Why a Palm Beach Brewery is a Great Tourist Destination


Should a Palm Beach Brewery be a tourist destination?  I mean, do visitors to Palm Beach County want to include a brewery in their time here ?  Here’s 5 reasons a Palm Beach County brewery is a good tourist destination.

  1. Artisan Craft Beer is Here in Palm Beach County.  People respect the hard work of artisans.  People love anything craft, made with passion, focus and sincerity.  That’s one reason, only one reason (I know) that wine regions like Walla Walla, Washington, Napa Valley and the Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara are so popular among, not only wine lovers, but also people who love to travel.   Same thing goes for craft beer. Let’s face it, America loves beer.  And, now, we are experiencing (not a trend, but) a great “draft shift”: a change in options for beer consumers + a change in how Americans select, purchase and enjoy their beer.  So, in short, folks in Americans are alreadyembracing what is craft, artisan, home made, whatever you want to call it. And a Palm Beach County brewery is all of that and more, and worthy of your time when you are visiting Palm Beach County. https://www.thepalmbeaches.com/
  2. Wine Tours + Craft Beer Tours.  Americans already incorporate wine tours into their travel plans.  I used to describe trips to wine countries like Sonoma, Napa and Santa Barbara as “Disneyland for Adults.”  You get it all: great wine, beautiful scenery, a great “escape” and good food.  Well, I can tell you that I was in a Palm Beach County brewery one day, on my way to a University of Miami football game, having a cold one, experiencing this Palm Beach brewery, when I met this couple.  They were from the west coast, think Oregon or Washington, not Naples or Ft. Myers.  They wanted to get away to a warm place and so they chose Palm Beach County. But the story does not end there.  They also LOVE craft beer and enjoy visiting craft breweries.  So, they wondered, when they were planning their trip, where could they go to get great weather &  also a number of breweries to visit?  Palm Beach County ! My point is that adults who love artisan & craft food and beverage products are already “vacationing” to and in wine regions, and now, they are also incorporating craft beer regions into their vacation plans. And Palm Beach County is becoming a must see, craft brewery region !!! 
  3. Quality + Variety.       At a Palm Beach County brewery, artisan brewers make great tasting craft beer right on the premises!  You don’t have to go to Asheville or Denver to get great craft beer. And a Palm Beach County brewery throws in the sunshine  at their micro-brewery and great beaches for free.  You bring the suntan lotion and SPF 30. And now, many breweries have amped up production to give you an even greater variety of craft beer than ever before, with some breweries having as many as 20 craft beers on tap in their tap room.  https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-beers/
  4. Here Comes the Sun !!  Hey, let’s face it: a lot of Floridians are not from Florida.  They moved here for the sun, warm weather, and great nights.  Yes, even in the summer, they evenings are gorgeous and you should enjoy them sitting out side under the stars sipping a cold craft beer from Palm Beach County.  Or, at least consider that.  The breweries here throw in the sun for free and most have easy access to the beautiful waters of the Florida tropics, just east. My point is that Palm Beach County is a great place to experience craft beer ! 
  5. Its Not Just About The Craft Beer.   That’s right.  Breweries in Palm Beach County are doing amazing things like creating outdoor table service, and pet friendly areas to bring your dog where they get free treats, and doggy bowls of water. https://www.westpalmbeer.com/pet-friendly-restaurant/  One brewery creates an amazing craft beer experience with a great vibe.    One actually has its own restaurant right in the brewery  https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-food/   and a chef whose team prepares your food right in front of you, rather than using food trucks.  One has a 5 Star Napa Valley-like wine bar with vineyard direct, limited production premium wine.   https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-wines/     (Yes, this brewery has great wine, too !!) So, you can get GREAT STUFF and a wonderful experience, in addition to craft beer made right here !!!   Some breweries are family friendly   and one in West Palm Beach is not only dog friendly but also family friendly  https://www.westpalmbeer.com/family-friendly/   with Sundays creating a great vibe that sees families and their newly born infants arrive so mom or dad can have a cold craft beer on draft, hanging out with craft beer lovers.  https://www.westpalmbeer.com/best-restaurant-sunday/   A draft of inclusion you might say.  That’s why so many visitors are making a brewery in Palm Beach County part of their vacation plans when they are visiting relatives in the area, or sneaking away for a weekend at the Breakers Hotel  https://www.thebreakers.com/  to play golf or just to get away.  In town for a convention at the new Palm Beach County Convention Center?   http://www.pbconventioncenter.com/ Consider supporting local craft beer producers by visiting a brewery !
