About Wicked Barley
Award-winning Wicked Barley is a brewpub started by three friends Philip Maple, the brewmaster, Brett Baker, taproom manager, and Tobin Turney, brewery operations manager. Comprised of a 15-barrel brewhouse, Wicked Barley first opened its doors in July 2016 and started selling their own beer in October 2016. The facility includes a taproom and restaurant with gastropub fare created by Executive Chef Brad Sueflohn. In addition to the restaurant, the property boasts a large outdoor beer garden and a boat dock. Maple, Turney, and the rest of the Wicked Barley team have a strong devotion to clean pure water, and all brewhouse water is treated through a RO water filtration plant. Also a winery, Wicked’s team brews meads and ciders, in addition to their beers. Wicked Barley won two gold medals in the annual Best Florida Beer competition this year.
