Backyards of Key West Podcast with Mark Baratto 166: Cayo Hueso Brewing

In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with brew-master Jorge Quintana.  We talk about how a home brewing kit from his wife, started a multi-year passion that got him to where he is today.

This episode is packed with a ton of nuggets from passion to persistence.  

More on Cayo Hueso Brewing

Located on Stock Island, the last bit of Old Key West, you will find Cayo Hueso Brewing, the brainchild of Key West native Jorge Quintana.  Jorge started home brewing in 2010 and quickly grew a passion for the art and science of making beer. Batch after batch he quickly realized that he desired much more than brewing in his garage. Jorge decided to take the leap and make his passion a profession, and secured a vacant auto body repair shop. Then began the journey of turning the space into his vision of a craft brewery. Slowly but surely after hurricanes, the birth of his son, and a global pandemic, Jorge completed his vision of “Paradise Unfiltered”.

Our small batch brewery focuses on local flavors and uses only the highest quality available ingredients. Featuring 12 rotating taps of local favorites and new ideas, there is always something different to raise a glass to and enjoy. Our intimate taproom and outdoor biergarten is a perfect place to relax and let Island Time take hold. Cheers.
