​Grovetoberfest is back, coming on Oct. 15th. Frankly speaking, the list of participating breweries is nothing short of fantastic. While there are some obvious breweries, some new breweries, and some really interesting breweries, there aren’t too many shocking breweries.  With the exception of Angel City.  Angel City simply doesn’t distribute in Florida. I’ve never seen … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Angel City Brewery @angelcitybeer @grovetoberfest

​I love sneak previews. It’s kinda fun to get to try things well before the general public.  I also don’t like sneak previews. It’s hard to have to wait until news is officially released before describing that preview I got to try.  Such is life. Such is also the bottle I got surreptitiously gifted by … Continue reading Brew Review – Chocolate Porter by 3 Daughters Brewing @3dbrewing

​WMNF in Tampa is one of those great radio stations that feels graciously untouched by the corporate auspices of Big Music. It’s nice to know that if I ever tune in (and I can whenever I want, because internet), I won’t get a pre-manufactured, auto-tuned pop princess. No, I got early demo Nirvana, and now … Continue reading Brew Review – Tropical Heatwave by Cigar City Brewing @cigarcitybeer @wmnf

​More than one person has told me that the Florida panhandle works less like a part of Florida and more like South Alabama.  That explains why it’s really difficult to find panhandle beers in most of the state. It also explains why I had to travel to a completely different state to find some of … Continue reading Brew Review – 1890 Founder’s Ale by Grayton Beer Co. @graytonbeer

Well, would you look at that. Barley Mow made another beer that doesn’t have dark, menacing imagery on the can (Americana notwithstanding).  The beer in question is Calliope (Shandy, 4% ABV), a delicious seasonal shandy that features great flavors of the summer and has a woman dressed as a wood nymph on the front.  Ordinarily … Continue reading Brew Review – Calliope by Barley Mow
