The name of today’s beer alone should give you ample clues as to the vibe that Lincoln’s Beard, as a brewery, has.  It’s tucked away off of Bird Road, in a massive two story building behind an IHOP. I was there, along with my beer buddy Steve, his son, and my daughter, in the middle … Continue reading Brew Review – Fabio Rollercoaster Catastrophe Blonde by Lincoln’s Beard Brewing

I’m not sure I had a single beer at my wedding, mostly because I more interested spending time with my beautiful new bride.  But if there was a new beer brewed for the event, that would have been cool. Most Florida brewers tend to do just this for their weddings, as was the case for … Continue reading Brew Review – Wedding Saison by Hourglass Brewing @hourglassbrew

I am fully aware that Cigar City doesn’t actually own or operate the mini-brewpub located in Airside C at Tampa International Airport. It serves their beer, and they operate the small brewing system located there, but it’s actually operated by HMS Host or one of those similiar companies.  It’s just a little frustrating wanting to … Continue reading Brew Review – Sweet Stout & American Dark Wheat by Cigar City TPA @cigarcitybeer

J. Wakefield is a pretty popular place for brewery tours. It’s also known for yoga and crossfit on the weekends. And when both happen at the same time, you get crowds like this: It’s busy. By a lot.  The odds are that the crowd pictures will be absolutey nothing compared to what will happen on … Continue reading Brew Review – Forbidden Forest and more at J.

Sarasota’s JDub’s Brewing is using 2017 to release their new ‘Fruits of Florida’ seies, a selection of IPAs (because Florida) accentuated with fresh, local, in-season fruits. The thing I like most with the first beer, Blueberry IPA (IPA, 7% ABV),  isn’t the fruit, but the hops.  It’s a little weird that I’m so ecited about … Continue reading  Brew Review – Fruits of Florida Blueberry IPA by JDub’s Brewing @jdubsbrewing

Bonita Springs is a cute little city. Not very big, definitely filled with more than its share of retirees, and just north of Naples in the Southwest corner of the state.  My daughter’s godparents invited us out to the very recent Bonita Blues Festival (which was an interestingly good time with some pretty good bands, … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Momentum Brewhouse @momentumbrew

As an FSU grad, it makes me happy to no end to see how well craft beer is going in Tallahassee. Of those, I’ve been quite fortunate to try several beers from Lake Tribe Brewing, a Tally brewhouse that recently celebrated their first anniversary.  As a natural extension, I interviewed their brewmaster Jesse Ross about … Continue reading Interview – Jesse Ross, Lake Tribe Brewing @laketribebrew

Opa-Locka is an interesting place.  It’s north of Miami, it’s a bit on the rough side, and the entire place is themed to Arabian Nights. Seriously. For a city named after a Seminole phrase and created by aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss, the entire place is distinctly Moorish-flavored, in a sort of Busch Gardens-esque sort of … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Legacy Caribbean Craft Brewery @legacybrewery
