You don’t have to sit at a bar when you crave craft beer. At the Destin Harborwalk Village, you can get your drinks to-go from The Crafty Siren. This unique beer shop sells local brews from a small kiosk that makes grabbing a drink to-go quick and easy.

When walking around outdoor malls most people default to soda or bottled water. Even in places like Destin’s Harborwalk Village where you can openly consume alcoholic drinks while walking around outside, most people choose nationally available beers.

When Harborwalk Village has events at the Main Stage, visit The Crafty Siren directly across from the venue. You can enjoy a flavorful craft beer while listening to great music.

The Crafty Siren lets you upgrade from mass-marketed beers and sodas when you need to cool off. This small kiosk gives you the chance to choose from craft beers and local Floridian-made drinks.

This kiosk operates seasonally. Additionally, due to the nature of craft brews, many of the flavors will only appear for a limited time. You may see different beers to choose from each time you visit The Crafty Siren.
