Bringing local flare, gourmet food 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 crafted for beer and food lovers alike.
With a taproom filled with community tables, a Biergarten and an enormous brewery, the new Brix Project is going to be your new favorite hangout spot. The bar, high-top tables and community tables are all a first-come first-served basis. Don’t be shy!
“These gathering points were designed with making new friends in mind.”
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. The menu consists of out-of-this-world items that you wouldn’t usually find at your local pub. Muffaletta sandwiches, wood-fired salmon, black truffle mac and cheese, house-made chicharrones: you name it, they have it.
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. Everything on the menu is hand-crafted with their customers in mind.
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 Playalinda Brewing Co.’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. In 2017, 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.
The Brix Project is now offering Sunday Brunch, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ! Savory favorites like Shrimp & Grits, Chicken & Waffles and Stuffed French Toast will be served alongside specialty beverages such as Wahoo Coffee’s Cold Brewed Nitro Coffee (Wahoo Coffee is located in Cocoa Beach), Mango & Prosecco or Schofferhofer Grapefruit Mimosas, and “Blonde” Mary’s (PBC’s Bottomless Blonde + Bloody Mary Mix).
