Orlando [ Brewery “Sideward Brewing” ]
Creating the best beer in Orlando, Florida is the mission of Sideward Brewing, where head brewer Garrett Ward, his partner Mandy and brother Austin have brought many years of brewing and service industry experience to create a great product and a cool place to enjoy it.
The team completely renovated a 100 year old warehouse to create the brewery and a 100-patron tap room and patio area, allowing customers to drink beer just a few yards from where it was created.
Garrett originally started brewing beer aged 21 out of his garage. He went on to create award-winning beers for other businesses, before setting up Sideward in the city’s popular (if ironically named) Milk district with Mandy and Austin. It was a natural course for someone who enjoys the social side of the business.
That care is extended to the customer experience at the Sideward tap room, which includes a range of tasty home-made foods made in the on-site kitchen and a high quality Yamaha background audio system. Designed and installed by Orlando-based Teer Audio Visual, just four Yamaha VXS8W full range, surface mount speakers were needed to cover both the inside and outside seating areas, with an MA2120 mixer amplifier, PA2120 amplifier and DCP1V4S digital control panels for flexible control.
