Big Top Brewing Company Boasts Local Flare
This charming brewery is tucked away east of town, and it boasts a load of local flare. Four local gents came together to build (literally: If you can see it, they built it) a brewery that Sarasota can be proud of with hints of history peeking out from local Ringling College art or the 70-year-old railway ties they’ve made into tables.
You true craft lovers would be impressed with Big Top’s approach to traditional IPAs and lagers, while the rest of us can get excited about the research and development barrels they keep trying out or the—get this—Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Porter or Jalapeño Honey Pale Ale, both of which were dee.lish.ous. Check ’em out on weekends for live music and food trucks and a flight of cold ones.
