Ordering a flight is the best way to get a hold of a variety of their offerings, and they pair perfectly with a burger or nachos. For a sweeter sip, we recommend trying the Key Lime Shandy.

Clearwater Brewing Co. is an amazing place for refreshing craft beers, great conversations, and friendly vibes. Converted from an old gas station, the brewery has indoor and outdoor seating with a laid back and community feel.

They have a ton of variety when it comes to beers and the staff is happy to pour you a sample or two, or go for one of their flights! Our favorite is the A Dolphin’s Ale IPA for its hoppy and slight citrus taste. They usually have live music, which always draws a fun crowd.
