Is Palm Beach’s warehouse district the perfect spot for a new craft brewery, tap room or beer garden?

Our Journey

1254-okeechobee-road-wpb-tap-room  Where is a cool, convenient place to place a craft brewery in Palm Beach County?

Is West Palm Beach’s Warehouse District the next craft brewery mecca? A funk zone for great beer and wine?

Well, what if there were a place, a location, a neighborhood, which had the following characteristics or traits:

  1. Really close to I-95.  I mean, easy access on and off; and quickly.
  2. Close to the airport, PBI.
  3. Plenty of parking.
  4. Busy corner with high visibility.
  5. Outdoor space for a beer garden, outdoor games, fire pits, bands, live music and most anything else.
  6. Proximity (walking distance) to two other breweries, and a brand new food market.
  7. Hip industrial area of town.
  8. Short Uber or walk to indoor/outdoor mall, Palm Beach County convention center, brand new Hilton Hotel, Marriott Hotel, Kravis Center, City Place, outstanding restaurants like Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Regional Kitchen and City Cellar.
  9. Short Uber to medium to large corporate park, office complexes and 5 story business travelers/suite hotels.
  10. Enough room for an indoor/outdoor bar with lots of seating outside at the “walk up” bar, shielded by water mists and a large awning providing shade in the summer.

Well, what I just described is West Palm Beach’s warehouse district.   That’s the area west of Parker Avenue, north of Belvedere, east of 95 and south of Okeechobee Boulevard.

Check out Mercer Avenue, which is a conduit and thoroughfare between the airport and 95, at Belvedere Road, and Australian Avenue and Okeechobee Blvd.

Check out Okeechobee Road, sometimes referred to as Old Okeechobee Road on google maps.  (Remember: the warehouse district is EAST of 95 and east of Australian Avenue).

Wouldn’t this make for a great beer lab, tap room or brewery annex?  Or simply, a brewery of its own?
