If you’re in the mood for an artistic environment, a tasty brew and good conversation, head to the heart of historic downtown DeLand to see the real life dream of two home brewers and best friends. At Persimmon Hollow Brewing Company, the back door opens onto Artisan Alley, home of several great boutiques, restaurants and a Friday night farmers market. Here, you can choose from a wide variety of craft beer that ranges from stouts to coffee porters to good ol’ American wheat ales. Plus, there’s always something fun going on in the tap room, from yoga to trivia.
What to Try: Gypsy Hiker, a New England-style IPA, Vacation Wheat, a crisp and sweet Hefenweizen, or a variation of it brewed with Blood Oranges.
