Big Storm Brewing is planning to open a brewpub, at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando, possibly by the end of the year.
The Orlando City Council approved a 10-year lease for Big Storm’s new Amway location. The nearly 5,000-square-foot location will feature onsite craft brewing, as well as kitchen service. The brewpub restaurant will be accessible from inside Amway but also have an outside entrance.
“We are excited to work with the City of Orlando to bring Big Storm’s award-winning brews to Central Florida,” said Big Storm co-owner L.J. Govoni, in a statement. “The City and Amway Center officials share our vision of offering sports fans, concertgoers and others the best experience possible. The City has been outstanding to work with and their out-of-the-box thinking, and approach has helped make this a reality.”
This will be the fourth location for the Clearwater-based, independent craft brewer. It distributes its brews in Florida, Ohio, New Jersey, North Carolina and Texas.
