"Organic" and "local" are all kinds of foodie buzzwords these days, but throw the word "beer" into the mix and you might prick up a few sets of ears that were previously tuning you out. Orlando Brewing is Florida's only USDA-certified organic brewery and its lovely, long list – blonde, red, brown and well beyond, with sassy names like Miami Weiss and Pompous Ass (at 7.4% ABV, that last one may well turn you into one if you're not careful) – is sure to have at least one beer for every member of your taproom-visiting party. That said, the beer's not gratis, but the awesome brewery tour – held Monday through Saturday at 6:00 p.m. – most certainly is! What's more, Orlando Brewing welcomes families, so feel free to bring the kids along and enjoy darts, board games and live music on Friday and Saturday nights.

- Best for Free Things to Do Because: If we must stretch past the tantalizing "free" and "brewery tour" aspects, Orlando Brewing's taproom is casual, friendly and the beer happens to be excellent.
- Best for Tours and Excursions Because: For Winter Park noobs and foodies unfamiliar with Orlando's culinary scene, this tour is a nice intro
