Not too terribly long after my visit to Walking Tree Brewing, I was speaking to the Social Media Manager at a brewery that is much bigger and much older than them. This person happened to be at this year’s Best Florida Brewery in Tampa and when they found out Walking Tree had won Best Florida … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Walking Tree Brewery @walkingtreebrew

​One of the best little places to go in central Florida is historic downtown Winter Garden.  It’s well off the beaten path, at least 30 minutes away from the nearest theme park and awfully close to Lake County. It’s delightfully quaint, lined with huge trees, local businesses, and the West Orange Trail cutting right through … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Crooked Can @crookedcan

​Some days I research and plan a visit to a brewery, and some days they just fall into your lap.  Driving down from North Florida, my wife and I decided to stop at Yellow Dog Eats in historic downtown New Smyrna Beach.

​The cruise line industry is starting to embrace the craft beer revolution. Slowly, but inroads are starting to be made. It’s not hard to find ships leaving the state stocked with beers from Concrete Beach Brewing, Wynwood Brewing, and more.   Carnival raised the stakes, however, by installing a shipboard brewery aboard their newest liner, … Continue reading Brewery Visit – RedFrog Pub and Brewery aboard Carnival Vista @carnival

​Many, many months ago, I reviewed Islamorada Beer Company’s signature Sandbar Sunday. In that article, I referenced another Florida Keys-based article, written by someone decrying the fact that Islamorada Beer Company’s products were contract brewed out-of-state.  That article can be deleted now, thank you. Islamorada just opened their new 25,000 sq. ft. facility in Ft. … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Islamorada Beer Co., Ft. Pierce @islamoradabeer

​Ybor City is Tampa’s historic district, and where a fair amount of their cultural identity is located. It’s crawling with little plazas, nightclubs, and plenty of cigar bars that harken to its heydays as a major cigar manufacturing hub.  Over on the west side, on the cobblestones south of I-4, lies the tap room and … Continue reading Brewery Visit – Cigar City Cider and Mead @cigarcitycider
