We have good news and bad news for Cask & Larder fans: The good news is there is now a location at the Orlando International Airport. It’s open by gates 100-129, and offers the brand’s craft brews.

The bad news is the airport location will soon be the only Cask & Larder. As we mentioned previously, the Ravenous Pig will soon be moving to the space now housing C&L. The Brewery part will remain, but the restaurant area will be all Ravenous Pig.
