Located on historic Key West Bight, Waterfront Brewery has an ideal vibe for the Key West beer drinker and connoisseur. On weekdays, tour the brewery with the passionate brewmaster, Justin Stine. Stine took first place in the 2015 Best Florida Beer Championship with his Key Lime WITness and has also won awards with the house's Crazy Lady Honey Blond Ale. During tours, participants sample the housemade Belgians, IPAs, and lagers, and take a taste of whatever experimental brews that Stine is concocting at the time. In addition to tours and beers, Waterfront Brewery operates a great raw bar and serves a variety of fish and seafood entrees. Highlights include the fried mahi sandwich, and the kale salad, which is tossed with red cabbage, cranberries, shaved broccoli stalks, tomatoes, and pumpkin seeds, then lashed with mango-poppy seed dressing.
