Wicked Barley Brewing Company serves (in their own words) Naughty Ales for Noble Souls, and we can get on board with that. The brewery is known for its core collection of beers, including a gorgeous German-style lager called The Left Leg, and a double IPA called the Eradicator, an apt name if ever there was one. Throughout the year, the brewery hosts events including Hawaiian-style luaus, fish fry’s, holiday brunches, and more, as people from around the city drive and boat to Wicked Barley for these events. Yes, we said boat, because the brewery has its boat dock where you can hook up and get lunch before setting sail again.
Cold craft beer is a perfect accompaniment to pretty much every part of Florida life – be it a big game, an afternoon at the beach, or even a rare rainy day. In fact, beer connoisseurs from around the country continue to flock to the Sunshine State for its fantastic brews, many of which have strong citrus flavors inspired by the orange groves ubiquitous in this part of the world.
These breweries are found in stunning locations, pumping out classic and curiosity beer for the thirsty public. Some of our favorite breweries also serve traditional pub grub like burgers and loaded fries, while others partner with local food trucks to serve hungry customers. On weekends, most breweries are the spot to hang out to listen to live bands from the local area or play a few lawn games in a beer garden. No matter what beer of choice and vibe you’re looking for, the best breweries in Florida are waiting to welcome you inside. Or outside. Or both! Yes, definitely both.
