Bringing local flare, gourmet food selections and creative craft brews to you, Playalinda Brewing Company’s new Brix Project is enhancing the way locals enjoy craft beer.
Located in a former lumber yard, the Brix Project is Titusville’s only craft beer micro-brewery. With a taproom filled with community tables, an outdoor patio and an enormous brewery, the new Brix Project is going to be your new favorite hangout spot.
The roughly 10,000 sq. foot building is brewing beer with unique ingredients and serving up gourmet food that you wouldn’t traditionally find at your local brewery.
Brix Project Head Chef Justin Medina’s favorite item on the menu is the oxtail stew, with beans and red wine, over polenta cakes. Other favorites on the menu include the wood fired artisan flatbreads, charcuterie board and maple duck with cauliflower puree and pickled berries.
Chefs at the Brix Project also make a wide-variety of in-house pickled items. Medina said the menu has a “regional and international flair,” according to the Brix Project’s website. The ever-changing menu will feature items that will pair best with seasonal flavors.
Now let’s talk about beer: lots and lots of beer. The new Brix Project is producing about 10 times more beer than PBC’s original Hardware Store. With 21 beers on tap, the Brix Project will always have delicious beers on hand.
Brewmaster Ron Raike is brewing beers made with creative and quality ingredients, brewed with love and dedication. While brewing, Raike and other Brewmasters at the Brix Project only use a specific water treatment for their beers.
The Brix Project plans to move into statewide beer distribution in the near future. Next year, the owners of the Brix Project hope to “expand into the world of craft liquor production.” The owners also hope to have live music on the outdoor patio and brewery dinners in the near future.
Playalinda Brewing Company wants the new Brix Project to be a place the locals go to hang out with old pals, while making new. The seating at the Brix Project was designed for people to get to know each other.
The new local gathering spot has added a rustic and local flare to every decoration and detail in the Brix Project. The tables are made from reclaimed wood from the former lumber yard, and the retro-inspired light fixtures are from Barn Light, in Titusville. The owners of PBC’s Brix Project want “stylish, industrially-inspired details” in every corner to add to the overall experience.
