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

At this point, I consider reviewing anything from Cigar City as sort of an obligation, a place that everyone immediately recognizes instead of some of the small, out of the way, mom and pop breweries that I tend to really enjoy.   Yes, they make good beer. And their relative proximity to Tampa Int’l is … Continue reading Brew Review – Jazzy Gotama by Cigar City Brewing @cigarcitybeer

It is with great happiness that I can finally report Ookapow Brewing is in the process of opening their brewing facility. Opening later this year, Ookapow Brewing will be in West Palm Beach, just south of the Kravitz Center and CityPlace.  Damian Ramos told me about the new place at this year’s Brew at the … Continue reading Brew Review – Bananas Foster Cream and Tart Cherry Quad by Ookapow Brewing @ookapowbrewing

Writing this blog is so much more satisfying when I get to talk to welcoming, interesting people that also happen to be making great beer.  Such is the case with Ken and Julia Rosenthal, owners and brewers at Clearwater’s Pair O’ Dice Brewing.  The brewery opened in 2013, a few years after they Rosenthals moved … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Pair O’ Dice Brewing @pairodicebrew

The first time I visited 81 Bay Brewing in Tampa was well before they opened. In that time, there have been quite a few changes to this up and coming brewery. All of the AV features are up and running and look pretty cool, BTW. Their tap list has more than doubled in size. They … Continue reading Brew Review – Not On Porpoise & Double Chocolate Milk by 81Bay Brewing
