Portland-based Shipyard Brewing Co. is opening a new emporium in Winter Park, Fla. The Emporium is a local market, bakery and brewpub featuring a rotating selection of self-serve breakfast, lunch and dinner food items for takeout or to eat-in.

The grand opening of the new Shipyard Emporium will be held 6-10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28, at 200 West Fairbanks Ave. in Winter Park, Fla.

The kitchen will be overseen by Chef Joslyn Tusa, and food offerings will include a revolving selection of deli items, fresh baked bread and pastries, local produce, eggs, cheeses, specialty foods and self-serve meal selections for the whole family.

The Emporium is home to a 28-gallon brewing system and accomplished Orlando brewer Ron Raike will brew beer on the premises. Raike will brew small batches of seasonal and unique beers based on his own creativity and ingredient availability. During the opening celebration, customers will have the opportunity to meet Raike, learn more about the brewing process, and join the mug club.

The evening festivities will include an interactive photo booth, entertainment, and the chance to meet the Shipyard Emporium crew. In addition, 30 visitors from Maine are scheduled to attend, including Shipyard Brewing Co.’s owner, Fred Forsley.
