Friday, May 17th:

  • Hoppy Hour – $1 off all Orlando Brewing beers 1pm-6pm.

Saturday, May 18th:

  • BrewMaster Piece Release – Come out and try the BrewMaster’s latest creation, Diablo Rojo. It is a balanced, full bodied – yet hoppy – west coast style Red Ale. The bitterness is derived from a schedule that doubles the usual hopping rates. It is met with a nice malt backbone that is complimented with a citrusy aroma from OB’s aggressive dry-hopping. The first keg will be tapped at 1pm, and free original live music will begin at 9pm.

Sunday, May 19th:

  • Brewcrafter’s Meeting – Whether you’re a veteran homebrewer or have never brewed a batch (but always wanted to) you are invited to join OB’s favorite homebrewer’s club for their monthly meeting. Located on Orlando Brewing’s premise, this BrewCrafter’s meeting involves a community tasting, so please bring a tasting glass and some of your own homebrew, if you’ve got it. Meeting begins at 4pm; tasting glasses are available for purchase in the taproom.
  • Cause for Paws – Make a donation to Cause for Paws, an organization that provides animal care to those with terminal illnesses, and receive Hoppy Hour prices all day. Bring your pup by when you stop in for your brew — Orlando Brewing is a dog friendly brewery and Sunday is their Dog Day, with all day Yappy Hour.

Orlando Brewing is located at 1301 Atlanta Ave in Orlando.
