Grab A Pint At These St. Augustine Breweries

St. Augustine has a really strong craft beer scene. In the last five years, the city has seen multiple breweries pop up with unique and compelling visions. We highlight our top five breweries in St. Augustine, FL. Don’t miss even one. And be sure to lock in one of the top-rated St. Augustine pet-friendly rentals before you get too caught up crafting your craft beer checklist.

Dog Rose Brewing Company

Dog Rose Brewing began in fall of 2017 in the old historic village of Lincolnville. Lincolnville is primarily a residential community, which makes it an intriguing pick for a local brewery. But Dog Rose is within walking distance of downtown, and its authentic Old Florida charms fit right into the area’s cozy cottages. 

The open-concept brewery design and big windows draw in eyes from outside, but it’s the open space and glowing Ambrosia maple bar that impress people once inside.

There are 5,000 square feet of space here, with room for a shuffleboard, a dance floor, local art, and even a space for live music.

Dog Rose Brewing can be found near Saint George St. downtown at 77 Bridge St. It is open 12 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, with extended hours to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Bog Brewing Company

Likely the newest St. Augustine brewery, Bog has really emphasized a very potent list of barrel-aged farmhouse beers and lagers.

Bog constantly changes its selection rotation. What you may love one day may not be available the next based on seasonal ingredients and the whims of Head Brewer and Co-Owner Steve Mendoza.

And that’s okay. Because sticking to the same thing just isn’t how craft beer works. There are some awesome selections available quite often, including the Winter Bock. It plays host to toasted caramel, roasted malt, and splashes of what can only be fresh baked bread. There’s also the Saison Blanc, a saison aged in Sauvignon Blanc barrels for close to a year.

We have to recommend the Ginger Rye Pale Ale- a winter favorite. There’s an undeniable ginger flavor you’ll find a natural fit for any sweet craft beer.

Bog Brewing is at 218 W King St. it is a decent walk from downtown so we suggest trying to park on-site.

Old Coast Ales

Old Coast Ales has really carved a niche for itself with its warm atmosphere and consistent scheduling of live music. The beer is important, as well. Old Coast delivers with to-the-point concoctions, trading out weird experimentation with simplicity. There’s the salty and tart Salt Run, the RUN GMC New England IPA, Off the Chart west coast IPA, and one of our favorites for a darker beer- the Kookaburra. It’s roasted with coffee from local coffee shop Kookaburra.

Old Coast Ales is located at 300 Anastasia Blvd.

Ancient City Brewing

Right in the heart of downtown, Ancient City delivers bold flavors, like the Ponce’s Pale Ale with its mix of citrus fruit, pine & caramel or the Anastasia Island Pale with its taste of earthy and piney hops.

Everything at Ancient City has a very strong local focus, from the names of its drinks to the sourcing of needed ingredients. 

There are two locations to note, but you’ll likely prefer the downtown taproom at 16 Cathedral Pl. This location is also near the San Sebastian Winery.

A1A Ale Works

A1A Ale Works is right on the water. While it boasts the best views, it also has some awesome craft beers. The team divides them all into categories like Hoppy and Bitter, Malty and Roasted, and Easy Drinking. It’s all colorful and fun at this popular downtown spot. It’s located at 1 King St. 

St. Augustine has a lot to love for anyone who wants a great drink. We suggest checking out the St. Augustine Distillery for free tours and delicious drinks. We also encourage you to add a visit to the Castillo de San Marcos Fort located in downtown.
