Sarasota Brewing Company will forever hold the distinction of Sarasota’s first micro pub. Before hipsters were lining out the door of many top breweries and people traveled from all over the state to hit the best craft beer spots in town, Sarasota Brewing Company was popping out top-notch seasonal brews. The company keeps it simple: 20 beers, any time, always different. These include Sarasota Gold, Midnight Pass Porter, Skyway Fog, and many many more.

The season demands new selections, and the team adopts new craft beers entirely from Europe and America as well as bringing back past highlights. You can get a taste of some crisp and flavorful local selections made from the finest ingredients.

Two Happy Hours make their selections even more accessible. The Monday through Friday Happy Hour from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. is a great time to stop on by, but the 10 p.m. to close weekday Happy Hour is where things get really interesting.
