Founded in 2012 in a small building behind a massage parlor with seating for 12, Hourglass Brewing is the embodiment of humble beginnings. 

The dream of two friends that began brewing on their back porch, funded by the sales of toy collections, musical equipment, and some family help,  they take pride in a slightly tongue in cheek status as being the “Oldest brewery in Longwood, FL”.

They are obsessed with finding the perfect ingredient every time – from locally grown tropical fruits, to Indian and South American herbs, hops from Africa and Japan, or malt from Chile and Scotland ensuring you always get the best glass of beer possible.

The spacious 240 seat taproom is uniquely decorated with nostalgic remembrances, geek culture, and the work of local artists. Stacked with table top and console games for free play, they also host frequent live music and comedy nights.

Tastes Of Orlando was recently invited to a beer pairing dinner that featured fresh brews from Hourglass and food from local area restaurants. It was a fun time with good food and even better beer.


The evening started with Saison du Sablier, a 6.9% ABV crisp, dry & refreshing Belgian Saison. It was Paired with Natural Springs Dairy blue cheese on Old Hearth Bread Company sourdough.

Our second course was the Honeybell Wit, a 5.4%ABV that is a well balanced beer with spicy black pepper notes & a soothing citrus character. This was paired with Chicken Pad Thai from Thai Delight. Both were perfectly paired and delicious.

The third course featured Brown Beer, Brown Beer, What Do You See?, a 6.1% ABV Smooth and full bodied with malt forward flavor. The pairing of a hamburger slider with pork belly & battered cheese curds from The Spot was spot on.

For something really interesting, the fourth course featured Morlock Stout, with a 6.8% ABV that is a smooth & full bodied milk stout with chocolate, paired with a Choco Taco from Wako Taco.

The evening ended with Violet, a 7.4% ABV smooth, rich & complex blueberry sour. This was paired with Cheesecake provided by Pickles Delicatessen. I'm not a fan of plain cheesecake, but washing each bite down with the blueberry beer was quite a flavorful experience.

Come grab a pint and relax on the dog friendly patio or take a peek behind the glass walled brew house to observe the daily brew process. One visit and you’ll see why the Hourglass taproom is as distinct as the beers that are poured there.

They have different events throughout the week with live bands, themed nights, trivia nights and cask tastings. It's really an eclectic spot with cool people and some of the best brews in Central Florida
