5 Craft Breweries to Visit on the Space Coast

For the love of beer

Craft breweries have been popping up in towns all across the country and the Space Coast is no stranger. Home to some of the best brewmasters, creating new and unique flavors that incorporate the laid-back Florida style with their one-of-a-kind brews, that first sip will let you know they take their craft seriously. And if you ask them or any of their staff, you can expect to hear why they are passionate about their creations. So whether you are a beer connoisseur or just enjoy a cold one every now and again, as you plan your visit, make sure you add a stop to one or all of them when you’re here.

Playalinda Brewery

Hardware Store

305 South Washington Avenue, Titusville | (321) 225-8978

Brix Project

5220 South Washington Avenue, Titusville | (321) 567-5974

Playalinda Brewery was the first established microbrewery in the northern part of the Space Coast. The Hardware Store location transformed one of the city’s oldest buildings in to a fully functional, modern taproom. Not only will you get to choose from several craft beers, you’ll also be able to enjoy wine and other pub fare, all while enjoying a piece of Space Coast’s history and small-town charm.

With a second location just a few miles south called the Brix Project, don’t expect the same look and feel. This location has a more hip vibe and offers you an expanded menu, not only with food, but also with your drink options. And unlike the hardware store, Brix Project is home to Playalinda’s distillery and they have some great concoctions you won’t want to miss.
