Ever since they announced closing their taproom and investments in brewery equipment back in August of 2020, Orchid Island Brewery of Vero Beach has been somewhat silent, despite teasing new can design in December of 2020. Now Vero Beach’s first craft brewery has announced that they have found a new home for their “Grove to Glass Beer Project.”

Orchid Island Brewery has experienced growth and expansion in their first year, and tomorrow (September 5th) this will be cause for great celebration.
Orchid Island Brewery of Vero Beach is known for their citrus-forward beers. Ruby Red DIPA, Citron Farmhouse Ale, and Jungle Trail Black IPA all have elements of citrus as well as a relatively high alcohol content. These citrus beers are what has built the brewhouse at Orchid Island, but starting last week, Orchid Island has begun barrel aging their beers, beginning with an imperial stout.
Orchid Island Brewing of Vero Beach has been working to open their small craft brewery on the Space Coast of Florida for over a year. After issues and delays, the small brewery has posted pictures of brewing vessels and new and improved logos.
