When you go to Millennial Brewing Co. in downtown Fort Myers, you won’t find any crazy beers.
There will be no rosemary starfruit Mongolian honey infused porter.
No gosé with 50 shades of grey.
What will you find? A saison that tastes like a saison. A reliable wheat beer. A dependable brown ale.
“We place an emphasis on accessibility instead of weirdness,” said Kyle Cebull, co-owner.
Instead of stretching the limits with crazy ingredients, owners Cebull and Logan Roberts focus on delivering the beer that tastes the beer it’s supposed to taste like. Cebull said their goal is for a customer to come in, see something like a dunkelweizen on tap, try it and then know what exactly a dunkelweizen-style beer is. (Don’t know what a dunkelweizen beer is? Neither do we. Click here to learn more.)
“We’re true to the style without making the craziest beer,” Cebull said.
Millennial, located at 1811 Royal Palm Ave., opened on New Year’s Eve. It’s the brainchild of Cebull, a Millennial from Ohio who manages business operations, and Roberts, a Millennial from Missouri who is the brewmaster. Despite the growing interest and passion for craft beer in Florida, Millennial is the only microbrewery in downtown Fort Myers — yet. Cebull and Roberts brew their beer on location. It’s a dog friendly, kid friendly brewery that frequently hosts events, food trucks and even a Game of Thrones watch party.
Just about every night of the week, there’s something fun going on at the brew house:
Tuesday is frequently slated for a “yappy hour,” Brews for Barks benefitting Gulf Coast Humane Society; Wednesday is trivia night; Friday is a food truck rally and Sunday is family day. The brewery is active on social media and is always updating the calendar, so check online for upcoming events and themed nights.
Millennial is open 4 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; 4 p.m. to midnight Friday; noon to midnight Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
