The breweries of our beaches

Handcrafted libations bring more than people together in Fort Myers. Our breweries and distilleries take the freshest local ingredients and brew them with a taste for our fun-loving islands.

Hops, barley, malt and sugarcane (when it comes to rum) are the only similarities you’ll find between our growing craft beverage scene and what other destinations offer. From Fort Myers to Cape Coral to Bonita Springs, our award-winning brewers and distillers blend local oranges, berries, honey and even chocolate with traditional ingredients into smooth tasting original creations. Tour these family friendly venues one at a time, or on a chauffeured tour, and enjoy the happy fruits of their passion. To view a printable map of breweries and distilleries throughout Southwest Florida, click here.
