When people think of breweries in Siesta Key, 3.14 Pi Craft Beer and Spirits immediately comes to mind. This place has it all – frosty beers on tap and a full menu. Chase a slice of the Cheeseburger pizza with a Florida Man IPA. Or dig into some Boom Boom spicy aioli chicken wings and a Punk Lemonade hard cider. Want more options? Pair a Salmon BLT or savoy Gorgonzola Burger with an Apple Pie cider or Berry Mimosa beer! 

Sarasota Brewing Co

There are lots of breweries in Siesta Key, Florida. But did you know that there are also breweries near Siesta Key in neighboring Sarasota? That’s right! Sarasota is nearby, and the Sarasota Brewing Company awaits handcrafted beer and food selections for every taste. Try the fiery firecracker shrimp or a piping hot bowl of chili, then cool your tastebuds with a light-bodied Sarasota Gold. Or, pair a burger, ribs, fish ‘n chips, or a specialty pizza with the Happy American Amber or Midnight Pass Porter.

Calusa Brewing

If you love sampling the unique, and seeing how it’s all made, try Calusa Brewing in Sarasota – another of the fine breweries near Siesta Key. Calusa folks are passionate about crafting the finest beers, and their incredible menu boasts a large selection of draft beers, including pilsners, Mexican-style lagers, and IPAs. Try the juicy and refreshing Calusa Citronious or the 36-month, barrel-aged stout Calusa Guided by the Moon. An on-site taproom gives you a view into Calusa’s beer-production processes, along with access to food trucks and mobile food vendors.
