Cueni Brewing Co.

About

Cueni Brewing Co. is a small craft brewery on the Pinellas Trail near downtown Dunedin. We opened for business on November 17, 2016. We picked Dunedin because of its friendly community, walkability, proximity to the water and its burgeoning beer scene. We are serving all our own beers. We have 5 types of wine and 10 kinds of cider available as well. We are dog friendly. They are welcome out on our patio. We have bike racks to accommodate our cycling customers. Lastly something so many people were wondering... Cueni is our surname and it is pronounced Q-knee.

History

Cueni Brewing Co. was a dream started on the kitchen stove. Like many other professional brewers Jon Cueni, Found and Head Brewer started his obsession with brewing with a homebrew kit bought online. He spent many hours honing his craft, while friends and family insisted his beer was good enough to warrant opening a brewery.

Jon & Bren, his wife, thought Costa Rica was going to be the place to fulfill their dream. Alas, after a 3-week vacation, those plans were dashed. Back to the drawing board, after returning to cold, snowy Ohio from sunny Costa Rica we sat down to decide where to look next. We came up with 4 southern states we would be willing to move to. North Carolina was Bren’s favorite but since it gets winter, it was eliminated quickly. The St. Pete / Tampa area of Florida was similar in cost of living as Columbus, Ohio – our hometown. So, in August of 2015 we took a trip down to this area. We visited every brewery that was open. We found ourselves drawn to Safety Harbor & Dunedin but ultimately we found an amazing space in the downtown Dunedin core.

Our good friends Shay & Rick Yancey decided that they wanted a change of life as well and not only moved to Florida with us but also became investors and minority owners in Cueni Brewing Co.
Now a little bit more about the brewery. We are a small craft brewery, 4 bbl electric system, on the Pinellas Trail near downtown Dunedin. We opened for business on November 17, 2016. We feel like Dunedin picked us. We were looking for a city where we could open a brewery and be a part of the community. We love this city because of its friendly community, walkability, proximity to the water and its burgeoning beer scene. We serve only our own beers. We have wine, cider, soda and snacks available as well. We are dog-friendly. They are welcome out on our patio. We have bike racks to accommodate our cycling customers. Lastly, something so many people were wondering Cueni is our surname and it is pronounced Q-knee.
