I am making a trip this month to Florida for a wedding.  I'm flying in to Orlando and staying in Titusville.  I may also make a day trip up to Jacksonville to pick up a friend.  So are there any great breweries I should stop at in those areas?

Lots going on in those towns.  Let me get back to you on that when I have time to research.

Jacksonville welcomes you! Let me know if you're up for a beer while you are in town. Highly recommend Aardwolf Brewery.

Playalinda Brewing is in Titusville and the brewer there, Ron Raike, is in my opinion the best brewer in Florida.  When he was a homebrewer he won Southeast brewer of the year at least three times.  Several years after he stopped homebrewing (he brewed for Shipyard), he could still pull best of show winners out of his closet.
So go there.
And tell him I said hello.

I was very impressed with Bug Nutty in Merritt Island. Very diverse selection on tap in their tasting room.  Small operation with a very cool set up.  Everything I had there was spot on!

Just left there.  Seriously good beer.  Creative too.  Going back before we leave.
