In the last five years, the Daytona Beach area has exploded into a hot spot for craft beer breweries. And since it opened its doors in the summer of 2014, Daytona Beach Brewing Company has been a mainstay on the scene. This family-owned and operated business evolved from a home-brewing side project, and it now serves the Daytona Beach community from 4–9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and from 2–11 p.m. on Fridays an Saturdays each week.
The taproom features a wide array of delicious brews, ranging from the lightest of summer ales to pitch-dark stouts. Many are brewed right on-site, such as the Daytona Beachin’ Summer Ale, an American-style pale ale that tastes best after (or during) a long, hot day in the sunshine. Or, get a taste of the Trioval Tripel, a classic Belgian-style ale with a golden straw color and a crisp, fruity flavor. Another favorite for those seeking a more full-bodied brew is the Silver Beach Stout, which features a roasted flavor with hints of molasses, chocolate and caramel. Of course, for those who prefer more traditional American beer styles, the brewery has a variety of options like the Daytona Blonde and the Road Course Red Ale. Better yet, purchase a flight to sample multiple styles and stay awhile! The selection is constantly changing, so you’ll never get bored — no matter how many times you make the return trip!
Many visitors love that the owners and staff are well-versed in the brewing process and helpful in making selections. You’ll walk away from the brewery feeling like you learned something — then you can go back home and tell your friends you experienced educational beer drinking! And if your beer tasting works up an appetite, pay a visit to the food truck that’s usually on site — sometimes tacos, sometimes sandwiches, sometimes Southern BBQ, but always delicious. Occasionally, the brewery even partners with a local authentic pizza food truck and hosts a “pizza and pint” night.
If you’re in town often or lucky enough to live here, the brewery also offers membership packages with a range of perks. Plus, the company’s gift-card offering allows you to send featured brewery gifts to lucky recipients, while the e-gift card lets recipients come and choose gifts for themselves. The best part of that is that no money is wasted — if the recipient doesn’t redeem his or her e-gift, the money is returned to your account.
