Motorworks Brewing – 1014 9th Street West

If you get hungry while enjoying a cold one there is a food truck! Motorworks partners with several different local food trucks that are parked from 11:00am to 8:30pm, or later, daily.
Motorworks attracts some of the area’s most popular music acts and regularly has fun events too!
Darwin Brewing Company – 803 17th Ave West
This is another great spot not too far from Motorworks in the downtown area. They offer four year round beers plus seasonal selections from their 15 barrel production facility.
Darwin Brewery started in Sarasota Brewpub then moved down to Bradenton. At the original location, Brew Master Jorge Rosabal began crafting brews to pair with menu items.
The goal of the brewery is to create unique local brews to reflect the flavors and spices of Andean, Amazonian regions along with Florida too.
