Cocoa Beach Brewing Company

Bryan and I enjoyed a day trip out to Cocoa Beach where we enjoyed a little sand and sun.  I love my craft beer, so I knew if we were going to Cocoa Beach we had to check out the Cocoa Beach Brewing Company.

Cocoa Beach Brewing Company is a microbrewery located in the heart of Cocoa Beach is just a short walk from the beach on Atlantic Avenue.  The brewery has a bit of a history as it resides in a former Navy house from the 1930's.  The historic charm of the bungalow adds to the uniqueness of the brewery.

Since it was a hot day out on the beach we were looking forward to relaxing with a fresh cold beer.  Nothing beats getting it straight from the source.

While the inside of the brewpub is small they have done a nice job with utilizing the space.  There are a number of tables to enjoy your beer, or you may find the couches a bit more relaxing.  When we arrived we had our choice of seating, so naturally we bellied up to the bar.

Dan was working the bar that afternoon and he gave us a little info on the brewery and the beers.  Bryan went with the Cocoa Beach Pale Ale, while I got a pint of Cocoa Beach Key Lime Cerveza.  I can see why the Pale Ale is an award wining beer; it's a sold pale ale that I was happy to learn I could purchase back in Orlando.  My Key Lime Cerveza was a nice refreshing beer perfect on a hot day.  Think of a Corona with a lime only fresher and much better.

We did try the third beer on tap; the Cocoa Beach Dirty Blonde.  It was alright, but hard to enjoy after the tasty Pale Ale.  As someone who enjoys her stouts I was disappointed that they didn't have their Not Just Some Oatmeal Stout on tap till after we left.  I'll just have to look for it here in Orlando or have another excuse to drive out to the Cocoa Beach for the day.

We were having a great time drinking our beers and chatting with Dan.  The Godfather playing on the TV in the background added to our entertainment for the afternoon.  Watching a classic and drinking some craft beer all while chatting with new friends; you just can't beat that.

One thing is for sure, there is nothing like enjoying a Florida beach with some Florida craft beer.  Cheers!
