(9-2-18) The American craft beer industry continued its impressive rise as our nation saw over 800 breweries open their doors in 2017 according to CraftBeer.com. The Pompano Beach community happily welcomed Odd Breed Wild Ales to the family last year, which quickly gained favor with locals, tourists, and beer critics. The industry brought in $26 billion last year alone as beer drinkers steadily understand that quality matters more than quantity. Beach Vacation Rentals has four charming properties within one mile of 26° Brewing Company, a top-tier craft brewery with a massive taproom. When you’re not sunbathing on Pompano Beach, scuba diving in Shipwreck Park, or soaking in one of our private pools, remember to grab a refreshingly hoppy pint of craft beer at one of our local breweries.
26° Brewing Company
The talented crew at 26° Brewing Company are a brisk six-minute stroll from our Yacht & Beach Club Condo. 26° is the ideal craft brewery for those searching for a venue that seats large groups of thirsty tourists. Their dimly-lit taproom features tall ceilings, repurposed wood tables, and the lengthiest bar in the county. Arrive thirsty because 26° remarkably has 30 taps in their brew hall, some of which are guest taps from local establishments such as Broski Ciderworks. Their most popular flagship ale is the hoppy IPA1A, a well-balanced citrus IPA with a dry, refreshing finish. The sour beer trend has found its way to Pompano Beach as 26° currently has a pucker and a gose available on tap. If you’re hungry, they have a rotating menu and select “delivery” choices from three local restaurants who will bring food right to your bar stool! The restaurants also rotate their items, building an always current neighborhood connection.
Odd Breed Wild Ales
1st Avenue’s Odd Breed Wild Ales is the fifth best new craft brewery in the United States, according to USA Today. Opening in 2017, Odd Breed swiftly asserted itself as a Pompano Beach brewing juggernaut. This small operation holds an overall 4.19 rating on Untappd, which firmly places Odd Breed inside the top 100 breweries in the country. Casual beer drinkers and lovers of traditional craft ales may initially struggle with their unique concoctions, but receptive beer connoisseurs will fall deeply in love with their flavorful oak barrel-aged brews. Odd Breed’s compact taproom is highlighted by a marble l-shaped bar, stacks of oak barrels, and a chalkboard-style, black brick backsplash. Odd Breed serves delectable tapas in their tasteful taproom, which rests in Pompano Beach’s newly-restored Old Town historic district. Join thousands of other beer lovers on the first Friday of each month to celebrate Old Town Pompano Untapped, a three-hour free sampling from six or seven local craft breweries. Enjoy live music, local art, food trucks, and much more in front of the Bailey Contemporary Arts building on 1st Street.
Bangin’ Banjo Brewing Company
Bangin’ Banjo Brewing began in 2009 as a homebrewing pipedream between two childhood friends and has blossomed into one of the premier craft breweries in southern Florida. The duo modestly operates inside a business park complex in northwest Pompano Beach. Their space is roomy and unpretentious with tall, green ceilings and exposed concrete. The “beertenders” serve diverse flights on tiny, wood-carved banjos, which is a splendidly creative touch. The Moodoo Voodoo is a velvety, roasty milk stout with subtle hints of coffee, perfect for a rainy day. Bangin’ Banjo often experiments with various IPA styles, including the newest craze: the New England-style IPA. The head brewer has expertly mimicked this juicy, hazy trend with the double-dry hopped Winning Lap and the milkshake IPA Bangin’ Strings.
