The Manzanita tree is a medium sized evergreen known for their small, twisty branches and orange-red color. If you’ve ever seen the twisty branches at a wedding, those are manzanita branches. They also have grape-sized berries that are commonly made into ciders, used as sweetners, or eaten straight.  They’re indigenous to the west coast of … Continue reading Brew Review – Lost Creek Saison by Hourglass Brewing @HourglassBrew

Props to Tampa Bay Brewing for the most interesting backronym name for a beer. If the sexy, dentally-challenged individual on the label was any clue, today’s beer is clearly made for a   P.I.M.P. (Porter, 9.5% ABV). This, naturally, stands for Peruvian Imperial Milk Porter. Heavy on the imperial part, in fact. PIMP is a … Continue reading Brew Review – P.I.M.P. by Tampa Bay Brewing Co. @TBBCo

It is starting to get a little nuts out there in Florida Craft Beer land. There are a lot of breweries that are doing great things on an incredibly small scale, some are doing lackluster things statewide, and there’s a huge number of breweries to choose from inbetween.  One of those breweries that are doing … Continue reading Brew Review – Trekker Bier by Central 28 @central28beer

Time for a ghost story.  Cassadaga is a small unincorporated community not too far from Daytona Beach. But whereas Daytona is NASCAR, bikers, and Spring Break, Cassadega is known more for tarot cards and palm readers.  It was funded in 1875 by George Colby, a New York medium who traveled to Central Florida under the … Continue reading Brew Review – Devil’s Chair by Red Cypress Brewing @redcypressbeer

They have a hearse with built in taps you can rent for parties, for crying out loud.  The funny thing is, for all of their macabre theming and imagery, Ft. Myers’ first brewery Bury Me Brewing didn’t start strictly as a brewery catering to the Late October crowd. It’s actually more of a silly joke.  … Continue reading Brew Review – 6 Feet Down by Bury Me Brewing @burymebrew

Little Havana is one of those neighborhoods that, even if you’ve never been, it’s still very well known and completely ingrained in the public psyche. Like San Francisco’s Chinatown with more rum. Along with Calle Ocho and Versailles, another famous – controversial to some – landmark is Marlins Park, home of the Miami Marlins baseball … Continue reading Brew Review – Little Havana Cafe Con Leche by Miami Brewing @miamibrewingco

My family and I have a special affinity for Naples’ Bone Hook Brewing. Our first visit there was literally their second day of operation, well before their grand opening. When you get to do something like that, you tend to get a sense of ownership about a place, you know? Of course, we don’t have … Continue reading Brew Review – Chocolate Putin by Bone Hook Brewing @bonehookbeer

Hidden Springs Ale Works isn’t really that hidden. The springs that gave the brewery its name, that was hidden for some time. It’s also the same springs that gave nearby Ulele its name and location.  Hidden Springs is right on Franklin St., within visual range of Water Works Park and in an area of Tampa … Continue reading Brew Review – Orange Crush by Hidden Springs Ale Works @HiddenSpringsAle
