The smell of fall is in the air once again and your seasonal fall favorite, Oktoberfest, is coming back on tap exclusively to Islamorada Brewery & Distillery taprooms. After taking home gold at the 2021 Best Florida Beer Oktoberfest Awards, we couldn’t wait to brew this one again. Oktoberfest will be making its 2022 debut early in the month so make sure to plan a visit to Islamorada or Fort Pierce this September to have a pint or stop by for half-off growler fills every Tuesday. You can also join us in Islamorada on October 1st for ourDogtoberfestcelebration in the Florida Keys. Bring your pup and your peeps to chill at Islamorada Brewery & Distillery for this year’s celebration of Oktoberfest! Come ready to win our silly “Top Dog” Olympics, then stick around for live music by the Lower Mat Cats and our Oktoberfest costume contest.
Labor Day marks the official end of summer (even though summer still has 21 calendar days left) and signals that it’s time to get serious. School’s starting and there’s a sense that summer vacation is over. But that’s not what it’s really about and here at Islamorada Beverages, we don’t believe that there IS an end to summer. What we do believe in, though, is celebrating our amazing staff and their efforts to make our beers tasty, our spirits smooth, our reach far, and our image engaging. Since our very first brew, our dedicated and hard-working staff have endeavored tirelessly to elevate Islamorada Beverages and they continue to astound us with their dedication everyday. Thank you, sincerely, to each and every one of you….now get out there and celebrate An Island State of Mind® the best way you can!

Meet treasure coast native Paul Whitney. Paul joined our team back in December 2019 as a packaging hand having no prior experience in the brewery production industry. Due to his inherent interest in mechanics and overall brewery operations, Paul quickly moves up the ranks as a filler operator and now works as the packing manager at our Fort Pierce production facility. Paul’s favorite part of the day is the end of the day when he can relax and enjoy his well-earned shift beers and reminisce on the hand he plays in making a quality product he’s truly proud of. His favorite beer is our Nested Reel (Kettle Hopped Sour Ale). Cheers to you Paul and all the hard work you put in for Islamorada Beverages!
