Does anyone know if there is a cruise ship with a microbrewery?
 
Anticipating the fun activities on my upcoming cruise, I sat at the Clipper City Brewing Company, Baltimore, Maryland, relaxing with a Loose Cannon IPA - a whimsical beer label for one of their small-production ales. I thought to myself, why don't the cruise ships have microbreweries. I then thought to myself maybe there is a ship with a microbrewery, but I just don't know about it? Or maybe there was a cruise line microbrewery supplying the entire fleet.
Does anyone know if there is a cruise ship with a microbrewery?

Maybe that's why the Corning people are / were so happy working around that hot furnace on the Solstice. They may have something brewing in the furnace we don't know about.

There is not; however, Carnival does have it's own craft beer: Red Frog. It's an ale. Originated on the Carnival Magic in the Red Frog Pub, but now found on most Carnival ships. Originally called Thirsty Frog (Red) is a very tasty beer! ;-)

OK. Thank you very much for the information. I hope more cruise lines get into the private brand business and produce some tasty results.

If I am not mistaken, NCL has Beer gardens on some of their ships that brew their own brew.
