Best Brewery in Palm Beach Does Not Distribute


Looking for the best brewery in Palm Beach, Florida?  Well, don’t look in the local beer section of Total Wine http://www.TotalWine.com or the local craft beer refer of Whole Foods, http://www.Wholefoods.com’cause you won’t find craft beer from the West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault. This little brewery at 332 Evernia Street, the very first downtown craft brewery &  tap room, does not distribute. Or, as the owner says, they “keep it small and let the patrons have it all.”  Here’s what you need to know about what makes the West Palm Beach Brewery the best brewery in Palm Beach.

  1. Great taste, incredible variety.  Fans agree that the beer at the West Palm Beach Brewery does taste great.  But taste alone does not make it the best brewery in Palm Beach.   Check out the variety of craft beers made on the premises, inside their 10 barrel production facility.  You can actually view their production facility +  fermentation room from behind the glass in their tap room, with seating for 170 in an air conditioned, custom built tap room.  They have a 20 tap system, all delivered to your glass at 37 degrees.  Check out their chalkboard for limited release, and reserve craft beers. https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-beers/
  2. Great food!  Yes, can you imagine that this brewery has amazing food to pair with their great craft beer?   Food, according to the owner is the “X” factor in creating a great craft brewery experience.  “You need a plan for food at your brewery and also a wine program” says the owner, John Pankauski. https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-food/   He attributes good food, even with a limited menu, and solid wine, as key components to creating an experience, attracting new and more loyal customers.   https://www.browardpalmbeach.com/restaurants/south-florida-breweries-embrace-growing-brewpub-trend-with-unique-food-options-9720342
  3. Premium Wine. Belly up to the wine bar, called The Vault, and enjoy premium, limited production wines from such places as Napa, Sonoma and the Sta Rita Hills.  “We know that many folks want to come out, have dinner or bar bites, but don’t drink beer.  So, I created the top wine bar in the area with sincerely premium and ultra-premium wine that you simply won’t find anywhere else” says Pankauski.  Try his 2016 Palm Beach Pinot, a 150 case offering of Pinot Noir from the Sta Rita Hills in Santa Barbara, or his teeth-staining Inky Black red wine (not released until Black Friday, 2018) or his amazing Napa Valley selections of big reds and Cabernet Sauvignon.
  4. Where How?  To get there, find your way to the downtown of West Palm Beach, just two blocks west of the Intracoastal Waterway, also known as Flagler Drive at 332 Evernia Street.  Go north of CityPlace  http://www.CityPlace.comand the Convention Center.  http://www.pbconventioncenter.com/  The brewery is on the south side of the road, across the street from the  7 story city owned reasonably priced parking garage on the corner of Evernia and South Dixie. The brewery is literally a block east of the new Brightline Train Station.  http://www.GoBrightline.comThe brewery opens at 4:00 pm Monday-Friday, and opens at 11:00 a.m. on Saturdays, for the downtown West Palm Beach Green Market.  They open at 12:00 noon on Sundays for the NFL DirecTV Sunday Ticket.  That’s right, this is NOT a sports bar, but all the college games are on Saturdays, and the NFL package is shown on Sundays.  Seating and table service is available outside.  The brewery is family friendly and pet friendly.
