Rockpit Brewing is widely considered as the hangout for Orlando locals who love to enjoy a good local craft beer with friends and family.
Let us show you why you should join them…
You’ll enjoy uniquely hand-crafted beer
The beer you’ll enjoy at Rockpit Brewing is made from scratch using our unique recipes created right here in our brewery.
Every beer is hand-crafted by our master brewers, Danny and Jeremy. They spend hours brewing every beer and then spend weeks tediously ensuring the beer is absolutely perfect and ready for you to enjoy.
At any given time, we have over between 15 – 20 of our hand-crafted beers on tap.
So you’ll often be able to come in several times a month and never drink the same beer twice.
Unless you turn into one of our regulars and keep returning for your favorite beer.
“If you like great beer you have to check this place out. Everything they have is nothing short of exceptional and the variety is fantastic because even the pickiest will find something they like.”
–Joe Snow, Orlando, FL
We make a lot of beer with a ton of variety. Everything from lagers to IPA’s, blondes to sours and porters to stouts.
With the huge variety of beer we create, we know we have something on tap that you’ll absolutely enjoy.
But sometimes the hardest part is finding that perfect beer.
So we make it easy for you by giving you unlimited samples to “try before you buy”.
Just ask for a sample of any beer you want to try and we’ll gladly give you a sample (or 4).
To make your experience even better, we never force you to buy more beer than you want. That’s why we give you the choice to enjoy your beer in 9, 12 or 16 ounce pours. High ABV beers only come in 9 or 12 ounce pours.
“Great new brewery with a good sized selection of beers. We tried four different beers between us and they were all excellent. Friendly staff, quick service, and a great atmosphere. We’ll definitely be visiting again.”
Bobby Harmon, Orlando, FL
Doesn’t it suck to go to a brewery and have nothing to eat?
We thought so too.
That’s why we worked with our neighbors, Cecil’s BBQ to create an in-taproom menu for you.
This means you order your food here in our taproom, it’s made next door at Cecil’s and it’s delivered right to your table by us. No waiting on Uber eats (although you can certainly order from them as well).
With items like Smoked Wings, BBQ Sliders, Fried Pickles and even Grilled Cheese, there is surely something you can find to satisfy your hunger while enjoying your Rockpit Brewing beer.
And if you don’t find something… you can bring your own food in.
Yep, seriously. Bring a publix sub, McDonalds Big Mac or some chik-fil-a nuggets… we don’t care.
As long as you’re enjoying yourself at Rockpit, we’re happy.
“Their (Cecil’s) BBQ is the most delicious in town.”
–Delia Rodriquez, Orlando, FL
Those friends who don’t drink beer? Yeah, what go them covered
This hurts to admit, but not everyone likes beer. If you’re a craft beer lover and have friends who aren’t, you know this all too well.
We’re doing everything we can to ensure that those who don’t like beer but enjoy a good wine or cider are well taken care of at Rockpit.
We’re want to help you with those friends who complain “Oh, but I won’t have anything to drink” complaint.
To help you overcome the “nothing to drink” excuse your friends have, we work with a small-batch wine distributor here in the SoDo district to bring you a select wine list that should be satisfying for the wine drinkers in your life.

We spent a year creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for you to enjoy yourself in
“You can feel the love in this place”
A businessman who’s about to open a few restaurants in the SoDo area (you’ll know the place soon) told us that recently.
We the owners and dozens of our friends and family members worked for a year to build our taproom and brewery.
Yes, a year.
We built everything by hand so you’d never be able to find anything like our brewery anywhere in Orlando. Heck, in Florida…
The tables, the bar, the decor, the sign hanging outside… everything was hand-crafted by us to give you a totally unique, inviting and warm atmosphere to serve as a local gathering place for you, your friends and your family for many years to come.
You may have noticed a few “mining town” themed elements in those pictures.
Why were those added?
Jeremy’s (co-founder of Rockpit) grandfather (Homer Little) was a coal miner in the 1940’s and 1950’s for the Red Jacket and Island Creek Coal companies. Jeremy’s mom tells him story after story of the long hours Homer put in, just so they could put food in their stomachs and clothes on their backs. He was simply the hardest working man anyone in the family ever knew.
To pay homage to that the blue collar work ethic of Homer, we create a coal-country inspired brewery in his honor.
So when you walk into Rockpit, you’ll be reminded that this is a place for hard-working people, just like you.
“Rockpit is our new hangout. Amazing beer and staff. The atmosphere is welcoming, spacious, and great for private parties. Cecil’s bbq is right next door, and there is a menu at Rockpit that you can order from, which Cecil’s will deliver. Go there hungry and thirsty! We absolutely love this place!”
– Scott Thompson, Orlando, FL
Want to know the two most asked questions we’re asked here at Rockpit?
- Are you dog friendly?
- Are you kid friendly?
And the answer to both of those questions is…
Every one of us owners and our head brewer, Danny, have kids ranging from the ages of 1 to 25 (guess that dates a few of us). So it’s only natural that we are kid friendly. In fact, you’ll probably see our kids in the brewery every once in a while.
And being dog parents and dog lovers we absolutely welcome our canine friends at Rockpit.
We even have water bowls readily available for them so you don’t have to worry about them going thirsty.
So bring the kids and canines and enjoy a few beers with them at Rockpit.
“Loved the laidback atmosphere and the staff was super friendly. They’re dog friendly too, so that scored major bonus points with me.”
– Jennifer Hershey

Although our parking lot in front of the brewery only has around 20 spaces, we have another 30+ spots across the street at the DoSo office suites.
Please don’t park at ABC liquor. You can also park at Cecil’s BBQ after they close for the night. Which is normally 9 PM every night.

“This is the best brewery in town. The beer is great (have not had a bad one yet). The staff is very friendly and the service is great. Place looks awesome and the food is great. It’s also family and pet friendly. Look forward to going here every chance I get.“

The only email locals read every week.Every week, co-founder Chris Rock sends out a few emails that's been described as "must-read" or "the only email I read" by subscribers. Why?
Because he doesn't send the typical "Here's what happening at xyz brewery this week" type of emails.
Instead he sends insider stories, funny content, what beer will be on our taps soon (so you can plan accordingly) and upcoming events at RockPit.
