Sip locally

If you’re new to east central Florida, it’s helpful to know Ormond Beach is the northernmost municipality in the greater Daytona Beach area — a thriving region bordered by the Atlantic and convenient Interstates 95 and 4.

Brew pubs and tap rooms abound, and Ormond Beach boasts its share. We’ll get you started with three easy destinations for Plantation Bay residents — Beachside Brew Pub, Ormond Brewing Company and Ormond Garage Brewing.

Beachside Brew Pub is located in Ormond by the Sea, just north of Ormond Beach. As you might guess, this means sampling homemade flights and food-truck creations just steps from sand and salt water. Sign up for Beachside Brew Pub’s newsletter or a tour of their brewing facilities.

Ormond Brewing Company is one of the early stalwarts of Daytona Beach’s craft brewery scene. It’s tucked on Division Street, off U.S. Highway 1 in Ormond Beach’s commercial and retail corridor. You’ll find nearly 20 brews on tap, a beer garden, live entertainment on many nights and munchies from top area food trucks.

Ormond Garage Brewing is one of the newer craft breweries, and it takes full advantage of Ormond Beach’s heritage as the “Birthplace of Speed.” Housed in a historic garage on West Granada Boulevard in downtown Ormond Beach, Ormond Garage Brewing celebrates the late 19th- and early 20th-century land speed records that were set on nearby beaches.
