Greg Rapp opened his brewery and tasting room in an industrial park in Seminole only a few months ago.
Everyday he goes in around nine and leaves around five, solo brewing 4-6 barrels a week, packing his tasting room with 20 taps of Rapp originals.
Last week, RateBeer named Rapp Brewing the best new brewery in Florida.
"I got a message from someone on Facebook saying congrats," Rapp said Thursday at his Seminole brewery. "I had no idea."
Out of the 1,914 breweries that opened worldwide, and the dozens that opened across the state, Rapp Brewing garnered the top spot for the sunshine state.
