Located at 131 N. Orange Ave—less than a mile from the brand new University of Central Florida’s (UCF) Downtown campus in Orlando’s Creative Village. The 3,400 sq. ft. taproom will feature 30 draft lines fueled by a 7-barrel brewhouse focusing on unique pilot brews in addition to Motorworks Brewing’s award-winning Core Beers, including Pulp Friction® Grapefruit IPA (2017 Best Florida Beer Championship Gold Medalist and 2018 U.S. Open Silver Medalist) and V Twin Vienna Lager® (over fifteen National Awards). The Taproom will also offer wine, coffee products—the brewery currently roasts its own coffee beans for its acclaimed Midnight Espresso Coffee Porter® and plans to expand its roastery in Orlando—packaged beers to-go, and a pizza oven providing on-site dining options for guests.
Motorworks plans to add a covered outdoor patio to the building which, like its current Bradenton Taproom, once housed a car dealership within its walls.
“Orlando is like a second home, and we’re excited to expand our efforts within downtown’s emerging entertainment scene,” said Barry Elwonger, Sales & Marketing Director and two-time UCF Alumnus, Motorworks Brewing.
“Orlando is leading the nation in job growth, and we’re thrilled to be able to provide both professionals and students in the Central Business District and beyond with fresh, award-winning craft beers,” said President and Co-Founder Denise Tschida, Motorworks Brewing.
