I just received this update from the Team at Discover the Palm Beaches. I was very excited to get updates on some of our local breweries in a booming South Florida scene.

The locations that are covered are Grandview Public MarketWest Palm Brewery and Wine VaultSteamhorse Brewing, the Hutton and Pentanque Kitchen & Bar in Northwood.

Here’s the information. The pictures are all added from the companies Facebook pages.

Recently opened last month in Downtown Delray Beach, AVANT is the latest restaurant from Society 8. Taking inspirations from the guerilla art movement of the early 1980s in New York City, AVANT will showcase original, one-of-a-kind artistic elements from South Florida artists. A globally-inspired menu featuring the freshest ingredients.

Nano-brewers Dominick Peri and Ken Gross will open Prosperity Brewers in Boca Raton this October. The one-barrel brew house will be located inside a 2,200-square-foot warehouse bay, 700 feet of which have been fashioned into a tasting room and lounge area. The duo will brew a number of styles and offer a diverse range of constantly-rotating recipes from dozen taps. The brewery’s core profiles are currently slated with an IPA, double IPA, hefeweizen, wit, English mild and saison. With more than a dozen wine already in-house, the team also plans to launch an in-house aging program.  


Opening later this Fall, Grandview Public Market (GPM), a multi-vendor food hall located within the recently developed hotspot known as the Warehouse “District” in West Palm Beach, will open its doors to the public. The repurposed mid-century warehouse, measuring 12,000 square feet, will provide a uniquely curated dining and shopping experience from a wide range of local and national purveyors. The 12 independent food purveyors are a mix of established local brands with loyal followings, and two concepts from nationally recognized New York-based hospitality company, Three Kings Restaurant Group, comprised of Bravo “Top Chef” alum Dale Talde, and his partners David Massoni and John Bush. It will be the first of its kind in South Florida.

A new food and drink-centric district is coming to West Palm Beach later this year. The Warehouse District, an eclectic urban neighborhood comprised of eight vintage-style buildings, is experiencing a transformation spearheaded by local food and beverage vendors, artists, fitness enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs. The 85,000-square-foot district is located southwest of the Palm Beach County Convention Center near Downtown West Palm Beach.  

Downtown West Palm Beach will soon have its first craft brewery, tap room and wine vault, West Palm Brewery & Wine Vault. Set to open in November of this year, the brewery will be located only one block away from the West Palm Beach Brightline station. The brewery’s owner will sell his own private label bottles of California small-batch wines exclusively at the wine vault.
