Old Soul Brewing
You want to check this brewery out because the name alone is cool, right?

Point Ybel Brewing Company
Point Ybel Brewing Company’s craft beer brewery and tap room, known as Hurricane Hole, offers delicious beers six days a week. Their tap list of beers includes cool beers like an Irish Whiskey Oak stout, Blood Orange Passion Fruit Sour ale and a Snook Bite IPA.
A very popular beer and burger eatery in historic downtown Fort Myers, Ford’s Garage has 15 beers on a rotating tap and more than 150 lagers, IPAs, stouts, ales, ciders and more. The service-station themed restaurant and bar is actually licensed by For Motor Co., which means car lovers will be awestruck with the cool memorabilia and even cool cars (think classic Model A’s and Model T’s) that adorn the restaurant. Even cooler? The chain of restaurants that are popping up in Southwest Florida are an ode to Henry Ford’s winter estate in Fort Myers.
