​Taking a look at the backstory of the events for Independent Pilsner (Pilsner, 5.1% ABV) makes it looks like the team at Tampa’s Coppertail Brewing is going to be attacking an AB facility with lit torches and pitchforks and Coppertail president Kent Bailey at the front singing ‘One Day More’ from Les Miserables.   (Worst … Continue reading Brew Review – Independent Pilsner by Coppertail Brewing @coppertail

​The South Florida brewing community basically went ballistic when Boca Raton’s Barrel of Monks and Boynton Beach’s Due South Brewing released two different collaboration beers.  Good reason. Both breweries make excellent beers, so it stands to reason any collaborations would be quite excellent.

​I was a little sad to have written off Coral Springs’ Big Bear Brewing. They used to be a stalwart of the South Florida brewpub scene for me, but there have been a number of changes and I just wasn’t as hot on them as I used to.  One of those changes, as previous Brewmaster … Continue reading Brew Review – Winter Seasonals at Big Bear Brewing
