Owner description: Located in historical Cape Canaveral Florida, Florida Beer Company is Florida's leading craft brewery. A true pioneer in the craft beer industry, Florida Beer Company has been operating in Brevard County Florida since 1997. In 2005 we merged Indian River Brewery of Melbourne, FL, Ybor City Brewing of Tampa, FL, Key West Brewery of Key West and Miami Brewing of Miami FL into what today is Florida Beer Company. In 2013 Florida Beer Company opened our operations in Cape Canaveral at an old Chrysler Space Operations plant. The brewery is minutes away from the all cruise terminals at Port Canaveral and easily accessible by a short bus or taxi ride. Our Visitor Center and Tap Room provides an opportunity to see our brewery in operation. Our beautiful Visitor Center features over 100 feet of plate glass windows giving the visitor a panoramic view of the entire brewery. The brewery features modern craft brewing equipment and technologies openly on display for visitors to view. Florida Beer Company products have been recognized by dozens of prestigious awards from local, national and international competitions. The brewery produces 28 different styles of Ales, Lagers and Ciders. At any give time visitors will find 12 to 14 different products available at the tasting room. Private tours of the plant are available by special arrangement. Plant tours require proper dress - no open toe shoes or high heels, safety glasses must be worn. 16 and older only in plant. Children are welcome accompanied by parent, 21 and older to drink or purchase beer and cider - photo ID is required. We look forward to your visit!

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I tasted a few of Florida Beer's brews while at the World Beer Festival in Raleigh, NC and was very impressed. While vacationing in Florida, we took a day trip to Cocoa Beach. Ten minutes after we settled in, a huge storm rolled up, so we decided to head indoors and check out their new facility just a few miles away. Their current address is on their Facebook page (I see a lot of complaints about people ending up at the older location). It was a Friday around noon (when they opened), so there wasn't much going on but the facility was wonderful. Clean, open, lots of seating, cool bar, atmosphere, etc... The staff and few patrons that were there at the time were very friendly! They had lots of nice, big tv screens that could be seen from anywhere. Not only were there sports but they had a couple screens with all kinds of hilarious beer related trivia that kept even my teenage daughter entertained! I would love to go back on a weekend and/or evening, when it might be a little more bustling. :-) Most importantly, the beer is WONDERFUL. I was already a fan of Devil's Triangle but decided to try the Swamp Ape and was equally impressed! And, you can buy a six pack or so to take home with you if you wish, which is great if you're from out-of-state like me because it's currently only available in Florida (to the best of my knowledge.)

“Recommend the Kelly's Cider”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

A local brewery, lots of great beers, but I recommend the Kelly's Cider, especially the Raspberry Cider when you can find it. The location on Route 1, in Melbourne, did offer a tasting room upstairs, which we really enjoyed, but I think that has recently been moved to a facility in Titusville, sadly.

“Stop - Don't go....”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

We made a special trip to the Florida Beer Company last week while we were vacationing in the Melbourne area. We checked the website before we went. Much to our surprise - IT WAS CLOSED! There was a sign on the door that said they were in the process of moving to Cape Canaveral. In this day and age there is no excuse for the website not to be updated.
