Cocoa Beach Brewing Company is just a short walk from the beach. Upon entering, it seems as if I just meandered into someoneís den. The place is cozy and small, with a leather couch, table for eight, and bar seating for four to five. There are two flat screen televisions, both set to sports channels.
The owners, Chris and Tracy, are very nice folks. We had a nice conversation regarding beer and the craft beer industry.
A big downside to the place is that they are unable to meet the demand of the customers. They were completely sold out of bombers, and I had to wait about 20 minutes for a full pour of the oatmeal stout, their most highly sought after beer, as the keg ran out immediately after I arrived.
While I thought the oatmeal stout was delicious, I really didnít care for the English IPA. Actually, I found it to be quite reprehensible and was surprised that the same brewer could make such a good oatmeal stout.
There is no food available from the brewery. However, you can order food into the bar from a number of local eateries, which is convenient.
Beers were $5, which isnít cheap, but Iíve seen worse. I hope this brewery will continue to improve, as it has potential. Itís worth a visit if youíre in the area.

While up visiting friends in Melbourne, FL drove over to Cocoa Beach to check out the small operation. When we walked in there were three people at the bar and left about 30 minutes later. Being the only two people left we struck up a conversation with Gregg, who was doing the pouring. He was very knowledgeable and I was able to have a great talk with him about craft beer. He even wrote a note for my fiancee and I to give to Vinny Cilurzo when we head over to Russian River next year for a personal tour. Overall a good, and surprising, experience.

Wonderful discovery (after leaving a disappointing visit to Florida Beer Co.). Located in one of the oldest houses (refurbished) in Cocoa Beach, this charmiing, inviting tap room also has a back porch. Only 4 beers on tap, but they are a MICRO brewery. All 4 beers were outstanding and I bought growlers to bring home. Friendly, very knowledgeable staff.

Beach house bar feel here. Great service. 4 beers on tap. Hope shutting down the space shuttle does not set them back.

This place is only steps from the beach. Tiny little brewpub, I wonder how rammed it gets on a semi busy night? The lady behind the counter was very friendly and is intimate with whatís being brewed here. I like how they embrace all that is NASA here. There were live space walks being shown on a pretty good size flat screen. Would be a primo spot to watch some sort of launch at the beach and then head here for a few brews while waiting for traffic to settle down. I hope to swing by here again some day.

Wow. Interesting place. This little home has been converted into a brewery with a living room and a den with 4 taps. They have CCBC beer and a guest tap or two on at any time. For this beach community, this is a great addition. Family that owns this place are very warm and accommodating, and are great at talking beer. Great place- I canít wait to try more from this up-and-coming little brewery.

A cool little nanobrewery whith a designated pub-like tasting room. 3 taps on during my visit, due to gas problems. Service was super friendly, the only beer i tried from the, was the stout, delicious and they had Midas Touch for a guest and SNPA. A must in the area because its so cool.

Seems to be a very small operation, you never know what beer will be available and for how long. Chris was great and very personable. We got to try about 4 ounces of the double IPA, excellent (if Iím remembering correctly it was 126 IBUs) before the keg blew. Key Lime Cerveza was a nice beach beer, the blonde was average. Looking forward to going back
