About Big Storm

Founded in 2012, Big Storm Brewing Co. now has four taprooms in the Sunshine State, Clearwater, Odessa, Cape Coral, and Orlando. We have embraced our tagline of "Florida Craft Beer Forecast" by developing a dynamic lineup of Florida favorites like Tropic Pressure Golden Ale, steeped with hibiscus flowers, and Bromosa Tangerine IPA, brewed with all-natural tangerine puree. In 2020, Big Storm Distillery was born with a mission to create world-class spirits with a local flair. Our Big Storm team are innovators at heart, always pushing boundaries, and not afraid to take risks. With a commitment to exceptional customer service, dedication to quality products, and the ambition to explore opportunities left unexplored, Big Storm has become a leader in the craft beer industry and beyond.
