ORLANDO, Fla. — Several Orlando breweries are celebrating National Beer Day on Wednesday by tapping new brews.
The holiday happens to fall on 407 Day, supporting Orlando area business impacted by the pandemic.
Here are a few ways you can celebrate:
Orange Blossom Brewing Co.
Orange Blossom Brewing Co. is releasing a new beer to honor its birth city, aptly named “City Beautiful IPA.”
The beer will be available on draft only at select bar taps and restaurants around Orlando starting Wednesday to show support to local on-premise businesses, many of which have suffered during the last year.
“City Beautiful IPA leads with a bright hoppy aroma and includes pine and floral notes. Pair that with its soft malty backbone, and the result is a beer that finishes with a refined bitterness that urges the drinker to take another sip,” OBBC founder Tom Moench said in a statement.
Ten10 Brewing Company
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer will join District 3 City Commissioner Robert Stuart, District 4 City Commissioner Patty Sheehan and Mills50 Board President Jeff Dry on National Beer Day for the unveiling of Ten10 Brewing Company’s new beer, named “Mills50.” A portion of the beer proceeds will go back to the Mills50 Main Street District toward beautification efforts in the area.
Ivanhoe Park Brewing
To celebrate 407 day, the brewery will be offering a new beer, “I-4 Eyesore Slow Pour.”
The German-style pilsner will be tapped on a side-pull tap and offered as a “slow-pour pils”.
The brew is named after the Majesty Building, one of Orlando’s iconic landmarks. The beer takes a while to pour, so you have to be patient when you order for it to be properly served.
“As with everything, perfection can’t be rushed. The slow-pour pils is worth the wait, as we hope the Majesty building will be some day,” the brewery wrote on social media.
