World series watch party bar is actually a brewery — West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault

Uncategorized

As this goes to press, the 2018 world series starts in just 3 days!  And the 2018 Boston Red Sox https://www.mlb.com/redsox  don’t even know who they are facing. Will it be the Los Angeles Dodgers  https://www.mlb.com/dodgers or the Milwaukee Brewers  https://www.mlb.com/brewers?  If you are looking for the absolute best bar to watch the world series in, consider the West Palm Beach Brewery at 332 Evernia Street, downtown West Palm Beach.  This brewery watch party is just north of City Place    http://www.CityPlace.comand the new Palm Beach Convention Center http://www.pbconventioncenter.com/  and Hilton Hotel.  Oh yea, this best world series bar is neither a bar, nor a sports bar.  Here’s what you need to know, MLB fans !  https://www.mlb.com/

  1. Best bar to watch world series.  OK, so the West Palm Beach Brewery is NOT a bar. Hell, they don’t serve spirits, only great tasting craft beer made right there in their production facility, behind their tap room. https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-beers/   Oh yes, you wine lovers.  This brewery has amazing wine at their wine bar, which they dub “The Vault.” Select from over 30 premium wines https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-wines/   which are made with passion and sincerity just for this Palm Beach Brewery at their wine bar.  
  2. Best bar to watch a world series is not a bar.  OK, so, the West Palm Beach Brewery is NOT a sports bar, either.  What??   But, you can watch a great game at this brewery !  Said another way, this brewery has lots of big screen TVs.   And, they do have a huge, 82″ High Def television and a state of the art sound system to hear all the play by play, over the 4 speaker zones.   Not enough? Not to worry!  This brewery has 10 other 65″ high def televisions, including at their Wine Bar, in their “living room”, at their restaurant, https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-food/  and throughout their 170 seat, indoor air conditioned tap room and micro-brewery.   “When I travel to wine country to visit vineyards or when I visit breweries, I look for a place to watch a game” says owner John Pankauski.  “There’s no secret to what I’m after: good food, nice atmosphere and a great craft beer or glass of wine to watch a game. When I began construction plans for the brewery in 2015 and 2016, I did not want to create a “bar” serving shots or vodka, or create a sports bar atmosphere. But I did want to show games, important breaking news stories and create an experience of fun and excitement.  It may be a delicate balance, but it’s also an expensive one” Pankauski jokes.  He spent thousands on the TVs, sound system, the stage, and even more for the NFL Sunday Ticket to show all the NFL games on Sundays, and to try to carry all the major College Football Games the rest of the week. 
  3. Plenty of Parking.  Watch the world series starting this Tuesday night, October 23rd, 2018!  There is a very reasonably priced parking garage literally across from the brewery on South Dixie Highway, and Evernia Street, one block east of the new Brightline Train Station.
  4. Never go hungry.  Read the  food reviews on this brewery restaurant, called The Intracoastal KitchenEat “easy” with charcuterie and cheese plates, and healthy salads and inspiring upscale taco’s (try their brisket tacos), or go for the “bar bite” or, best called, “brewery bites” pretzel with beer cheese, wings, and sliders.  For an upscale Florence-inspired experience, pair a glass of red wine with the Mama’s Meatballs, the wood fire Florence style gourmet pizza (definitely old world Italy, not Brooklyn), or Nico’s calzone.  (Four chefs at this brewery restaurant, three from Italy!  Now, that’s a place you gotta eat!!).
  5. MLB Connection.  Ok, so how did this brewery become so interested in baseball? And how did it become a watch party for the Boston Red Sox.  Just ask Peabody, Massachuetts native John Pankauski, the brewery owner. “I grew up following the Red Sox as a boy and played little league in Peabody.  My heroes were Yaz, Jim Rice, Freddy Lynn and Carlton Fisk.”  Good to know !  By the way, if the Brewers make it to the world series to play the owner’s Red Sox, expect a number of Miami Marlins fans to show up to cheer on Christian Yelich,  http://www.espn.com/mlb/player/_/id/31283/christian-yelich the MVP like Brewer who played for the Miami Marlins.
