As in really current. Go now current.  But it’s always a delight to go to 3 Daughters in St. Pete. The team there is always warm and welcoming, with incredibly kind and personable people like Jackie available to people like me to ask a ton of questions to. Heck, Jackie made sure my daughter got … Continue reading Brew Review – Current Beers at 3 Daughters Brewing @3dbrewing

Florida Avenue Brewing and Brew Bus Brewing weren’t always the same. In fact, the merger is still pretty recent.  Opened by founder Bruce Talcott as Cold Storage Brewing in 2010 in the shell of a former grocery store along – you guessed it – Florida Avenue in Tampa, the company changed their name to Florida … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Florida Avenue/Brew Bus @floridaavebrew @brewbususa

Brew Review – Southern Exposure by Civil Society Brewing

Abacoa is to Jupiter, FL. Much the same way that Celebration is to Kissimmee. I’ve spent my share of time in Celebration, so Abacoa was pretty familiar. They’re both planned communities with their respective municipalities, tightly controlled by a management corporation, and home to a community that tends to skew mostly to DINKs in their … Continue reading Brew Review – Southern Exposure by Civil Society Brewing

Brew Review – Raging Blonde by Veterans United @vubrew

It is quite inspiring to see how much love for our nation’s Armed Forces exists within the craft beer community. While most breweries are not owned or operated by veterans, almost all of them will pay tribute to these heroes in one fashion or another.  But then you do get some that are veteran-owned, such … Continue reading Brew Review – Raging Blonde by Veterans United @vubrew

A long time ago (and I’m dating myself a bit), there used to be a massive lumber yard in Orlando known as Mills & Nebraska. Beginning business as Central Florida Lumber and Supply Co., it was located – quite obviously – at the then sleepy intersection of Mills Ave. and Nebraska, roughly halfway between Little … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Ten10 Brewing

Six Ten Brewing’s Co-Founder/Head Brewer/Co-owner Chris Johnson said it best: Six Ten Brewing is basically the second cell phone lot for Tampa International Airport.  With their location in Tampa’s Town & Country neighborhood, there’s very few breweries that are closer. And with the beers he has on tap, there are definitely few placed to be … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Six Ten Brewing @sixtenbrewing

I am dedicating this review to my friend Javier. The first time I wrote a review of a beer inspired by the guava pastelito, he was the one to help me with the translation. I also came into work the next day to find a giant box of this Cuban guava pastries sitting on my … Continue reading Brew Review – Guava Libre by Funky Buddha/The Bruery @funkybuddhabrew @thebruery

It’s Florida. We tend to get a lot of beers named after fish here. Such is the case with the Spotted Sunfish. It’s small, it lives in freshwater, and it’s particularly aggressive. It’s cranky enough to fool some fishermen into thinking they’ve accidentally hooked onto a tree stump by accident. That is why the fish … Continue reading Brew Review – Stump Knocker by @swamphead

Man Day! Yes, 26 Degree Brewing in Pompano Beach made their own holiday, right before Father’s Day. And, according to co-owner/co-founder Greg Lieberman, why not? It’s pretty perfect. There’s video games, cigars, sports on the TVs, wings from Tilted Kilt, and beer (obviously). Greg was there to give us a quick rundown of the event … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Man Day at 26 Degree Brewing @26brewing
