Bonita Springs is a cute little city. Not very big, definitely filled with more than its share of retirees, and just north of Naples in the Southwest corner of the state.  My daughter’s godparents invited us out to the very recent Bonita Blues Festival (which was an interestingly good time with some pretty good bands, … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Momentum Brewhouse @momentumbrew

As an FSU grad, it makes me happy to no end to see how well craft beer is going in Tallahassee. Of those, I’ve been quite fortunate to try several beers from Lake Tribe Brewing, a Tally brewhouse that recently celebrated their first anniversary.  As a natural extension, I interviewed their brewmaster Jesse Ross about … Continue reading Interview – Jesse Ross, Lake Tribe Brewing @laketribebrew

Opa-Locka is an interesting place.  It’s north of Miami, it’s a bit on the rough side, and the entire place is themed to Arabian Nights. Seriously. For a city named after a Seminole phrase and created by aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss, the entire place is distinctly Moorish-flavored, in a sort of Busch Gardens-esque sort of … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Legacy Caribbean Craft Brewery @legacybrewery

Pompano Beach’s 26 Degree Brewing is starting to pick up some steam. They’ve had a crowler for some time, they’re bottling bombers, and they’re teasing their new 6-pack cans. Trust me, they have plenty of space to do all of this.  So with the bombers, some of those releases comprise the Brown Bag Series, or … Continue reading Brew Review – Have an Udder by 26 Degree Brewing @26brewing

A long time ago I decided that the blog should be a bit on the clean side, not because I am (I’m not), but to help improve how far the articles can spread.  To that end, I’m not going to describe what a 2 Pump Chump (Porter, 5.5% ABV) is. Feel free to go onto … Continue reading Brew Review – 2 Pump Chump by Angry Chair Brewing @angrychairbeer

One guess where Intuition Ale Works in Jacksonville is located.  Yup. It’s on King St. At least it was. They moved into a massive new facility on Bay St. late last year, but the old digs still live on as their King St. Stout (Imperial Stout, 8.5% ABV, 45 IBU). There are a few things … Continue reading Brew Review – King St. Imperial Stout by Intuition Ale Works @intuitionale

I need to forego my usual ‘Native American or Not’ naming introduction when I review a Lake Tribe beer and go straight to the one-sheet they created for Old Chief Extra Special IPA (IPA, 9.1% ABV, 100 IBU), namely the following warning they provide: “Not a fan of hops and bitterness? Get off my lawn!” Live … Continue reading Brew Review – Old Chief by Lake Tribe Brewing @laketribebrew

Many of the new locations for Tampa Bay-based pub chain The Brass Tap are starting to have small brewhouses attached to them. They’re not entirely big enough for a full scale operation, but have enough heft to brew a wide variety of beers for tapping on-site, plus some to distribute to other sister pubs.  In … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Flagler Village Brewery at @TheBrassTapFTL @3sonsbrewingco

Brew Review – Sunshine City by Green Bench Brewing

You know how cities have nicknames? Stuff like the Windy City, Big Apple, and Steel City? St. Petersburg, Florida has a few. One is the City of Green Benches, named for the ubitiquous benches that once populated the downtown area. Those benches, clearly, served as the inspiration for Green Bench Brewing.  Green Bench used another … Continue reading Brew Review – Sunshine City by Green Bench Brewing
