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!

I was on a solo trip in Cocoa beach and it was a rainy day, so I figured I mine as well drink beer. I started with a 4 taster flight and then took the tour. The tour is $10, but you get a free flight of four and pint glass to take home. The tour leader was very informative... More

It's a little misleading from the outside, a somewhat austere building surrounded by a tall chain-link fence topped with barbed wire. But when you walk in, it's quite nice. The brewing vats are visible through big glass windows, in the middle is a huge circular bar. The were several excellent beers available (wish I could have tried more) and knowledgeable... More

Ok, I don't consider myself a beer snob, but as a home brewer and taster of over 650 beers I think I have a reasonably good palate for beers. This in mind, it is puzzling to me why this place has had any measure of success. In short, the beers were not good and several had evidence of bacterial infections... More

If you like beer this is the place for you. We did this as a shore excursion. It was about a 10 minute ride from the ship. The tour was very interesting and at the end you got samples and plenty of them. This shore excursion included 10 half pints of beer or 5 whole pints.

I went to Florida Beer Company on a Sunday afternoon to buy a couple 6 packs and a shirt, and have a draft beer. No one was working the checkout, so I took my 6 packs and shirt to the bar and waited, probably 20 minutes, to finally get waited on. Other than that, it was great. They may have... More

Thank you so much for stopping in to see us! You are correct, we had an overflow of cruise passengers that day that proved to be quite challenging. Due to the weather, most other on-shore excursions were cancelled. Rest assured we will be well prepared for that in the future and we hope you'll give us another try. We'd be... More

Awesome tour package for $10... a complete production brewery tour, souvenir glass, and 4 sample drafts of your choice. Delicious beer! Great tour! Free pretzels. Just wish you could buy some food to eat while you are there!

Not your typical bar. It's a working brewery and sometimes you can even see the beer being bottled. Most of the time there is not much action because it's all computerized and all the action takes place inside the "tanks". But is a unique place and a great place to sample (get a flight) several beers. They have live entertainment... More

We spent a few hours here during a Sunday NFL playoff game which we watched on the wide screen TV's. Nice crowd, competent bartenders, excellent flights of beer at very reasonable prices. This place does need bar food, though, really! Our group's favorite was the Key West Sunset Ale, while I particularly enjoyed the oatmeal stout.

Despite not having food, this place is a great bar scene if you're interested in just drinking variety of beers ... a must stop over.

We tried to go here on a thursday night, the week before Christmas and there was no parking in the lot, so came back the next day before the dinner hour.
