Tampa (naturally) has one of the best brewpubs not only in Florida, but in the country. That is Ulele, in the north riverwalk area.  The restaurant is owned by Columbia Restaurant Group and is inspired by pre-Columbian Florida and the native cuisine of those ancient tribes. It also boasts a very impressive brewing system headed … Continue reading Interview – Tim Shackton, Ulele @uleletampa

​I remember some time ago the blitzkrieg of brewery visits and collaborations that came from Terrapin Brewing, residents of our peach-soaked neighbor to the north. Most of those visits occurred exclusively to breweries in Central Florida, kind of within a general radius of Daytona Beach.  One such brewery in that area is Deland’s Persimmon Hollow. … Continue reading Brew Review – Holler Hopper by Persimmon Hollow @persimmonhollow @terrapinbeerco

History lesson time! From 1905 to 1912, Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railroad built what was known as the Overseas Railroad. This railroad, otherwise known as “Flagler’s Folly” due to the rather incredible nature of the project, was a 156 mile railroad extension that stretched from Miami all the way to Key West. An aged, … Continue reading Brew Review – 7 Mile Bridge by Two Henry’s Brewing

By Alan Snel, special guest correspondent to Florida Beer Blog.com. For years, Vero Beach carried the tough reputation as Zero Beach, a place where boring oldsters migrated south from the Northeast for the winters. But the Indian River County city of 16,000 about two hours north of Fort Lauderdale blew up that stereotype Saturday afternoon … Continue reading Event – Florida Craft Beer & Wingfest (Guest Post)

My hope is sometime soon I can do an interview with Matt Cox from Copperpoint Brewing in Boynton Beach. Among the many questions I plan on asking is what his fascination is with aircraft.  Specifically military aircraft. Several Copperpoint beers are inspired by and named after such aircraft, such as their Red IPA, A10 Hop-Hog … Continue reading Brew Review – A10 Hop Hog by Copperpoint Brewing @copperpointbrew

​I love Ireland. Went there on my honeymoon and had a wonderful time. Went and saw a number of places, including a particular famous brewery that everyone immediately associates with the Emerald Isle.  For good reason, of course.  I’m apparently not the only one that enjoys Ireland; my friends at Crooked Can do as well. … Continue reading Brew Review – Tri Wishes by Crooked Can @crookedcan @arthurstownb_co @raglanroadpub

​In terms of adjuncts, coffee tends to be king. Everyone has a coffee beer, and the ones I’ve been lucky enough to try tend to be pretty tasty. Most breweries I keep an eye on are starting to locally source their coffee, too. It makes perfect sense, having local brewers get their coffee from local … Continue reading Brew Review – Breakfast Brown Ale by Ormond Brewing @ormond_brewing

​When it comes to stereotypical Florida architecture, there are some easy stand-bys. South Beach, a castle, maybe even Castillo de San Marco, flanked by the pre-requisite palm trees and maybe a space shuttle in the distance.  There’s a lot of smaller scale architecture that, while not nationally recognized, is still important to the local community. … Continue reading Brew Review – Pineapple Beach by Funky Buddha Brewing @funkybuddhabrew

​I’ve gotten a lot of enjoyment recently from the depth of Florida beer podcasts. I’m still partial to the great guys of At The Bar, but there’s a lot more that I’ve been seeing lately. Unfortunately, they start to mix a bit, so I don’t know whom to complain to when they mentioned that certain … Continue reading Brew Review – Amber by Biscayne Bay Brewing @biscaynebaybrew

​As a blogger, I’ve been a little hesitant to completely embrace the new Florida Weisse style nomenclature. They’re popping up pretty much everywhere now, so I guess it’s time to bite the bullet and start using the name.  A Florida Weisse is basically a Berliner Weisse with big, bright colors and tropical fruit, usually locally … Continue reading Brew Review – Dragon Paw by Hourglass Brewing @hourglassbrew
