Ivanhoe Park Brewing Company is the newest addition to Central Florida's booming local craft beer scene. The independently owned company opened its doors to the public on Friday, June 29th. This microbrewery is located in the historic Ivanhoe Village District of Orlando, Florida and "celebrates the spirit and pioneering ways of early 20th century Lake Ivanhoe founder George Russell."
Ivanhoe Village Brewery In Orlando Crafts Beer And Grand Opening Plans
The Ivanhoe Park Brewing taproom is currently open Thursday to Sunday. The taproom is spacious with plenty of natural light and warm wood accents. The staff is accommodating and attentive and there is a large dog-friendly covered patio outside where you'll often find local food trucks.
The taproom sports 12 taps dedicated to craft beer. Currently, the house-made varieties are limited, but this will soon change. In the coming weeks, the brewery will fill up all 12 taps with their own handcrafted creations and then host a grand opening celebration.
Ivanhoe Park Brewing owner Glenn Closson is happy to have opened in Ivanhoe Village and to have become a part of the unofficial Barley Row. He's joined the ranks of GBs Bottle Shop, The Thirsty Topher, and Ten 10 Brewing Company. Closson hopes to partner with these awesome craft beer-centric establishments soon to "get some great collaborations going."
Keep your eyes peeled for those collab beers, and for the Ivanhoe Park Brewing cans that will soon hit the market. The production brewery intends to put a lot of focus on distribution in Central Florida and you're sure to see Toboggan Blonde Ale, Joyland IPA, and Bungalower Belgian Witbier cans in area pubs and package stores.
