Maine-based Sea Dog Brewing Co. will open its second brew pub in Florida on April 25. Its first Florida location opened in Clearwater earlier this year.
Sea Dog is the sister brewery to Shipyard Brewing Co., which opened the world’s first airport microbrewery in the Orlando International Airport in 1997 and is currently ranked No. 15 on the Brewers Association’s list of Top 50 Craft Brewers.
“We’re glad to be back in Orlando,” noted company owner Fred Forsley. “When we had to move the brewery out of the airport during renovations about a decade ago, we set a goal to return to Orlando and, today, that goal has been realized. We opened a Shipyard Brew Pub in Winter Park a couple of years ago, but we have really wanted to have a location again in the tourist area of Orlando where visitors from around the world as well as locals can enjoy the Sea Dog experience.”
The April 25 events at the Sea Dog in Orlando begin at 4 p.m. with a ribbon cutting by the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce. Beer and food specials will run throughout the evening.
This new restaurant is located in the Lake Buena Vista tourist area at 8496 Palm Parkway in the Vista Centre Shoppes. The menu features fresh seafood, New England-inspired pub fare and award-winning Sea Dog and Shipyard craft brews.
