On Friday, our group visited the Orlando Brewing Company, which is Florida’s only certified organic brewery. All of the beer is brewed right on the premises, so it is as fresh as can be. There are more than a dozen beers on draft in their Tap Room and even more in bottles. Free tours of the brewery are offered daily.
When we arrived, Orlando Brewing Company’s President (and self-proclaimed beer snob), John Creek, offered us a beer and a personalized tour of his brewery.
The Tap Room had a ton of beers to chose from, so I asked John for his recommendation. I told him that I didn’t like super hoppy beers, so he suggested the Eminent Domain, a smooth Scottish Ale. It was delicious! I was a happy gal!
Orlando Brewing Company is one of nine certified organic breweries in the country. This means that the ingredients used in brewing their beers are grown without insecticides, bioengineering, genetically modified organisms, sewage sludge or irradiation.
Orlando Brewing Company’s organic ales and lagers are already available in select bars and restaurants across Central Florida with many more coming aboard. Lucky ducks! Sadly, they don’t ship to Boston.
For the locals (or those visiting Orlando), the Orlando Brewing Company offers a ton of fun events, including Beer 30 when all beers are $2 on the 3oth of each month and Dogs Day Out when well-behaved dogs are invited to the brewery. I know Murphy would LOVE to visit!
