Great place to try some new beers or revisit your old favorites.
Some of the beers he has you can’t even get at large establishments. These include beers from well-established breweries as well as homebrews made by the area’s brewing greats.
A food review is applicable since the Cajun boiled peanuts (boiled in Chimay beer when I was there last -the beer was repurposed after accidentally being frozen) were amazingly tasty. If you’re not a fan of Cajun peanuts do not worry as they were just hot enough that you could keep eating them but not start sweating.
The atmosphere is inviting and there are many wonderful antiques to look at while sipping a beer that cannot be purchased anywhere else in the state of Florida.
Service is top notch at this establishment. The owner will take care of you like you both have been friends for years.
Value is great! Prices of the beer, peanuts, and antiques are fair and I felt like I got a great deal for my money.
A draft selection of over 11 beers and others in bottles make this place a go to any time you’re thirsty.
Next time you’re in Mount Dora I highly suggest checking the place out, grabbing a beer, and looking at the antiques
Mermaid Juice is a uniquely wonder place located in the heart of Mount Dora. The atmosphere when you first walk in is old world charm. The charm not only flows from the antiques and beer, but from Daneaux Narrow, the owner. You are instantly invited into Daneaux’s word of craft beer and are treated like his oldest friend.
Daneaux’s vision of a cleverly disguised a craft beer bar in the middle of an antique store is pulled off amazingly. This gives the bar a great character and depth.
Moving past the vintage items you’ll quickly notice there at 17+ active beer taps all with craft beer. Each tap usually moves pretty fast so there is always a great and varying selection of draft beer. If your lucky, you’ll get a well aged vintage craft beer on tap. Just recently Daneaux was serving a 2010 Southern Teir Mocha Stout.
If you can make you way through the taps you’ll notice there are dozens of craft beers bottled. Many of these bottles are aged or rare. Most frankly are hard to find anyplace else.
I encourage anyone who reads this to venture down to Mermaid Juice and stay for a while. You’ll find your self going back again and again.
This is such a great place! Quaintly unique and perfect, it’s an antique shop and my favorite place to enjoy a craft brew. An odd combination that really works! The owner is a wonderful host and is very knowledgeable of all craft beers as well as the staff are super friendly & helpful!
They often have fun events as well as live music! I highly recommend this great hang out to kick back and relax while sipping one of the many brews on tap or from the wide variety of bottled beer in the cooler.
I have to visit this place AT LEAST once a week!
Mermaid Juice is a little hidden gem about a half hour northwest of Orlando. Dan, the owner, is very friendly and instantly makes you feel at home. I was very impressed with his draft and bottle selection, stuff you can’t find anywhere else, and the prices were very reasonable. He gave us generous portions to taste and sample beers that we were interested in. I will definitely be a regular here and highly recommend visiting.
What a find! This place puts Mount Dora on the craft beer map. Great selection of beers, 22 tap and what seems like and endless selection of bottles and cans.
It’s like the compact non conforming version of World Of Beer.
The place is super cool with unique character that really makes it shine.
On any given day you can walk in an find a 4yr barrel aged imperial stout on draft, the next day it could be fresh 120 minute or even a rare nitro offering from a local Florida brewery.
Check it out! you will not be disappointing.
