Little Havana is one of those neighborhoods that, even if you’ve never been, it’s still very well known and completely ingrained in the public psyche. Like San Francisco’s Chinatown with more rum. Along with Calle Ocho and Versailles, another famous – controversial to some – landmark is Marlins Park, home of the Miami Marlins baseball … Continue reading Brew Review – Little Havana Cafe Con Leche by Miami Brewing @miamibrewingco

My family and I have a special affinity for Naples’ Bone Hook Brewing. Our first visit there was literally their second day of operation, well before their grand opening. When you get to do something like that, you tend to get a sense of ownership about a place, you know? Of course, we don’t have … Continue reading Brew Review – Chocolate Putin by Bone Hook Brewing @bonehookbeer

Not too terribly long after my visit to Walking Tree Brewing, I was speaking to the Social Media Manager at a brewery that is much bigger and much older than them. This person happened to be at this year’s Best Florida Brewery in Tampa and when they found out Walking Tree had won Best Florida … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Walking Tree Brewery @walkingtreebrew

Hidden Springs Ale Works isn’t really that hidden. The springs that gave the brewery its name, that was hidden for some time. It’s also the same springs that gave nearby Ulele its name and location.  Hidden Springs is right on Franklin St., within visual range of Water Works Park and in an area of Tampa … Continue reading Brew Review – Orange Crush by Hidden Springs Ale Works @HiddenSpringsAle

Brew Review – Blizzard of Darkness & Vanilla Chamomile Agave Wheat by Devour Brewing @devour_brewing

I did something a little dumb here. Not going to lie.  It is difficult to sample several beers in relatively rapid succession. I could never drink several pints fast for clearly obvious reasons, but after a while you kinda get palate burn. It’s hard to discern some of the subtleties inherent in quality craft beers … Continue reading Brew Review – Blizzard of Darkness & Vanilla Chamomile Agave Wheat by Devour Brewing @devour_brewing

For not actually living in Tampa, I tend to see Mayor Bob Buckhorn a lot. SInce becoming mayor in 2011, Mayor Buckhorn tends to appear in a lot of different places promoting the city, such as videos about the new Riverwalk, tooling around town on rental bikes to promote traffic relief, and appearing on billboards … Continue reading Brew Review – Buckhorn Stout by Ulele @ulele @bobbuckhorn

Brew Review – Namesake Porter by Crooked Thumb

To be honest, I think I can count the number of breweries in Florida that release a beer with the same name as the brewery itself on one hand and still have fingers left.  I can only assume this is what Safety Harbor’s Crooked Thumb Brewing was going for when they decided to make a … Continue reading Brew Review – Namesake Porter by Crooked Thumb

Man, you don’t go to a brewery f0r a few years and the entire thing just expands exponentially.  The last time I took the drive down to Homestead and Schnebly Winery/Miami Brewing, their tap room was a counter in the main winery tasting room. Not so much anymore. That space has been turned into their … Continue reading Brew Review – FLorIPA by Miami Brewing Co. @miamibrewingco

Brew Hub is kind of a nutty place to be. It’s disgustingly huge, and the tap list is really, really interesting.  To explain, Brew Hub – a giant beige building right on I-4 just outide Lakeland – is a massive contract-style brewery meant to assist breweries incerease their output. The list of breweries that brew, … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Brew Hub @TheBrewHub

Titusville is about an hour east of Orlando, the quintessential heart of Florida’s Space Coast. Its proximity to Kennedy Space Center, Port Canaveral, and huge concentration of various military/space contractors keeps the area busy with locals and tourists.  For those taking the trip into downtown Titusville, some might venture into the old, bright yellow hardware … Continue reading Brew Review – Robonaut Red by Playalinda Brewing @playalindabrews
