Customers listening as a guide explains the operations of Big Top Brewing Co. in Sarasota, FL

How It All Began

When we started Big Top Brewing Company, there were no craft breweries in the Sarasota area and we set out to fix that. We wanted to compliment Sarasota's historical associations with The Ringling Circus, performing arts, great architecture, the best art and design schools and world renown tourism.

 The best way we could do that was to craft beer that our home town can be proud of.  We plan to continue the tradition of the arts and help Sarasota add beer town to its identity. Come step under our big top and see for yourself.  Big Top Brewing Company artistically crafts world class beers, inspired by our passion, integrity, and the history of our home town.
