a must stop in central florida. owner/brewer brad has a wonderfully comfortable and clean area to share his beer with the world in. the regulars are about as nice a bunch as exists anywhere. canít say enough good things about this place.
Lagniappe Brewing Co. is just your basic small brewery with a decent sized, basic tasting room. The big attraction is, well, the beer. The beer is made there and fresh. I had a flight of six 4 oz+ for $8.25. The best of the bunch was their IPA, but all where good. They have their regulars, red ale, porter, IPA and they also make one off brews. Today the had a double IPA which was unique but still tasty in its own way. They had a menu of snacks, but not what I would consider real food.
Lagniappe doesnít run real late hours and the location is on the side of a small strip mall - not the best ambiance, but you are there for the beer, right? Also, Minneola is pretty far West of Orlando -- not someplace you would just drive by unless you lived out there. If you are up for a roadtrip or just close by, I highly suggest stopping in for whatever they have on tap.
Brad makes a few products and does so very predictably. While this isnít the biggest brewery, they are expanding with some larger fermenters as the distributor sells more product.
Overall the beer is designed for more of a mass market than some other breweries, but for the location itís a nice departure from the BL and Corona scene.
The state wonít let them have food, so thatís the reason that there isnít any at this location. Blame Florida. All of the delivery places know where he is an menus are there for the asking.
This is a nice little new brewery just northwest of Orlando. As others have stated, from the outisde it looks industrial in a small strip mall of off a semi major road (not at all far from the turnpike though). From the inside it very much has a local bar scene vibe. A bar area with, I donít know, 6-8 stools along with more casual tables and chairs comprise of the comfortable, albeit limited seating. Very much a casual relaxing atmosphere that I enjoy. Some sort of sporting event is usually on. No food that Iím aware of. Reasonable draft prices with a sampler option. 6 packs to go too which you can mix and match if you like. Friendly staff. The beer is pretty solid too, although nothing really standout as of yet. I like the place and definitely recommend you stop by if in the Orlando area.
Brad and Dane are very friendly. While there is not much in the area, itís a great place to spend a few hours drinking really nice beer and talking to the locals. As of my last visit there was not a lot in the way of food. It is a must visit for us when in Orlando, though. Dane is very warm towards beer enthusiasts and on our 2nd visit gave us his original Afterglow IPA tap head. There are not any "big beers" yet, but we have been very impressed with the taste and consistency of almost every style of beer they produce. Being from South Florida we love the Summer Ale, which is brewed with coconut
Nice little neighborhood brewpub. The owners are very friendly and usually around to talk about their passion. The brews are pretty tasty, and of course extremely fresh.
The brews are very reasonably priced, and you can purchase 5 8oz brews for $10.
Nice place to spend and afternoon.
Small tap room in a burb of Orlando. All the beers the brewer makes are on tap and most available for take out. The owners are great people always come out and chat and have a brew. Food consists of chips. Itís like a townie bar with craft beer.
Location in small industrial area on Center st.
Inside is very cozy and clean with some coffee tables and sofas to sit and enjoy the beer.
There is a bar that fits about 6 people and all the beers are on tap. A glass window gives view on the brewing equipment.
Not much ambiance to speak of, some laid back classic rock and a few locals enjoying a beer. Food consists of popcorn and chips and pizza delivery. They have beer for sale. Overall the samplers are fairly priced with 3, 8oz glass for 6$
Brad was available to chat about his beers. He is doing some good things there, and he deserves a better distribution outside the Orlando area.
Nice location close to road 50, just a little out of way from I4 Tpa-Orl highway. Surroundings are nice with the lake nearby and good scenic route 50 back to Tampa.
