WHAT IS ABBEY?
Abbey is the premier craft bar in West Volusia County, located in historic Downtown DeLand Florida.
At ABBEY, we pride ourselves in our knowledgeable bar staff and enlightened patrons. Our staff is highly educated and they continue to expand their knowledge and palates with each new trend in the craft beverage industry. Several of our bartenders are trained and certified in craft beer by the Cicerone Certification Program, an organization that certifies individuals with a proven expertise in selecting, acquiring and serving today’s wide range of beers.
Here's to the celebration of community, the enjoyment of adventurous beer, noteworthy wine, creative meads, tasty fare and enriched experiences.
HOW OFTEN DO WE CHANGE THE MENU?
The Craft Beverage Industry is an ever changing landscape, thus our menus change as often as the selections available from the brewer's themselves change. This means you will find new craft beer draft offerings, an ever changing bottle beer list, a wide variety of meads, and a seasonal wine menu everytime you stop in. We strive to bring you the best selection from World Class producers. There are often selections that are seasonal, in short supply, or carefully cellared. In addition we produce our own meads crafted for the Florida lifesytle.
WHO IS THE ABBEY FAMILY?
The Craft Beverage Industry has an amazing ability to bring people together and the Florida scene is no different. You will often hear us talk about our ABBEY Family. We are not referring only to our close knit bar staff, but also to the amazing people to walk through our doors each week. We love the opportunity to celebrate with our patrons and also be there for them on their tough days. We want everyone to be comfortable, take the time to enjoy each other, and be part of the big ABBEY family.
WHERE DID THE NAME ABBEY COME FROM?
We have always been impressed with the history and consistency by which Belgium has produced its beers. This is best revealed in the Trappiste monasteries where monks produce what is commonly thought of as the greatest expression of beermaking on this planet. We judiciously chose not to use the name "The ABBEY" because we did not want to minimize the importance of the time and care that these people take into their craft.
