The Melbourne community is about to have a new go-to destination for craft beer, gourmet burgers and camaraderie when Mr Brews Taphouse makes its debut on Monday, April 19.

Located at 3945 W. Eau Gallie Blvd., Unit 109, Melbourne’s new Mr Brews Taphouse marks the first in Florida and 15th location systemwide. The rapidly growing brand has big plans for continued expansion throughout the U.S., with several additional restaurants in the pipeline slated to open later this year.

“We’ve been planning on bringing Mr Brews Taphouse to Florida for a while, so we couldn’t be more excited for this debut,” says Founder and CEO Steve Day. “Quality is a staple of both our menu and our franchise partners and there’s no better duo to introduce the brand to Florida than Brent and Gina Phillips. We’re seeing a lot of real estate opportunities in the restaurant space right now and coupled with our low start-up and operations costs, the growth potential for Mr Brews Taphouse has never been higher. With that, we’re thrilled to enter the Florida market, and we look forward to expanding our brand footprint throughout this beautiful state over the next year and beyond.”

The 2,250-sqaure-foot craft brew pub and restaurant will feature 60 tap handles with a focus on regional craft beers. Guests can sit back and relax inside or soak up the Florida sun on the expansive patio while enjoying any of the carefully selected, locally sourced beers to pair with their choice of Mr Brews gourmet, All-American burgers and fresh sides. Melbourne’s new Mr Brews Taphouse will even offer beach-friendly crowlers, specifically made for the Florida community. 

“My wife, Gina, and I are honored to join the Mr Brews Taphouse franchise family and can’t wait to bring this incredible brand to Florida,” says Franchisee Brent Phillips. “As soon as we met Steve and Kara, we were sold. Everything from the people to the cost and simple model drew us to the brand. And of course, the food and craft beer options are incredible. We have no doubt that the community will love Mr Brews Taphouse as much as we do.”
