Orlando Brewing is in a building resembling a warehouse in a - you guessed it - warehouse district located just outside of downtown Orlando. It is a far cry, and a welcome change, from the tourist traps abounding everywhere else. It's simple. A bar, several tables, a nice outdoor patio with a stage for live music, and probably the biggest cloth American flag I've ever seen indoors hanging on the wall. It's your local joint. It's awesome.

They don't have a kitchen, but they provide a long list of menus from local places that will deliver. The pizza I ordered turned out pretty good, though I won't attribute it's goodness to the brewpub.

They have an awesome selection of beers, I believe it was somewhere around 16 of their own plus a great selection of never-before-seen-on-tap big beers. Many of their brews are organic, but less than a quarter would I rate as very good to amazing.

Of those few that obtained the amazing status was a dark IPA (my favorite, too bad it's not a regular), their Red and Porter. The IPA was very well balanced both in the various depths of hoppy goodness and malty characteristics. The Red was similar to a Scottish Ale without being overly sweet, and the porter was a bit thin, but still had a depth of character many are lacking.

On the other hand, I did not really care for any of their beers of lighter color. The pale was unimpressive, the IPA was too bitter upfront without anything to balance afterwards, and the lighter lagers/wheat beers were pretty bland (one exception: a Blonde Cream Ale which was quite refreshing).

But, overall, this place is well worth the trip for the beers alone. I also enjoyed the "rating" chart they passed out with the sampler, asking for opinions on each of their brews. Feedback is always important!

Spacious, dog-friendly, beer-garden outside, large bar, clean bathrooms, super friendly staff, attractive bartenders, great beer if you aren't a snob or looking just for high ABV stuff, like myself, if you're like me, look out for any Senator releases, like RUM BARRELS. It's delicious, well-made and super limited, they don't bottle it either, you can just drink your fill there. One of the better lolly-gagging things to do in Orlando, when you're here.

Great beer! The Ron Burgundy is my favorite! And you have to take the brewery tour!

I've been a couple of times and have enjoyed each trip. They always have a wide array of beers on tap. Sometimes they have unfiltered brews and that's an added bonus.

The fact that it's an Organic brewery is great. They really put the time and effort in to make great beer.

The staff (volunteers I think) are great and the brewery tour is great.

You can bring in your own food.

Great taproom. This place brews very good beer and most of it organic. I haven't had a beer here that was bad or not up to par. Friendly atmosphere, pourers are friendly as is the brewer and others who work here. I visit every time I'm in the area.

When you walk in you're greeted with a very relaxed atmosphere. They have a pretty large bar and a few big tables to sit down at. As soon as we walked in the bartender (who is a volunteer) came up to our table and asked if we've ever visited and gave recommendations after talking with us and hearing what our tastes were. They offer A LOT more brews there than what they distribute and all of the ones I was able to try were fantastic. They sell growlers of anything except their two guest taps along with other merch and glassware. The only gripe I have is that the tour was incredibly boring and felt like more of a rant by the owner. Skip it!

Great fun place in an interesting but weird warehouse district. Still cool though. I recommend getting the variety flight. Good stuff all around.

Usually they have a food truck and live music on friday and saturday which is really fun. It's well worth it if you are planning to come to Orlando and want a fun night off to hit up a truly local spot.

Heck they are good enough to have a contract with Disney serving their beer in the American pavilion where people all over the world will associate it with American beer.

Great place! The beer was from good to great, and John (owner) makes a huge difference. Prompt service and good prices.

We couldn't try all the beers in one visit, but this brewery is in our list for a visit next year. Reviews reflect our personal taste and not a scientific method, that's why the Pale Ale and the IPAs score lower. I'm sure that those who like pales and IPAs would rank them better as quality seems to be good all around.

Made a quick visit to Orlando Brewing last night. The place is out of the way in a sense, tucked amongst warehouses, etc. the tasting room was cool with neat decor....pics on the wall were taken by a local photographer (I think). Big american flag on one wall was neat. The quality of the beers was good. The service was outstanding....Kat the bartender was really friendly (not to mention good-looking) and very knowledgable about the beer. They had at least 10 or so of there own beers on tap and several guest beers. Overall I am glad I took the chance to visit.
