Dear Friends and Supporters of Ivanhoe Park Brewing Co.,

As we celebrate the close of 2023, we’re grateful for the support that has helped us achieve our milestones. Our commitment to community remains at the core of our mission. Community Partnerships with Make-A-Wish, Orlando Sports Foundation, Coalition for the Homeless, Second Harvest Foodbank, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, the Down Syndrome Association, and many more reflect our dedication to giving back and supporting causes that matter.

In the realm of sports and entertainment, we’ve forged strong alliances with leading teams such as the Orlando Solar Bears, Osceola Magic, and XFL Guardians. Our ongoing bets, like the one with Alamo Beer Co. and the XFL Brahmas, have brought an exciting element to our partnerships.

Venturing into new territories has been a significant part of our journey. From being on cruise ships with Margaritaville at Sea to featuring at prominent venues like the Orange County Convention Center and the newly branded Kia Center, our presence has expanded remarkably. Collaborations with resorts and establishments such as Westgate Resorts, Ole Red, Sud’s Saloon, and Sapphire Falls Resort have been instrumental in broadening our footprint.

Recognition and accolades have further fueled our commitment to brewing excellence. Awards such as the US Open Beer Championship Silver for Tupac and Bronze for Masquerade White Stout, Florida Best Beer Gold for Guavacation and Silver for Tupac ShaPorter, and local acknowledgments like Orlando Magazine’s Best of ORL and Orlando Weekly’s Best Local Beer continue to inspire us.

Our taproom events have been a cornerstone of community engagement. Monthly events like the Florida Vintage Market, Family Day, IPBCo Run Club, Yoga at the Brewery, and the Orlando Parking Lot Party have fostered a sense of camaraderie among our patrons.

Our global reach has expanded significantly this year, thanks to partnerships with Visit Orlando and recognized publications like Cosmopolitan UK, Style Canada, and Wanderlust UK Travel Magazine. Locally, we’re honored to be recognized by Orlando Business Journal as one of Florida’s fastest-growing second-stage companies, a testament to our commitment to quality and innovation.

Lastly, our involvement in offsite events, from local festivals to commemorative milestones like the Orange County Library’s 100th Anniversary and Orlando Fringe Festival with private label beers, has allowed us to connect with diverse communities and share our passion for craft beer.

Thank you for being part of our journey in 2023. Your support has been invaluable, and we look forward to continuing our shared journey in the years ahead.
