About Grove Roots

Our city. Our brewery. Our beer.

Whether you’re a Winter Haven native or a traveling hop head, Grove Roots exists for you. It’s your back-porch bar. Your after-work bee-line. Your homebrew away from home. There’s always something going on, and community camaraderie is always on tap. So let’s raise a glass to sun-dappled lakes, moss-draped canals and dusky, orange-blossom nights.

Why? Because this is Winter Haven, and life is good.

About Joe Dunham

Do what you love. Love what you do.

Deciding to open a brewery in your hometown when you already have a successful career in a construction management firm several states away? That’s a lager of love. Thankfully, Joe had the quit-your-day-job level of passion needed to bring his Grove Roots vision—and the city’s first craft beer brewery—to life. It’s your typical Polk County boomerang story. Leave for a while, then whip back in. Determined. With zing.

Never miss your favorite beer, band or bites.
