Ivanhoe Park Brewing Company is the overwhelming winner of our Best Brewpub/Microbrewery Foodster Award for Independent Restaurants. Winter Garden’s Crooked Can Brewing Company was voted second most popular and relative newcomer Sideward Brewing Co. took third place.
“Ivanhoe has my vote!” wrote Erica Konyak. “All the beers are good, and I love that their head brewer is female.” (That would be Amanda Mailey.)
“Love it love it,” wrote Kevin QKev about his vote for Ivanhoe Park. And Rosalinda Torres declared, “Ivanhoe beer is magic in a brew.”
Crooked Can is the anchor of Plant Street Market and its brews are often seen on restaurant and bar beer lists throughout the area.
Sideward Brewing is one of the newer additions to Orlando’s Milk District. It’s small but it’s making an impact. And watch for a collaboration with cross-street restaurant MX Taco and Tin & Taco. The two taquerias will soon start selling a beer brewed especially for them by Sidewards.
Congratulations to the winners and all the finalists.
