It’s tough to find a better combination than warm Florida weather and a cold beer. Across the sunshine state, breweries of all kinds are serving up their own unique beers that have residents raising a glass all year round. Here’s a look at five of our favorite spots to grab a cold one:
Wicked Barley 📍Jacksonville
This national award-winning brewery always features 20 taps of incredible house-brewed beers, ciders and meads. Thanks to its stunning waterfront location making it accessible by boat, Wicked Barley stands out as a must-visit hangout in Jacksonville.
Crooked Can 📍Winter Garden
Located just 20 minutes west of Orlando, Crooked Can has a reputation for high quality craft beers, like their “Up Yonder New England IPA.” It’s located inside Plant Street Market, a charming hall full of local food vendors and craft makers that make this spot a mainstay in Central Florida.
Cigar City 📍Tampa
Cigar City is recognized across the country for their famous “Jai Alai IPA.” This brewery blends the flavors of Florida’s citrus and sun, while paying homage to the cigar industry that Tampa was built upon.
