east coast porch ale. An abundance of Belgian Pilsner malt and a delicate use of hops deliver an ale reminiscent of an old school lager. With unmistakable malt characteristic and a clean, crisp finish this is an easy drinking beer for anyone looking to test the craft beer waters.

way west coast style pale ale. The only way to say "pale ale," our west coast-style ale (pronounced PA-LAY AH-LAY) offers a smooth hint of citrus and pine. Brewed and dry-hopped with Columbus and Cascade hops this refreshing ale is exactly what you'd expect from a beer inspired by the Wild West. Giddy Up and Mahalo!.

florida wheat. Named after a once popular motel near the outskirts of Lakeland, our refreshing rendition of a Hefeweizen is brewed with orange blossom honey and tangerine then dry-hopped with Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans. It's mellow, sunny, and delightfully refreshing. Like an impromptu Florida vacation in a glass.

red rye. Not your ordinary rye. Cascade and German Magnum hops impart a delicate spice skillfully balanced by a dose of Centennial. Named after our rebel sister, Janet, with a nod towards Rocky Horror this rye leaves a lasting and satisfying impression that defies explanation and inspires exclamation. Just asking for it will bring a smile to your face!.

india pale ale. East meets west in this floral, fruity, citrusy bundle of drinkable joy. A muted bitterness to the finish is unmistakably IPA, but the delicate manner in which it is delivered makes this hoppy ale the farthest thing from a palate wrecker. Named after the founder of Lakeland this is for all the hop afficianados and visionaries frustrated by beers that lack respect for their taste buds.
One-Eyed Revenge, Abv 6.7% Ibu 34
macha stout. Marris Otter balanced with equal parts German Munich, British Carastan, and British Pale Chocolate malt with just a touch of roasted barley join forces with Black Onyx cocoa and Panamanian coffee to create a stout like no other. Satisfying the distinguished palates of local stout lovers (of which there are many in Lakeland) this is our nod to Blinky, the one-eyed alligator who made Lake Mirror his home until he met his mysterious, untimely demise disappearing in the dark of night without complaint or objection; the same way this delectable dark one is bound to disappear from your glass.

As owners we represent the gamut of beer.
One who has never liked it and doesn't drink it at all.
One that drinks beer but is still a relative newbie when it comes to hoppy versions.
And one that is a full- fledged craft beer nut.
Regardless of our differences we and our brewers all agree on one thing.
we aren't in business to produce mediocre beer. We use the finest ingredients possible adjusting and improving upon our recipes until we obtain results that satisfy each and every one of us. Then, once we reach a unanimous thumbs-up verdict; we strive to brew each beer consistently every time in as much as it is humanly possible. We think it's important when you find a beer of ours you like you can enjoy it again and again
We started with six beers we think are appealing to a wide range of craft beer drinkers.
Now, we look forward to exploring the potentially endless possibilities of flavors and styles and to grow our brands slowly over time to ensure quality over quantity. Our brewers are talented, knowledgeable, and most of all passionate about their craft. They take the often exhausting process of brewing beer and make it fun so you can enjoy their magic one pint at a time. That makes us lucky and blessed and worth a hearty toast. Cheers!
Every Friday night at dusk we invite you to grab a pint and join others on our front patio to watch the sunset over downtown Lakeland, stunning Lake Mirror, and the Frances Langford Promenade. Today's Sunset: 20:03 pm
We will kick off our 2015-2016 performance season by hosting the following awesome event in our Beer Garden: Sarah Mac Band and Grant Peeples, Thursday September 10, 2015 7:00pm This event is sponsored by Among Friends Music
