One of FRF’s newest members is the Islamorada Beer Company (IBC), headquartered in the Florida Keys and cofounded by Jose Herrera and Tyrone Bradley. The mission of Islamorada Beer Company is to expand the craft beer fan base through their island lifestyle branding and marketing, while maintaining the quality and attention to detail in their products that has been the back bone of the craft beer revolution. After conceiving of the idea for IBC while on a fishing trip to Bimini, Jose and Tyrone decided to follow their dreams and opened the original store in Islamorada in October 2014. Ever since, it’s been a must-see destination for everyone visiting the Keys.
It is locally owned & operated and the owners are proud to be the first to kick off the local craft beer market in the Florida Keys. In fact, they are the number one top selling craft beer throughout the islands.
IBC recently announced they expanded their operations into a new facility located in Fort Pierce. This new location will increase production by 75,000 barrels per year and includes canning and bottling lines, which makes IBC one of the few breweries in the state to do both. The new facility will also have a taproom for customers to enjoy.
All of their beers are light-bodied and “sessionable” — meaning that more than one can be enjoyed in one sitting. IBC’s goal is to make quality local craft beer with the drinkability that complements their lifestyle. Brewing Florida Keys craftbeer is their passion and is shown by the quality in their beer.
