MEET THE TEAM
Say Hello to
Mr. Patrick Barnes
Patrick Barnes came to us after what amounts to nearly a lifetime of brewing experience. Raised in D.C., he began his Brewer’s journey while still in high school with his friend (don’t worry, his dad helped and supervised as an of-age adult). He and his friend continued brewing throughout college at the University of Mary Washington where Patrick double majored in Economics and Business. After graduating, he continued his passion for brewing at two northern breweries before being recruited by the president and co-founder of Islamorada Beverages back in 2016. Patrick helped spearhead the build out of the Fort Pierce production facility and, to this day, never ceases to amaze with his knowledge and ingenuity. As for his future at Islamorada Beverages he states, “I look forward to the day I see our beer on shelves up north when I visit home to see my parents”. Nicely said, Patrick….us too!

Garbage bags – Cleaning supplies such as brushes and sponges – Peroxide or anti-mold products – Bleach – Gloves (both surgical and yard/utility) – Plastic tubs – Gas cans – Bungee cords – Rakes – Yard tools – Tarps – Button cap roof nails – Chain saws – Blowers – Generators – Damp rid – Socks – Nonperishable foods such as canned tuna, peanut butter, and jellies (to help feed volunteers and recovery personnel) – Bottled water

Hibiscus Gin, Dark Rum, & Crooked Palm® Win BIG At The USA Spirit Rating Competition
Crooked Palm (all flavors), Hibiscus Gin, and Dark Rum ALL received accolades from a panel of high-profile spirits industry judges at this year’s USA Spirit Rating Competition. Each entry scored highly in three different categories – Quality, Value, and Packaging – in order to take home a medal in the competition. Winning Gold, four Silvers, AND Bronze medals at theUSA Spirits Ratings Competition is not only an ultimate seal of approval but also shows that Islamorada Brewery & Distillery™ makes high-quality spirits with broad consumer appeal. One of the guiding principles of the USA Spirits Ratings competition is that all spirits that receive medals in the competition should be those that consumers actually want to buy, whether it is shopping for a spirit at a retail liquor store, or ordering a spirit off a bar menu. The judging panel included spirits industry professionals with commercial buying expertise. It also included professionals from leading retail chains, wholesalers, distributors, specialty retailers, and casual and fine dining establishments. The inclusion of many high-profile judges ensured that spirits that were awarded medals in competition were those with a high degree of commercial appeal.
Key Lime Hibiscus Ale Takes Home Bronze
at the USA Beer Rating Competition
In an incredibly competitive field at the 5th annual USA Beer Ratings competition in San Francisco, California, Key Lime Hibiscus Ale won a Bronze medal. All beers were judged on a 100-point scale by a panel of high-profile judges with the extensive commercial buying experience. In an innovative twist on traditional scoring at international beer competitions, the USA Beer Ratings used a three-factor scoring system that took into account factors beyond just brewing technique or overall taste. The total score was calculated based on three different scoring factors – Quality, Value, and Packaging. To win a USA Beer Ratings award you will need to score highly in all three areas of the judging criteria. Islamorada Brewery & Distillery’s Key Lime Hibiscus Ale is available at your local Winn Dixie Store.
MEET THE TEAM
Meet our Princeton-Educated, not-afraid-to-get-her-hands-dirty, do-what-it-takes to keep customers happy, Jill-of-many-trades, Miss. Larisa Baste. Since coming on board in the summer of 2016 to pour pints for guests, there’s truly nothing this girl hasn’t done at the company. She started working full-time at the Islamorada Taproom way back in 2018 where she helped with the distillery as well as behind the bar and was quickly given the spot as Islamorada Taproom Manager. She even took a turn promoting our spirits which is how she began experimenting with mixology…so make sure to thank her when enjoying one of our amazing hand-crafted cocktails! By 2021, she filled her days doing a little of everything as general manager of the Islamorada location; helping to organize, plan, strategize, and, yes, making her amazing cocktails when there’s a moment to spare. In her own words, “one of my proudest achievements is navigating the process of getting our top cocktails in kegs and on taps. It makes me so happy to see people enjoying our spirits and having a great time.” These days Larisa spends a great deal of time at the computer crunching numbers and projecting forecasts but her heart is always sitting in the beer garden, enjoying a nice cold Islamorada Beer.

When Islamorada Brewery & Distillery opened its second location in Fort Pierce back in 2016, we laser-focused our efforts towards building for the future of the brand, not just for our immediate production requirements. Having launched our first Spirit in 2017 and enjoying instant support from the community, we knew we’d have to expand, and expand fast. By 2019, we had earned national recognition and accolades for nearly all of our Spirit offerings. Our north location assists in the distillation process giving us the ability to keep up with the increasingly high demand. Since then, we have expertly distilled some of Florida’s best Spirits (if we do say so ourselves) including our award-winning Gin, Hibiscus Gin, Vodka, Reserve Rum, Select Rum, and Dark Rum, along with our Silver and Spiced Rums. We are very excited for the future ahead and can’t wait to bring more of our spirit projects to market for our customers and fans to enjoy.

The Newest Batch Of
Our Reserve Rum
Aged for over a year and a half in Rye Whiskey Char 3 Barrels, Islamorada Reserve Rum’s unique flavor derives from the use of premium, GMO-free Select Molasses and our unique combination distillation process. Driving all the alcohol from the mixture through a pot distillation and using our copper column for a 5x distillation of the second run produces an incredibly smooth, light canvas for the barrel flavor to take hold. Our Reserve Rum is the smoothest in our premium category lineup. The use of small aging barrels intensifies the contact between the Rum’s vanilla-spiced body and the smoky whiskey flavor of the solid oak inner boards. Allowing time to play its part brings to life an unexpected and richly layered flavor that proves that age is much more than just a number. Available only in our taprooms, stop by to pick up this exquisite rum while supplies last.
It’s that time of year again when the flavors are just right and the rum barrels are ripe for the plucking. Aged for 3.5 years in rye whiskey barrels, this premium rum shows off the delicate characteristics of its blackstrap base while exhibiting the smooth flavors that are summoned during our extensive aging process. Each batch of our delicious Reserve Rum is unique in its own way so don’t miss out on 2022’s finest. Bottles are sold exclusively at our taprooms.

Mrs. Bradley not only handles our employee programs and accounting, she’s also our President’s actual mom! Thank you for always being there to help out our staff when they need a hand. Please help us wish Giselle a very Happy Mother’s Day!

KICK OFF YOUR SHOES WITH AN ISLAND STATE OF MIND, SUMMER IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER
Spring has sprung here in Florida and the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival hosted by Walt Disney World has Islamorada Beverages back on the menu for the 4th year in a row!! We absolutely love being a part of this prestigious festival and it gives us a great excuse to go back and visit each year. If you are planning a trip to EPCOT this year, make sure to stop by Farmers Feast (Near Test Track) to try the Hibiscus Lemonade featuring our Islamorada Hibiscus Gin. The Hibiscus Lemonade was a fan favorite last year for its exceptional flavor profile, eye-catching look, and the fact it was the perfect cocktail to enjoy under the warm Florida sun. Give it a try this year at the new Farmers Feast Outdoor Kitchen Booth and let us know what you think.
You can also find No Wake Zone (Coconut Key Lime Ale) at La Isla Fresca (Between Morocco and France) and our Key Lime Hibiscus Ale can be found at The Citrus Blossom (Near Port of Entry). The International Flower & Garden Festival is always a great way to spend a day and the fact you can enjoy a slice of our Island State of Mind at the Happiest Place On Earth makes us here at Islamorada Beverages just a little bit happier.
