Meet the people behind the brews.

Tidal Brewing Co. is an ode to the Sunshine State and the people in it.
This is our family that has helped create the brewery we call home.

Why I love Craft Beer: I love the people I meet. The entire Craft Beer community are almost like one big family. You can go to any festival or brewery, meet people for the first time, and walk away with new friends. I also love the innovations with flavor profiles that the breweries are coming out with. You can never be bored with the same old stuff and you can ALWAYS find something you like.
