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

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

Six Ten Brewing is based in the Town & Country area of Tampa. It has long been in the ranks of breweries opened with a husband-and-wife team, in this case Leslie and Chris Johnson, got bored with their business suits and traded them in for work shirts and fermenters. They have enjoyed quite the reputation … Continue reading Brew Review – CBGB by Six Ten Brewing @sixtenbrewing

It has been an exorbitant time since my wife and I had lunch at Titanic Brewery, a great little brewpub close to the University of Miami campus. If memory serves me correctly, the last time we went, our daughter hadn’t been born yet. Since we were in the area, and we were hungry, why not … Continue reading Brew Review – Dublin Over & Big Ol’ Red by Titanic Brewery @titanicbrewery

I’m fairly certain the sale of Tampa-based Cigar City Brewing to Colorado-based Oskar Blues sent pretty significant waves through the Florida craft beer community. Sure, it could have been worse, and lucky for many their Intent to Sell agreement with AB lapsed long enogh for them to become the next jewel in the Oskar Blues … Continue reading Brew Review – Triangulation by Cigar City/Perrin/Oskar Blues @cigarcitybeer @perrinbrewing @oskarblues

Mora, as I recently discovered, is a drink native to South America made with blackberries, sugar, and water. It’s basically a blackberry cider, just without the alcohol part.  Or you can make it a cider, as my friends at Accomplice Ciderworks in West Palm Beach did recently. They were at he Palm Beach Zoo’s recent … Continue reading Brew Review – Mora Madness by Accomplice Ciderworks @AccompliceCider

I think I’ve had more trouble with my tablet’s autocorrect feature typing the name of today’s brew than I have in a long time.  Escape Brewing was nice enough to have the name’s translation, Daydreamer, on the tap list in their newly expanded tap room. But I’m still going to refer to the beer by … Continue reading Brew Review – Rêveur by Escape Brewing
