Best of Manatee/Bradenton Awards

We’re honored to have won Best Locally Brewed Beer at this year’s B.O.M.B. awards for our V Twin Vienna Lager, and we’re proud to be a part of this awesome community! Here’s what The Bradenton Times said:

Bradenton is now Beer City with, count ‘em, four local breweries in Manatee County! Best of all, they each have tap houses from which to enjoy their offerings fresh from the vats. While all four offer very righteous brews, there is one in particular that has emerged as Bradenton’s hometown beer.

Motorworks Brewing Company is simply ahead of the curve when it comes to all of the entrants in this quickly growing industry, and their flagship beer, Motorworks V-Twin Lager, stands up well against any domestic beer in the country.

A Vienna-style lager, V-Twin pours golden copper with flavors of bready wheat and caramel, with grassy hops and a smooth, caramelly finish. At 4.7 percent ABV, it’s a rare craft beer that is “session friendly,” which basically means you can drink a few and still get up from your stool without stumbling.

Owners Frank and Denise Tschida have created a serious brewery right here in B-town that is quickly gaining traction as one of Florida’s premier craft-brew brands. You’ll see it on tap and in stores throughout the state’s larger markets, and it was named the Best Large Brewery in Florida at the 2017 Best Florida Beer Pro festival, which included 779 judged entries in 31 Medal groups.

Tschida gives all the credit to head brewer Bob Haa and his crew, calling him “the mastermind behind the beer.” Motorworks has a full slate of beer and there’s not a weak link in the chain. From other crowd-friendly craft beer standards like their Rollcage Red, Cruiser Kolsch and IPA, to inventive offerings like the Midnight Espresso Porter, Orange Blossom Ale and the perfect-for-Florida-summers Pulp Friction Grapefruit IPA, Motorworks has something for every beer lover’s palate. And your can enjoy it in their super cool tap room or Florida’s largest beer garden, out back, where there’s live music, bocci ball and corn hole courts to keep you entertained.
