Local Brews & Foods
Grove Roots Brewing Co.
Great craft beer brings folks together and Grove Roots Brewing Company is quickly becoming a hot spot in Winter Haven. Patrons have been singing the praises of Rind & Shine, and the brewery's three other flagship beers, since opening in mid-September.
Grove Roots Brewing Company, led by Winter Haven native Joseph Dunham, was inspired by Central Florida’s historic citrus culture and Joe’s passion for home brewing. He has partnered with local growers to create inventive, artisanal beers that celebrate and support Central Florida’s deep-rooted relationship with the citrus industry.
If all this talk of citrus pride intrigues you, be sure to check out Central Florida Citrus.
Back to the beer. In addition to a variety of seasonal and special-release brews, Grove Roots will serve four flagship beers year-round:
- Slanted Ladders, a white pale ale
- Wakes of Grain, an amber ale
- Rind & Shine, a citrus witbier (this beer is AMAZING and is a top seller)
- 6am Pickers, a breakfast coffee stout
To make sure the brewery has something for everyone, Grove Roots also serves wine.
Insider Tip: Egg Haven (directly across 3rd Street) serves breakfast until 3:00 p.m., so if you stop by Grove Roots around lunchtime on Saturday or Sunday, call in a takeout breakfast order and pair it with a pint of Rind & Shine. You’re welcome!
This 5,600-square-foot brewery features a 100-seat tasting room, 10-barrel brew house and a dog-friendly outdoor biergarten where patrons can enjoy food trucks and lawn games, including Bocce. Guests can expect live music every Friday and Saturday night as well a series of regular events co-sponsored by other members of the Winter Haven community.
