A Brewery With Iconic Power

Matt and I had the chance to spend a weekend in Vero Beach for the Sunshine State Eggfest 2018. Quite an interesting experience. You just may see some future blog posts on Green Egg smoking competitions, wink wink. 

Matt was checking out places to go Friday night, and he mentioned a converted diesel engine power plant, turned brewery. Sounded like quite the interesting place, so we headed over to the American Icon Brewery 

Diesel Engine Brewery

The Diesel Power Plant was built in 1926, and is part of the US National Register of Historical Places. The Decor is all industrial, brick, and much of the original floor plan remains, which adds to the originality. With the power plant being built along side the FEC Railway, it allowed us the opportunity to witness a train pass the large windows as night fell. This was pretty cool to watch.

On tap, are plenty of their own brew. I indulged in the 1926 HEF, and Matt enjoyed the Diesel Plant Pale Ale.

Pretzel & Beer Cheese

There is a full menu, but we decided to snack on the fresh pretzels. Live music was being performed in the outdoor seating area. Loved how this place is a mix of history, architecture, brews and atmosphere. Totally worth checking out, even if you’re not a beer drinker.
