The brewery is certified 100% USDA organic, which makes it one of only ten in the nation where all of their ingredients are organic, despite organic hops being twice as expensive as its non-organic counterpart. The brewery also has two non-organic beer offerings, in order to sell them through vendors like Publix, who are unable to cold-store their beers for a long time, which could lead to spoilage of products that are unpasteurized or lack preservatives.
Orlando Brewing (OB) distributes all over Florida, and is one of Disney World’s newest partners in the parks. The new Harambe Marketplace in Animal Kingdom only offers two beers at the food stalls, one of which is none other than OB.
This month they will be launching a their new 64 oz stainless steal growler. It is a new reusable container that local OB drinkers will be able to sanitize on site and refill with their favorite brew. Editor’s Note: we suggest the coconut stout, Papa Midnight.
The interior of the brewery is a traditional wooden, dimly-lit brew pub, with regular faces and friendly bartenders.
While taking advantage of the free brewery tour last week (anyone can sign up for a free tour, click HERE for more information), Bungalower learned that OB has a remarkably low employee turnover – the woman giving our tour was the most recently hired bartender, and had been there for five years.
