Although Orlando is known as a family-friendly theme park mecca, it isn't short on grown-up activities. For a great tour and beer tasting evening, consider Orlando Brewing and snag your cheap flights to Orlando.
After overcoming a string of startup difficult beginnings in the early 2000s, Orlando Brewing is now one of the city's finest local breweries serving up amazing craft beer for thirsty visitors and residents alike. One of the first craft beer breweries in the area, Orlando Brewing began brewing the highest quality brews using only organic ingredients, brewed according to the strict rules of the German Purity Law of 1516 which insists that beers are brewed with only water, hops, yeast, and malted barley. A far cry from food coloring and chemicals, the beer at Orlando Brewing has always been about preserving the craft. Certified as an organic brewery, the beers at Orlando Brewing became the first to be declared "Fresh from Florida," using only local, pesticide, petroleum, GMO, sewage, irradiation, and chemically free ingredients. Their amazing craft beer has become a local favorite, served up in over 100 Florida bar and restaurant locations.
Curious about this time honored tradition of brewing? Stop into their brewery for a free tour every Monday-Saturday at 6pm. A selection of 24 taps full of freshly brewed organic beer, cider, and wine are available at the taproom, including Organic Blonde, Red, Brown, and Pale Ales, a Blackwater Dry Porter, numerous IPAs, and Eagle Stout. Water and soft drinks are also available for your designated drivers. Free, local live music brings the taproom alive each Friday and Saturday night, and you can play darts, board games, life-sized Jenga, and other great games while enjoying the selection of organic craft beer.
