Darwin's on 4th, the Sarasota restaurant at 1525 4th St., made a USA Today list of the best brewpubs in the country.

The newspaper asked Joe Tucker, the executive director of RateBeer.com, to pick his favorite restaurants that brew their own beer. Tucker placed Darwin's on his "best brew pubs/taprooms for food quality" list.

"I am extremely happy and so proud of the entire Darwin's team for this accomplishment," owner and chef Darwin Santa Maria said in a news release.

Santa Maria is working on a stand-alone production brewery, Darwin Brewing Co., at 803 17th Ave. W. in Bradenton. It is projected to open in the middle of this year.

Tucker had praise for other Florida breweries too, citing Cigar City in Tampa and Funky Buddha in Oakland Park for the quality of their beers.
