In the last year alone, an upswell of craft-beer establishments has emerged in Orlando, beginning with Oblivion Taproom, which opened on East Colonial Drive last fall. Downtown Orlando welcomed Tap and Grind, a small craft beer-and-coffee joint on West Central Avenue, in February, and Barley's Tap House followed shortly after on Fairbanks Avenue. Longwood has its own brewpub, the Hourglass Brewery, which opened this year on South Ronald Reagan Boulevard. Old stalwart Redlight Redlight Beer Parlour is getting ready to move into a new, more spacious abode on Corrine Drive, proving that Orlandoans have indeed acquired the taste for craft beer.

And Cask & Larder wants to help the region take the next big step, marrying the finest in local dining with locally brewed craft beer.

"There's so many other regions that have beer culture, and Florida has always been at the bottom of the list," Raike says. "But now we're on that cusp."
