Lost Shirt Brewing Company
would be our last visited while in Florida and smallest of all. their brewing
and 10 taps tap room are in the back of a building with a brew supply store in
the front. it is a microbrew with that being done in an open section of the back
of tap room “see pics”. room for 8 at the bar with seats and tables for about 30
people. it’s quite cozy and laid back, I do believe that a food trailer was just
out their door. these were the brews we enjoyed

Intracoastal Brewing Company

Intracoastal Brewing Company is where I would visit with my daughter, this Brewery would be in two buildings with a canopy connecting the two together, one was a set inside Tap room the other one was the main part of the brewery also with a tap system that would cater to outdoor people enjoying their Brews. they seemed so nice and cater to so many different people dogs’ if they were friendly and kid’s they had an outdoor area between the buildings that had artificial turf where the families with kids could set in the grass and play games while enjoying their Brews and family! these were the brews we enjoyed Bone Yard IPA – Imperial / Double, Primordial Double IPA, Hop Cousteau IPA – Imperial / Double New England, Lost In the Haze IPA – American, Cucumber Mojito Sour – Ale, Rye the Wave Pale Ale – New England, Dragon Point IPA IPA – American.

American Icon Brewery

American Icon Brewery
would be our next visit, with some very good friends from when we were
teenagers. we met up with Alice and Dave at their house and got a tour and then
went to the brewery to have a great time and some tasty brews and some great
food. this Brewery was built inside of an old industrial electric generating
plant. and with our visit near darkness of night at that time of the year the
pictures didn’t come out that great because we got more into reminiscing on old
times than keeping details clear but here’s a list of the Brews we tasted. The Professor, Salem’s Rope, Juice Box, Island Hopper Double

Hell ‘n Blazes Brewing Company

Hell ‘n Blazes Brewing Company would be our next stop, it was in the well-traveled old section of downtown Melbourne but on a side section, and I think it was an old hardware store, before becoming a brewery. they would be a microbrewery with a pub type atmosphere serving food and appetizers, wings and sandwiches and I’m not sure I think they make pizzas. the place was of fair size in the front tap room area, and they had a casual place in the rear as you can see from the pictures where you could eat and drink and play some games along with quite a few screens for watching sports, I do believe. they had 9 to 12 taps of their beer at the time of our visit. the hospitality was great, and these are the Brews we tasted on our visit. Huggins Hefeweizen, causeway IPA, strawberry milkshake IPA, German chocolate cake Porter, dingleberry, Georgia found peach Hefeweizen, cranny’s last supper, Andy’s Poppin pills.

Bugnutty Brewing Company

Our next stop is Bugnutty Brewing Company, a small micro-Brewery with a pub type atmosphere with seating up to 40 patrons? it’s located at the end of a shopping strip of different stores. they had 17 taps pouring their beers and a small what they called pub grub menu of food, and wine but I never got a chance to find out whether they made the wine or somebody else. this would be another great place to go cuz it’s open from 2 p.m. everyday of the week except the Lord’s day Sunday and it would open at 1 p.m. these were the brews we enjoyed Charlie don’t surf, Resilience Brute County Proud IPA, Pliny The Punisher, Flakey Blonde, 007 Golden EyePa, Suzi’s Red Belly Ale, Dark Matter Black IPA, Pineapple Shandy.

Florida Beer Company

Florida Beer Company would be a large Brewery that distributes I think even up here to the Northeast, I know I’ve had their ape something? ipa before. the brewery was very spacious with a circular bar where the tap handles hung all the way around its big central column. the brewing you could see around that circle behind the glass windows. not sure about the tours for the brewing part but they did have hours all week long that started at 1 p.m. so if you’re retired like I am you can get out and visit before the crowd comes. they had a flight of four and pint pours we enjoyed, Key West Sunset Ale, Surfing Santa Ho Ho Hoppy wheat IPA, Hurricane Reef Pilsner, Hurricane Reef IPA, Highlander Harvest Pumpkin Scotch, Carib Lager, Scotch Ale, Mackeso Carrot Cake Stout, Mackeson XXX Milk Stout, Ybor Gold Amber ale.

Cocoa Beach Brewing Company

Cocoa Beach Brewing Company is our next visit and very close to the beach, it would be the smallest I’ve been two so far. located in a two-bedroom house with the beer being brewed in a one-car garage, there’s seating for five at the bar with maybe 4 taps, but only two beers were pouring at the time of our visit. there was a table with 6 seats we used, and a couch that would fit three to four people near the front door along with sacks of grain. The two brews Von Braun ale a very tasty brown ale and Key Lime was light and crisp on lime flavors. Hopefully in their near future they will have more brews, but I hope it stays small and in place it was quaint and rememberable!

Tomoka Brewing Company

Tomoka Brewing Company is our 3rd stop which would be a good size Brewery that would accommodate about 70 or more. this Brewery would be in Port Orange, FL near Daytona on our way to visit more friends on the east coast. it has a spacious bar and table seating and we both did a flight of 4 and a pint and had a great time and delicious brews along with a full menu of delicious food, and the staff knew everything and would let you know if you asked. another Brewery worth a visit and are so friendly.
