I’m torn.  On one hand, I don’t particularly care for most IPAs. I Just don’t want bitter for the sake of bitter. I just find it to be overly silly.  On the other hand, I’ve developed a bit of a taste for Cascadian Dark Ales, otherwise known as the black IPA. There’s something about the … Continue reading Brew Review – Firestorm by Big Storm Brewing @bigstormbrewing

Ocala is located about an hour north of Orlando if you’re taking the turnpike. I’m familiar with the city when it comes to three things: horse farms, Silver Springs, and the Ocala National Forest.

​Preface – Due South’s brand marketing manager Doug Fairall and I spent a weirdly long time discussing potential puns with which to write about when discussing today’s beer.

So, after visitng Orlando’s Ten10 Brewing, the one beer I didn’t try and wanted to was Havakow  … Continue reading Brew Review – Havakow by Ten10 Brewing @BrewingTen10

Bradenton, Florida. It’s situated on the Gulf Coast, just north of Sarasota, and south of the Sunshine Skyway bridge and St. Pete. Originally known as Bradentown, it was named for local settler Dr. Joseph Braden.  Several notables call Bradenton home, including Snooty, who until his untimely death a few days ago was the world’s oldest … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Darwin Brewing Co. @darwinbrewingco

Pinellas Ale Works is one of those breweries that is sort of instantly endearing. The facility is really cool, the beer names are cute, and the beers themselves are pretty good.  Really good, in fact. It was a shame that I couldn’t stay (inside joke) for longer, but I did grab a few things for … Continue reading Brew Review – Coffee and Vanilla Bean Porter by Pinellas Ale Works @pawbeer
