Tomoka Brewery, Ormond Beach’s first craft brewery, will soon be expanding their operation. Tomoka owners Peter Szunyogh and Jen Hawkins will are settling on a facility outside of Ormond Beach in Port Orange to house their fifteen-barrel brewing system and new restaurant. While the current facility makes one barrel of beer at a time for their eight-tap pizza restaurant, the new facility will have twelve taps and be able to brew fifteen barrels of beer at a time.
With two new partners, Tomoka Brewery’s Port Orange location is aiming for an opening date of late January 2015 for the new facility which will also house a brewery and restaurant. During the transition and beyond, the current Tomoka Brewery location will remain open for business. The new location will be housed at 4647 S. Clyde Morris Boulevard in Port Orange.
Tomoka Brewery is not sitting idle in the meantime. Currently Hawkins and Szunyogh are brewing a nut brown ale to benefit the Halifax Humane Society.
