As a beer lover myself, one of the activities I always recommend is to check out local craft breweries – so to help you do the same, I’ve put together this list of the awesome breweries in Palm Beach County, Florida.
Florida is one of my favorite beer destinations. Not only are the beers great, but the breweries themselves make such cool places to while away your days in the sun.
Palm Beach County is loaded with craft breweries from top to bottom, Jupiter to Boca Raton. You probably won’t have time to visit them all (unless you live there, lucky!) so I’ve partnered with Hotels.com to bring you this guide to the breweries in Palm Beach County to help you pick and choose.
Where to stay in Palm Beach
Palm Beach County, Florida is more than just Palm Beach. It also includes the cities of Jupiter, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and a handful of others in between.
However, the best and easiest way to see all this area has to offer and, ahem, drink all the beers at all the breweries in Palm Beach County, you’ll want to stay in the actual town of Palm Beach.
Palm Beach is actually smack in the middle of Palm Beach County, halfway down between Jupiter and Boca Raton. It’s also the most visitor-friendly spot in the area. So when you’re ready to check out the breweries in Palm Beach County, start your planning with these awesome Palm Beach hotels.
Now let’s get to the good stuff! Stop by these breweries in Palm Beach County on your next visit and enjoy sipping in the sunshine at its best.
Breweries in Palm Beach County: the Palm Beaches
Since you’ll most likely be staying in Palm Beach while you’re here, let’s start with the breweries here on the Palm Beaches. I’m nothing if not efficient when it comes to beer drinking.
1. Accomplice Brewery and Ciderworks – West Palm Beach
I’m going to start off this list with a little bit of a diversion. Accomplice Ciderworks does sell local craft beer, but their real claim to fame is their collection of unique ciders.
Open since 2015, Accomplice brews a full range of ciders that focus on European cider and mead styles. Of their 21 ciders on tap, the ones that most speak to me are:
- Winter in South Florida – a cinnamon and coconut semi-dry cider
- Blackberry Rooibos Perry – a semi-dry pear cider made with blackberry and Rooibos tea
- Limone di Genoa – an easy-drinking cider with hints of lemon and basil herb
…but I like my ciders quite a bit off the beaten path. They do offer more typical cider options as well. They’re open seven days a week so come check them out at their West Palm Beach taproom.
2. American craft Aleworks – West Palm Beach
American Craft Aleworks is a super fun spot for beer-drinking in West Palm Beach. They offer pop-up food trucks, live music and events, and even french toast lollipops for brunch. Oh, and plenty of beer.
While you’re there, try some:
- Optical Illusion – Nitro imperial stout with lactose, coffee, cacao, and vanilla beans (OK that sounds decadent)
- Notoriously Hazy – New England IPA
- 3Gs – Gose fruited with guava and grapefruit
- Passion Fruit Deco – Berliner weisse
- 1925 Lager
- And so many more interesting flavor styles
3. Coastal Karma Brewing – Lake Park
Between North and West Palm Beach you’ll find Coastal Karma Brewing whose slogan is “Good beers, good times, good karma.” And that sounds about as chilled-out-Florida as you can get.
Come check out their spacious and comfortable (honestly, why can’t all bars have seats like this?) taproom and try beers like:
- Dark Waters Sour – kettled with dark cherries and vanilla
- Karma Hoptra IPA
- Oogie Boogie Wheat Ale
- Professor Pickles Tart Ale (I am 100% behind pickle beers—don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it!)
- And more!
Another of Florida’s great dog-friendly taprooms, Coastal Karma offers on-site yoga classes, bingo, snacks, happy hour, and even “Pups n Pints” nights.
4. Ookapow Brewing Company – West Palm Beach
As West Palm Beach’s first microbrewery, Ookapow Brewing Company specializes in small batch craft and artisanal ales. If you’re up for trying something a little different, stop by Ookapow.
At Ookapow you can try such beers as Butterscotch Cream Ale, Peanut Butter Porter, and Franken Sour. You can even have yourself a Beermosa for brunch.
5. Royal Palm Brewing Company – Royal Palm Beach
For something a little more “traditional,” head to Royal Palm Brewing Company, the first microbrewery to set up shop in Royal Palm Beach.
Here you’ll find beers that totally run the gamut—everything from simple IPAs, lagers, wheat beers, sours, ambers, and more. If you’ve got a hankering for it, chances are you’ll find something here you’ll like. I’ve personally got my eye on the Guava Mango Half Moon Island wheat beer.
Unlike most taprooms, Royal Palm Brewing Company also has a full kitchen serving appetizers (including, yes, jumbo pretzels!), wraps, Cuban sandwiches, and much more.
6. Skunkworts Brewing Concern – West Palm Beach
I gotta admit, nothing about the name of this place really lures me in. Like, should I? Should I be concerned?
However, this place is fantastic. According to their website, the name is actually a reference to Skunk Works, the legendary developers of Lockheed Martin’s most cutting-edge aircraft. And being a huge av-geek myself, I am totally on board.
Better yet, they have just the beers I’m looking for. Stop into Skunkworts Brewing Concern for a German pilsner, a Munich helles, a hefeweizen, or if you’re more into hops than I am, you can also try their selection of IPAs.
Come check them out at their awesome aviation-themed taproom, kick back with a few on their patio, then fill a growler and take some to-go.
7. Steam Horse Brewing – West Palm Beach
Steam Horse Brewing is actually the brainchild of the brew masters of two other popular breweries in Palm Beach County—Tequesta and Twisted Trunk.
Thanks to its location in West Palm Beach’s Warehouse District, they have a huge taproom serving up a wide range of beer styles in a setting dedicated to vintage steam trains. (Ok, I love how into vintage transportation these breweries are!)
At Steam Horse you can enjoy beers like:
- Barnum n Barley Circus – Belgian ale (but if you are into circus culture you should definitely make a trip over to Sarasota on the Gulf coast)
- Norwegian Sky – Saison
- Tripel Dare – Belgian Tripel (I’m a huge fan of Belgian beer styles myself)
- West Palm Lager – European Style Lager
- And even some IPAs and such as well
If you’re hungry, you can grab some grub from the nearby Grandview Public Market and bring it with you.
8. The Kelsey City Brewing Co – Lake Park
Also in Palm Beach County’s Lake Park Arts District is The Kelsey City Brewing Co. located at the Brewhouse Gallery, a single space containing an art gallery, a music venue, and this craft beer taproom.
They have 30 beers on tap and highlight local artists at once. Here, you can also experience live music, trivia nights, painting classes, and a rotating selection of food providers as well. Stop into the spacious Brewhouse Gallery to check out some of The Kelsey City Brewing Co.’s great beers like:
- Prosperity Farms Belgian Wit
- Sawmill Red IPA
- JJ’s Pineapple Wit
- Model Dairy Milk Stout
- Kettler’s Kolsch
- And so many more great options.
9. Twisted Trunk Brewing – Palm Beach Gardens
Serving up a mixed selection of beers in a super cozy but spacious taproom (couches in bars are my favorite thing) is Twisted Trunk Brewing in chill Palm Beach Gardens–home and headquarters of the PGA in case you were looking for a little factoid.
Twisted Trunk is part of the Steam Horse-Tequesta brewery trifecta and they’re a true favorite ‘round these parts. The name Twisted Trunk was inspired by the awesome Banyan trees found throughout the area (and much of southern Florida).
Here, you can sample beers like:
- Finn McCool – Irish red ale
- Oat Soda – Double IPA
- Palm Beach Pilz – German pilsner
- And more
But maybe the best part about this brewery trifecta is that each taproom sells beers from the others. So maybe just choose the one closest to where you’re staying and call it a day!
Breweries in Palm Beach County: Boynton Beach
Just a quick drive south (20 minutes) from West Palm Beach you’ll find another handful of great breweries in Palm Beach County in Boynton Beach.
10. Copperpoint Brewing Company
Copperpoint Brewing Company—not to be confused with Coppertail Brewing Co. in Tampa’s historic Ybor City—is one of Palm Beach County’s most popular and proud to still be independently owned and operated.
They have a large taproom with both indoor and outdoor seating, employ a rotating diverse list of food trucks on site, and offer free brewery tours every Saturday.
Stop by Copperpoint to enjoy such brews as:
- Copperpoint Lager
- A-10 Red IPA
- Blood Orange Wit – Belgian wit
- Rabbit Espresso Stout – Nitro cream stout with coffee (Nitro beers are the best beers imo)
- Coco For Coxness – Imperial stout with coconut
- Briny Breezes – Sour ale with key lime, coriander, and salt
…and many more that I didn’t list here. Obviously they have something for every kind of taste.
11. Due South Brewing Co.
Due South Brewing Co. is responsible for one of my new favorite beers—the Caramel Cream Ale. I first had this beer while hanging out in Orlando and it has been such a game changer. Do yourself a favor and stop by Due South while checking out the breweries in Palm Beach County.
Due South has a large taproom and indoor beer garden for events like craft fairs, yoga classes, paint nights, and more. (For what it’s worth, they also serve wine and craft sodas.) Plus, you gotta love a brewery that offers happy hour!
Besides the delicious caramel cream ale you can try:
- Category 3 and Category 5 IPAs
- Their Very Vanilla caramel cream ale
- Key Lime Pie Coastline Lager
- Honey Vanilla Wheat
- And others
12. NOBO Brewing Company
Located in the heart of North Boynton Beach is NOBO Brewing Company and I bet you can’t guess what NOBO stands for. Oh, you haven’t started drinking yet? Then you’re good.
NOBO Brewing Company operates an indoor/outdoor taproom serving up interesting beers like:
- Jalapeño Honey Blonde – with over 3 pounds of local orange blossom honey per barrel + jalapeños
- Crushable Haze – New England IPA
- Facebook Jail – something bloggers know too much about – pilsner
- Blackstrap – imperial stout
- And a long list of others/rotating/coming soon varieties
Breweries in Palm Beach County: Boca Raton
As the southernmost city in Palm Beach County, Boca Raton is known for golf courses and beaches and… ok what else? Little else. But I’m on a mission to make it known for craft beer too. Check out these Boca Raton breweries while visiting Palm Beach County. Maybe in between tee times.
13. Barrel of Monks Brewing
Given that Belgian beers are possibly my favorite beers, any brewery with the name Monks in it has captured my heart from the get-go. Barrel of Monks Brewing in Boca Raton is no different… but it is different from just about all the other breweries in Palm Beach County.
At BoM you can drink:
- Single in the Sun – Belgian-style blonde ale
- Abbey Terno – Belgian Dubbel
- Three Fates – Belgian Tripel
- Wizard – Belgian-style Witbier whose logo is reminiscent of Gandalf, my favorite wizard if you were wondering. A Belgian wit with a Lord of the Rings vibe? I am here for it!
- And a long list of others
You can try all these beers and more in their “laid-back and lusciously dark taproom” (their words), enjoy eats from their partner food provider Cheffrey Eats, and even take tours of the brewery while you’re there.
14. Crazy Uncle Mike’s
Crazy Uncle Mike’s—the home of “brews, bites, and beats”—is a brewery, restaurant, and music venue, not just a simple taproom.
But yes, this is where they brew all their delicious beers. Brews like:
- Physical Graffiti – New England IPA
- Mike Check – New England double IPA
- License to Pils – Czech Pilsner
- Flower Girl – Belgian Witbier
- Lite My Fire – Lite Blonde Lager
- And many more
Crazy Uncle Mike’s also boasts a full restaurant with burgers, tacos, entrees, and so much other good stuff. They also have a full entertainment and event calendar stuffed with live music, game nights, 90s brunch & bingo, and more.
15. Prosperity Brewers
Prosperity Brewers’ industrial warehouse taproom is a great place to experience a crisp happy hour in Boca Raton. Just off the beach, this place in the new warehouse district has such a laid-back, wear your flip-flops, vibe.
Some of the beers you can try here are:
- Mexican Hot Chocolate – Imperial stout
- Cinnamon Vanilla English Ale
- Earl Grey Kolsch (beers with tea flavors are another of my new favorites!)
- MSRP – Mosaic Simcoe Rye Pale
- And many more with taps rotating daily
They offer live music, trivia, a delicious variety of food trucks, and everything else you need for a great time at the breweries in Palm Beach County.

Boca Raton and Palm and Boynton Beaches aren’t the only hot spots for breweries in Palm Beach County. From the top of bottom of the Palm Beach coast you’ll find great places to enjoy local craft brews. Here are some of the fantastic outliers:
16. Civil Society Brewing Co. – Jupiter
Located in Jupiter on the north end of Palm Beach County is Civil Society Brewing Co., a craft brewery that’s truly rich in family traditions.
