About Motorworks Brewing
Located at 1014 – 9th Street West in Bradenton, the historic brick and concrete building was completed in 1923. The former Hudson automobile dealership now houses Motorworks 30-barrel full-production brewing system, 3-barrel pilot system, 10 fermenters ranging in size from 3 to 90 barrels each, and a large taproom and bar. Their smoke-free taproom features many Motorworks Brewing hand-crafted beers on tap along with over 80 guest brands of beer. To satisfy all tastes, they also uniquely offer a full liquor and wine bar.
What makes this new brewery even more delightful is that they have Florida’s largest beer garden. Their garden offers a 3-hole putting green, regulation Bocce Ball courts, and over a dozen cornhole sets, not to mention a massive deck situated around a 150-year old Oak tree, great for hosting events and large parties. If the games aren’t enough, enjoy sporting events and movies on a 250” projection screen. Live entertainment takes place on both outdoor and indoor stages.
The brewing team is led by Head Brewer, Bob Haa, who has won a myriad of regional, national, and international awards during his 15+ year brewing career. Under Bob’s leadership, the team is already earning national praise, having just won the U.S. Open Beer Championship Bronze Medal for their Sweet Stout.
Motorworks Brewing proudly employs several veterans from various branches of the military.
