BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast (EDC) and the Space Coast Office of Tourism have partnered to launch an official Beer Trail Passport for Florida’s Space Coast.

The Space Coast Beer Trail Passport, part of the EDC’s Launches and Lagers program, is now available to be picked up in locations across the state.

The Space Coast Beer Trail Passport encourages users to set off on a mission by visiting featured breweries and Oceanside Distillery to earn “passport stamps” and watch one live launch on the Space Coast to earn an official Launches and Lagers Mission Patch.

First launched by the EDC in 2020, Launches and Lagers pair local beer or spirits with local spacecraft as a creative spin on a food and beverage pairing guide.

“The successful economic growth on Florida’s Space Coast has spurred diversifying lifestyle amenities such as these great local breweries and distillery,” said EDC President and CEO, Lynda L. Weatherman. “We are excited to see the Launches and Lagers Passport further engage residents and visitors alike in exploring the craft beer industry within our community.”

“We are so excited to have a brewery trail for Brevard County! The Launches & Lagers Passport elevates the Space Coast Craft Beer scene and is a fun way to experience all the breweries in the area,” said Zach Featherstone, Chief of Everything, BeachFly Brewing Company. “Adding the rocket launches makes it a unique program you can’t find anywhere else in the world. And the patch you get when completing the “mission” is a pretty cool cherry on top.”
