This large production brewery has a large, new tap room, complete with a couple dozen taps, six or so devoted to ciders. They stayed open late during a paint nite so I was able to stay a while and sample some of their one-offs/non-regular offerings which were quite good.
Under-staffed on a Tuesday afternoon when the large circular bar was completely full. Fortunately, there were plenty of free tables and the server was efficient when he finally got around to us. Lots of beer choices with most better than expected (i.e., average or better). Beer to go as singles, 4- and 6-packs, growlers and crowlers.
Not too far from the space station area. Large industrial hall taproom inside the quite big brewery. Plenty of parking place. This place has quite many tourist groups visiting from Orlando and/or cruises. So flights available. 8 beer sampler for 12 USD. Beers are not much to talk about. Service was friendly. Shop attached. The worth of visit for ticks.
This is for the new facility in Cape Canaveral, not the old one in Melbourne. Awesome tap room with cool nautical paintings and a big glass window that lets you see most of the production floor. Service was great, knew the beer well and were very accommodating. Selection was solid, all the beers they have from all the different imprints they supply, but nothing is that great. The only real game in town, so cool to see a production brewery making it there.
Finally made it over here while touring FL with markwise. Run down warehouse where there is a small beer bar and selection of bottles on the second floor overlooking the brewing operation. So this is where so many FL brewed pale lagers have been born. Hmmm. OK set-up here for sampling a few of their offerings on tap and they also do 32oz swing top growler fills too.

The tasting room is on the second floor overlooking the main warehouse of FL Beer Co. You can watch the guys making, bottling, or doing what FL Beer Co does to beer here. Off of the main drag and easy to find. The guy behind the bar knew a bit about beer but could answer no questions about FL Beer Co, what was in the tanks, if they were going to the festivals in the coming weeks or anything to that effect. He was very friendly and poured anything I wanted with a smile. I felt a bit overdressed in a t-shirt and shorts, and my shirt was not Guy Harvey or Jimmy Buffet. Very nice sampling of their beers.
Bored and nervous (how is that possible) teenager served us a few samples. I felt like he wanted to be anywhere else - as long as wasn’t serving beer to the likes of us. It was hot and stuffy up stairs with no AC. No brew knowledge flowed. Maybe four of their dozen or so brews were on tap. You could look over the rail at the brewery works, but there was no narration or signage to explain anything. We left with a mix bottle six pack of OK beer. They have bought out 5 or 6 Florida breweries. They maintain the labels but not the spirit.
Took a QUICK visit to this place. Orange painted warehouse with teal trim. Tasting room is upstairs. It was obvious I was an inconvenience to the guy I was making help me. They had three taps, and lots of bottles. I was ready to leave after my one single sample of beer. Which was really good BTW, because it was so fresh. So I asked if they did any mix bottle packs, "oh, sure we do." So let me get some of these here. "Oh not of those we don’t." OK, see ya bye. Value was good cause I left.
just like joekinty stated
