hey hey, what part of Orlando will you be in? If you're close to the East side, then I would recommend World of Beers, Fifty Brews, or Red Light Red Light. All of them have great beers with some being local as well (Cigar city, Effenheimer, OBP, SwampHead, etc.).

Also, if you're interested, they have the Shipyard Emporium in Winter Park. Ive been and its decent and if Ron is brewing hell chat it up with you. Let me know what you think

Staying on Disney property. We love Winter Park, went last year and enjoyed the Wine Cellar, which did have a few good brews on tap as well. We will definately check out Shipyard.

Anything you can find by Cigar City Brewing is awesome!

going to Orlando myself in two weeks. Due to the company I am going with, I will need to find a beer store soon after landing to pick up a case. Any good craft brew stores in the area? Sorry to hijack.

1+ for cigar city, search Rate beer.com for anywhere that carries it, they are making probably the best beer in Florida and much of the southeast

@TomRep Check out Total Wine, Big Cs Liqours, or any of the Knightly Spirit locations to scoop good brews. Also WoB will let you buy bottles to go.

I don't live that far away and still haven't made it to Shipyard. Maybe tonight I'll make it down there for their Maine lobster special.

Ron Raike is a freak when it comes to tasting beer. From just a few tastes (and about a bazillion sniffs) he'll tell me things about my beers that I didn't know or had forgotten...and I brewed them!

EDIT: those other beer bars are all good, Redlight looks kinda like a dive and parking can be sparse but the beers are worth it. WOB has plenty of good restaurants around (I love the Pei Wei next door). Fifty Brews is OK but when I'm there never has many people and the food isn't that good (the other two don't serve food but at WOB they allow/encourage you to order from the neighboring restaurants and eat it there, some deliver).

Redlight Redlight is supposed to be the best beer bar in the country. I will be in Orlando in May, and will most certainly be checking it out.
