Always carefully and creatively crafted with the finest ingredients by passionate people
Central 28 head brewer Geoff DeBisschop knows that good beer doesn’t flow out of the tap by accident. It takes a much bolder approach—a willingness to experiment with new ingredients and flavors sourced from dedicated farmers and artisans. The end result is not just a recipe, but a culmination of our process: collaborative, explorative and inspired.
See a list of our year-round classics below, featuring a range of American and Belgian-inspired ales. Check out our Facebook and Instagram or stop by the taproom to find out which seasonal beers are currently on tap.
American Pale Ale
Up River is a classic, aggressively hopped American pale ale, if that’s the direction you’re headed. This copper gem has a huge hop bouquet with floral, citrus and pine notes merging together in a steady stream of aromatic beauty. With just enough malt for balance, the hop flavors and aromas careen from resinous pine to grapefruit zest, finishing with clean, pleasant bitterness.
Our UnderDuck Lager is inspired by the lighter, drier style of pils more commonly found in Germany. UnderDuck is crisp, dry and refreshing, with subtle but surprising layers of hop and malt complexity. Lightly sweet, toasty malt with hints of fresh baked bread are balanced by assertive hop bitterness and aroma. Floral, fruity aromatics suggesting wildflower honey and lemon zest highlight the bright, inviting aroma of this beer. Flavorful but refreshing, this lager is the perfect beer for someone looking for a lighter, refreshing beer but not willing to compromise on flavor.
Hibiscus Wheat Ale
The perfect compliment for warm sunny days. Brewed with pilsner & wheat malts, the malt character us subdued and allows the beer to finish with the perfect amount of thirst-quenching dryness. Hibiscus and orange peel add subtle floral & citrus notes to create complexity & a bright, refreshing impression.
Show Pigeon is an American style IPA, clean and balanced with big hop aroma and flavor. An assertive bitterness for balance that is not harsh or lingering compliments a light malt backbone. Notes of grapefruit, sweet and bitter orange, lemon peel, pine and guava course through the aggressive hop profile, both in flavor and the aroma. While hugely flavorful this beer is well balanced and exceedingly drinkable.
Miss Mary Brown
Oatmeal Brown Ale
Ms Mary Brown is a full bodied, malt forward brown ale that is smooth and rich but highly drinkable. The depth of malt character is provided by a diverse malt bill- Scottish pale malt, English crystal and chocolate malts, German Munich and Melanoidin malts and American dehusked black malt, as well as flaked oats. Notes of caramel, toffee and chocolate are prominent in the flavor and aroma. Flaked oats provide a smooth mouthfeel and added complexity. English Fuggle and German Hersbrucker hops add a moderate bitterness and an earthy, peppery counterpoint to the malt sweetness for balance.

Where Craft Meets Community
Where craft meets community In the beginning, it was just the warehouse and the brewing equipment—a small team of family and friends just excited to make something happen. The tasting room was only going to be a few barstools. But not too long after opening day in 2015, it became clear that something even greater was brewing… Upon yellow barstools, over glasses of Up River, a Central 28 community was born! While we shared with them our beer, they shared with us their passions for all sorts of things—running, biking, disc golf, art, music… Pretty soon we realized two things: first, we wanted in. And second, we were going to need to add some barstools—craft beer drinkers were bringing in some great ideas.
Today, we’re excited to host the Central 28 Running Club and the Central 28 Makers Market. Join our Central 28 Biking Club and explore our local section of the Florida Coast to Coast Trail: The River to Sea Loop!
We also host a variety of events like disc golf tournaments, live music, trivia nights, bingo, and much more.
We’re proud to have partnered with some wonderful organizations like the St. John’s Riverkeeper, the Central Florida Zoo, and the Brewing Funds the Cure project of the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more details about upcoming events inspired by our great Central 28 community!
