Side Door Brewery
Slip into Side Door Brewing Co. in Port St. Lucie to sample one of their small batch brews or choose from one of their rotating local taps!
Side Door first opened its doors on December 5, 2015, the anniversary of prohibition being repealed. Side Door traces their story back to the days of prohibition, when speakeasies were one of the only ways to access alcohol and citizens entered the illicit establishments through side doors.
Side Door Brewing Co. offers six flagship brews as well small batch beers. The flagship beers include two IPAs, two hefeweizens, a porter and a crossover beer that combines a lager and an ale. Three of the flagship beers use citrus, including Florida Key Limes in one of the hefeweizens. One of Side Doors best known small batches is the Jamaican Me Jittery, which features locally roasted coffee that is cold brewed in their porter!
In the tap room guests can order flights of beer for sampling a wide variety and can even fill growlers! Play cornhole outside or relax in the air-conditioned tap room, throwing darts or watching tv at the bar.
The tap room is open Monday through Wednesday, from 3:00pm – 10:00pm, on Thursdays from 3:00pm to 10:00pm, Fridays from 3:00pm – 11:00pm, Saturdays from from 1:00pm – 11:00pm, and on Sundays from 1:00pm to 8:00pm.

With names like Lionfish Pale Ale, White Marlin Wit and Flounder Pounder Double IPA, you can tell that their love for the ocean and all things in it runs deep. Sailfish also offers seasonal beers, a favorite is the Johnny Stumbleseed, a Belgian dark strong ale full of apple, cinnamon, clove flavors!

Mash Monkeys Brewing Co.
Mash Monkey is the newest addition to the Treasure Coast Wine and Ale Trail. Brewers Derek Gerry and Pat Kirchner met in the Boil Over Boys of Sebastian, a local homebrew club dedicated to helping local homebrewers create better beer and contributing to local charities. After several years, Pat and Derek started to brew collaboratively, coming up with many true to style renditions of classic beers and added some very off the wall practices to their brewing as well. One brew day, they began jokingly throwing around ideas of opening their own brewery. The joking turned to serious planning and within a year and half of the conception of their idea, Mash Monkeys Brewing Company was born.
Mash Monkeys is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 12:00PM – 12:00AM and Sundays & Mondays from 12:00PM – 10:00PM.
Pierced Ciderworks recently opened in the Downtown Fort Pierce area and focuses primarily on unique and creative ciders.
