Mount Dora Brewing Company

405 South Highland Street
Mount Dora, FL 32757


A little history of this place is in order. The building was built in the 20s and has been a home for many different businesses over the years. The structure has been left, for the most part, unchanged. I myself have been here for 33 years. During the first 30 of those years, I built and restored furniture. That's why you will see the collection of old tools and various collectibles in the rafters that make up the decor.

The main reason for the brewery is somewhat convoluted and personal.  Beer has been an integral part of my family. My grandparents on both sides of my family came from Germany. My mom and dad told me many stories about bathtub home-brews and exploding bottles that occurred frequently throughout their childhood. Of course, I listened to these stories with great interest. So I got interested in home brewing and then came to a conclusion that you need much better control of the process to make a consistently better beer.

One thing led to another and I was lucky enough to have found a brewing system and a place to put it. This has taken almost 3 years to complete and it has been a labor of love. I love to drink good beer and my sole purpose is to make good flavorful beer, with good organic ingredients.

The building has several rooms and spots for people to gather, talk and enjoy a glass of beer.  We also feature many talented, local musicians who share their unique styles and musical passions.  

This is a grand experiment and as time goes by we will grow and have lots of fun here. Since my mom and dad made this all possible and they aren't around anymore, hopefully, I have made something they are proud of.
