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!

Awesome little spot off the beaten path a stones throw from downtown back in the industrial area. Free tours at 6PM every night except Sunday. Live bands on Friday. Only all organic brew in all of Florida and like 1 of 11 in the U.S. A few table top games to play. They also have darts and giant jenga. No food yet but their looking at opening a second locale with more of that pub feel while the tap room remains as is, a tap room. Awesome spot and could have spent the entire day if I had the time.

Great beer with events happening outside. The organic beer is a new twist and it has a great taste to it

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. Otherwise, garbage beer for the whale chaser. ALL ORGANIC.

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.
