​I’m not going to mention the song at all. Not going to happen.  I am going to mention, however, that Ormond Brewing took a bit of a tropical visual approach with their thick and bold Hot Kokomo (Imperial Stout, 10% ABV, 52 IBU). This beer is listed as ‘hot’ in both the name (obviously) and … Continue reading Brew Review – Hot Kokomo by Ormond Brewing @ormond_brewing

​If I have to go somewhere strange, I usually pull up the street view on Google Maps. It helps to see where I’m going so there’s no bizarre surprises.  Unless you’re going to Barley Mow’s production facility in Largo. Then you see this: Yup, pretty much. The facility, situated in the back of a small … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Barley Mow Production Facility @barleymowbrew #mowbeer

​It is now almost comical to me how often I pass by the Cigar City Brewpub at Tampa International Airport. Ask me a year or so ago, and I would have easily told you I would never see it. Now, it’s really no big. Good Cubans, though.  My one thing, however, is the beers produced … Continue reading Brew Review – Yoga Pants by Cigar City Airport Brewpub @cigarcitybeer

​Many, many months ago, I reviewed Islamorada Beer Company’s signature Sandbar Sunday. In that article, I referenced another Florida Keys-based article, written by someone decrying the fact that Islamorada Beer Company’s products were contract brewed out-of-state.  That article can be deleted now, thank you. Islamorada just opened their new 25,000 sq. ft. facility in Ft. … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Islamorada Beer Co., Ft. Pierce @islamoradabeer

​I used to love watching Iron Chef.  Not the snazzy new Alton Brown one, but the old school, late 90’s Japanese insanity one. Every so often someone would absolutely go crazy ape bonkers with ingredients in quantities they could never replicate in a normal restaurant without having to charge $1k a plate. I even remember … Continue reading Brew Review – A Hotter Blonde by Big Top Brewing Co. @bigtopbrewco
