The Public House Orlando

When I first started getting into craft beer a couple of years ago I was surprised to find out how Orlando was lacking in options. I was use to having a variety breweries and brewpubs to choose from. Then I soon realized that while more would be nice we had some really good options here in Central Florida.
One local bar that I discovered last fall was the Public House off of University out by UCF. This local bar just opened in 2013. While it’s out by the University it’s not your usual “college” bar. This space has a nice relaxing feel where those over 21 range in age from college kids to professors.

The Public House has a nice bar with a couple of tv’s above it showing the games of the day. You will find a nice display of bottled beers along with about 25 draft beers to choose from. Along with a great selection of craft beers you will find wines and a full bar as well.

The Public House is looking to expand into the empty lawn space next door. While it is currently being used as a smoking patio and a place to enjoy corn hole, they’d like to build a beer garden in its place. There’s even talk of putting up a screen to host movie nights.
While they don’t serve food in the bar you are welcome to bring in food from area restaurants. They have a binder with some menus. A nice bonus is the new 4 Rivers Smokehouse opened up across the way.

My first visit to the Public House was when they were hosting a 
Terrapin Tap Take Over. Hubs and I met up with a few Lady Crafters and their spouses for a night of fun tasting specialty beers. I’ll never forget how amazing the Cinnamon Roll’d Wake-n-Bake tasted. It tasted like a cinnamon roll and coffee combined with the most wonderful aroma.


My next visit to the Public House was during their 420 event. Hubs and I met up with The Hoppy Couple. This was an afternoon of fun. Brian the 
Lagunitas beer rep was in for the event, handing out Lagunitas swag and serving up some local pizza from Lazy Moon. Brian even brought in cupcakes from Bees Knees made with Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout. The beer highlight for the evening was Waldo’s Special. This limited addition double IPA was filled with hoppy goodness.
