Darwin Brewing Company

Influenced by the flavors and spices of South America’s Andean and Amazonian Regions, Darwin Brewing Company is a fun hangout for locals and visitors alike.

This is truly a place to go when you’re craving a tasty beer and a great burger. And the best part? 3 Keys makes an effort to be a family-friendly gathering place that appeals as much to craft beer enthusiasts as it does to families with children out for a good meal or a few pints with friends while the kids play.

Motorworks Brewing

The Bradenton Area’s first brewery, Motorworks boasts the largest beer garden in Florida, complete with a spacious deck built around a magnificent 150+ year-old oak tree and lots of outdoor games to keep the night fun.
