Grab a Central Florida Ale Trail map to check out Florida’s craft beer from DeLand to Orlando. The trail currently consists of 26 breweries, but continues to grow.
Orange County Brewers
- Orange County Brewers is Orlando’s only craft brewery located downtown. There are 9 beers on draft and 3 guest beers. Located inside of Orange Country Brewers is Pizza Bruno, offering wood fired pizza to take out or enjoy in the taproom.
Broken Strings Brewery
- Broken Strings Brewery merged with Black Cauldron Brewery to create Broken Cauldron Taproom. Broken Strings Brewery uses more hops, while Black Cauldron Brewery favors malts. There is outdoor seating, a large taproom, and board games. Note: the location no longer serves food.
- We recommend the unique Joliet Blueberry Milkshake IPA with blueberries, vanilla, and lactose, and Penny Lane Strawberry Blonde. This blonde ale with strawberries beer might knock our all time favorite Strawberry Blonde from Border Brewing Company in Kansas City out of first place!
Brew Theory Brewery
- Brew Theory Brewery is opening soon. Holding a soft opening in March, this brewery should have operating house soon.
Ten 10 Brewing Company
- We give Ten 10 Brewing Company a score of 10/10. We recommend the Banchee Day Spa, a dry Irish stout with cassis, and our favorite, the Sundae Best, a neopolitian brown ale with vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry.
- The menu is limited, but the smoked items are prepared on the Big Green Egg, and we were so impressed by the Smoked Wings tossed in housemade buffalo sauce we placed a second order.
Dead Lizard Brewing Company
Dead Lizard Brewing is named after dead lizard found in a yard in the shape of their logo, the center of a yin-yang, representing zen and serendipity. We recommend the Jalapeno Citrus Cream-Sic-Ale, a cream ale with a kick. Visiting on a Friday, the brewery had live music in the large taproom, complimentary popcorn, and a game room.
Duff Brewery beer garden located in Universal Studios opens every day at 11:00am. There are 2 beers on draft: lite and dark.
