When we opened about 10 months ago we never anticipated the overwhelming excitement from our local craft beer drinkers. We always thought “make good beer and people will come”. Not only did over 1,500 people show up to our grand opening but we have met so many new friends and fellow beer lovers. The demand for locally made artisan beer was in such high demand we cannot keep up. Lot’s of you are wondering why we have not distributed any beer or bottled anything yet. The answer is quite simple really. We can’t make it fast enough. It is definitely a good problem but we are in need of an expansion very soon.
The Hourglass Brewery appreciates every single patron that walks through the taproom door. You are part of the family and deserve only the best. Because of your dedication to local business and passion about spreading the word we have been mentioned in The Orlando Sentinel numerous times, featured in many online blogs and voted the second best place to have a beer in the Orlando Weekly for every single category. We feel honored that the people voted for the new guys on the block. To be mentioned just below one of the best beer bars in America is even more flattering!
It has been a fun year! We have made over 60+ different recipes and listened to all your recommendations for future beer ideas. We have some really exciting beers coming soon. A lot of the will be featured at our 1 year anniversary party. We will have another epic shindig which is currently scheduled for August 17th but stay tuned for details as they unravel. Bottles will soon be available as well as new apparel. We still have our logo t-shirts, branded pint glasses, Belgian tulip glasses, growlers, stickers and more.
If you haven’t visited in a while you should definitely stop by for a night of new experiences. This Friday (6/28) we will be interviewed by Jeanna from americancraftbeer.com about craft beer & food truck pairings. Louie’s Bistro will be here with his amazing gourmet dishes. This is one food truck you do NOT want to miss! Check him out on Facebook
