Just toured @motorworksbrewing new spot in downtown Orlando and it looks pretty great! They should be opening in early September but stay tuned for more info on bungalower.com over the next week. They’ll have a healthy kitchen, an outdoor dog-friendly patio, and a full liquor license to compliment their brew menu. #orlandothings #thisisorlando #ireaditonbungalower
