​At this point, Florida craft beer drinkers have a ton of potential beer festivals to choose from. They range quite dramatically, from small regional affairs where a brewery shoots out 30 treatments of their beers and brings along a handful of their friends, to mega blowouts attracting megabreweries with cutesy booths set up in an … Continue reading Brew Review – Crank by Cycle Brewing & Sip the Sunshine @cyclebrewing

​Today, we’re going to be heading back in time again to visit Doc Webb and his magical Webb’s City department store, long since departed from St. Petersburg.  We’ve taked about the bikini models, the dancing chicken, selling dollar bills for less than a dollar, and more. So, so much more. Enough that Green Bench Brewing … Continue reading Brew Review – Shopping Cart Cowboys by Green Bench Brewing

​In the few years that this humble blog has been in existence, I have been lucky enough to receive a number of invitation to a number of breweries in various states of operation. Some have been open for years, some are just getting off the ground, and some are still opening.  Such is the case … Continue reading Brew Review – Hallertau Blanc by The Tank Brewing @thetankbrewing

​If the posts I’m seeing on social media are to be believed, today is National Dog Day.  I wouldn’t know. I’m more of a cat person.  Plenty of brewers are dog people, though, and plenty of them also like to name their beers after their dogs. Such is the case with Jon McCracken, the co-owner … Continue reading Brew Review – Milo’s IPA by St. Pete Brewing Co. @stpetebrewingco

​I know what a summit is, obviously. But as for a Lafayette Von Blanc, the most I can figure is that 3 Daughters has been listening to Hamilton just a bit too much.  So 3 Daughters’ bomber game is strong. And I still have a few to get through, but I cleaned out a few … Continue reading Brew Reviews – Summitennial & La Fayette Von Blanc by 3 Daughters Brewing @3dbrewing

After many months and a gorgeous new graphic overhaul, Biscayne Bay Brewing has finally opened the doors to their tap room.  I’m excited to see what they’ve done with the place. When I was there last, some time ago, the brewing space looked great, but the rest of the facility looked less like a tap … Continue reading Brew Review – La Colada by Biscayne Bay Brewing @biscaynebaybrew

​I literally could have passed by West Palm Beach’s Dixie Bar and Grill had not my wife been on the lookout while I was driving. T’is a small but mighty place.  I didn’t really know it existed until they appeared on the After The Show Podcast from my friends at the KVJ Show on 97.9 … Continue reading Brew Review – Hoplomatic Immunity by Dixie Bar and Grill @dixiegrillwpb

​When word dropped about High Heel Brewing a few months ago, they got a fair amount of heat from many in the blogosphere for an apparent sexism behind launching a line of craft beers aimed specifically at women.  Frankly, I don’t much care. I think there’s a lot of damaging sexism in society that needs … Continue reading Brew Review – Slingback by High Heel Brewing @highheelbeer @thebrewhub

​There seem to be a lot, and I mean a lot, of Pittsburghers in Florida.  Don’t get me wrong, I like Pittsburgh. It’s a fine town, Kennywood is a blast, the Strip District is incredible, and it’s got a gorgeous skyline. But I am definitely a Floridian at heart.  But they’re everywhere, including my lovely … Continue reading Brew Review – Aji Limo Rojo Ra by Darwin Brewing & Rivertowne Brewing @darwinbrewingco @rivertownebeer

​Another beer blogger once told me that when I started Florida Beer Blog, almost every other beer I reviewed came from the Funky Buddha’s Oakland Park brewing facility. Fair criticism. I kinda felt that way at times, too. Since then, the blog has grown so voraciously that I really can’t remember the last time I … Continue reading Brew Review – Tip-Ta-Tip by Funky Buddha & Shorts Brewing @funkybuddhabrew
