Who We Are...

We're an assorted team of expert brewers, meticulous production staff, enthusiastic beer-tenders, and culinary specialists, all united under our Veteran-owned and family-friendly craft brewery in Sarasota, Florida.


Dedicated to producing quality brews ranging from traditional styles and hop-forward ales to barrel-aged and mixed-fermented beers.


We've created a welcoming environment for all beer lovers. Our success relies on our unique and committed team who make brewing not just a job but a passion.


Where we've been...

Our brewing journey began in sunny San Diego, CA, where our founders, Geordie and Vic, were inspired by the craft beer revolution. They joined forces with Head Brewer/Partner Jason, whose expertise in IPAs and Saisons was the perfect match for Calusa's core values.


Since then, our Sarasota-based brewery has grown into a family of passionate beer artisans. The consistent growth of Calusa reflects our dedication to maintaining the quality and passion in every pint we serve.

Where we're going...

At Calusa Brewing, we recognize that integrity, diligence, and an unwavering focus on quality are the ingredients for success. Recent expansions include a newly opened 4000 sqft Taproom with 36 draft lines, enhanced production capacity, advanced quality control equipment, and a cutting-edge onsite canning line.


Expect more clean and mixed-fermented beers onsite, supported by a systematic growth in our local and regional draft presence. Our incredible community and retail/distribution partners fuel our enthusiasm to brew more liquid deliciousness for the future!

And why Calusa?

Why the name Calusa? The Calusa were indigenous people who called Florida's Gulf Coast home before the Spanish arrival in the 1500s. They were known for their fierceness, intelligence, and profound respect for the ocean and Florida's natural treasures.


As an aquatic-inspired team, we admire these qualities and strive to emulate them in our brewing philosophy and commitment to sustainability. Experience a taste of Florida's rich heritage with every sip at Calusa Brewing.
