about the only thing that justifies drinking beer at 9AM. This bar is located in the Delta section of the Orlando airport in the 60-99 terminal. Being an airport, it is loud and everyone at the bar was smoking. Luckily there are a lot of tables away from the bar itself. Another pleasant surprise was that they offer a 4-beer sampler for around $6 (5oz. samples). You can try the Goat Island Light, Old Thumper, Export Ale and their current seasonal (I had the Winter Ale).

The bad news is the bartender informed me they may not be there much longer. When the contract is up there is a good chance something else will move into their location. Overall the beers were slightly above average, and they also stock the usual macros. I was happy that someone else who started with a macro tried the sampler after seeing my wife and I order one. Worth checking out on your trip to Orlando!
