Good Liquid Brewing Co. has opened at Waterside Place, Lakewood Ranch’s first village in Sarasota County.

The brewpub also has a sister location, which opened four years ago, in Bradenton’s Fountain Plaza on 14th Street West. Joe Guli, a chef who once worked with Wolfgang Puck and is currently CEO of the Sarasota-based Tableseide Restaurant Group (Libby’s, Circo), partnered with Mike and Sandra Krail, co-owners of the original Bradenton Good Liquid Brewing Co., in the new venture.

The Waterside Place location has seating for 175 inside and out on a large patio. The brewpub’s philosophy is “life is too short to drink bad liquid” and the brewery’s success is achieved by following a core brewing process while adding creative ingredients, according to a press notice.

Among the many beers offered are the Mixed Berry Jalapeno Cream Ale, The Fruity Bits Milkshake IPA and the Coconut Key Lime Sour. Brewmaster Mike Krail and his team of brew tenders also make cocktails from a wine and spirits assortment. The lake-front pub’s food menu includes black and blue sliders, avocado egg rolls, cast-iron meatballs, smoked ribs, beer can nachos and full entrees.

Good Liquid Brewing Co., at 1570 Lakefront Drive, Lakewood Ranch, is currently open from 4 to 9 p.m. with plans for adding lunch hours. For more information, call 941-253-0423 or visit goodliquidbrewingcompany.com.
