  • Brew Review – Black Cadillac by Magic 13 Brewing May 31, 2023
    Talking with Jean Taboada, Head Brewer at Miami’s Magic 13 Brewing, he gave the rather interesting personal insight that he sees stouts being more popular with the ladies than with guys. It doesn’t mean that guys don’t like stouts. He just seems to see that his stout is ordered more by women coming to the […]
  • Brew Review – Namaste by Prison Pals May 30, 2023
    I am always very, very happy when breweries that release a number of IPAs, West Coast or Hazy, are kind enough to give a proper list of the important ingredients on the labels. Basically, what hops am I about to imbibe? There are some hops that I’m starting to be able to recognize, not very […]
  • Brew Review – Tropicrystal by La Tropical May 26, 2023
    The fun thing about La Tropical is when they release a beer, sometimes you get a strong dose of history behind it. Such is the case with Tropicrystal. And it’s funny, because when you take a look at La Tropical, it’s a brewery that in many ways was launched by a beer and not a […]
  • Brew Review – Shanco Dubh by Gulfstream Brewing May 24, 2023
    I know of collaborations. Anybody giving even a cursory glance at the craft beer industry knows collaborations. This beer, however … this beer is something else entirely. This is a recipe share, almost like an exchange student. It didn’t happen because of any sort of collaboration, not because of some sort of charity, just a […]
  • Brew Review – Maduro by Cigar City May 22, 2023
    It’s like a visit from an old friend. One of the original beers that got me started on this beer blogging journey was Maduro, the classic brown ale from Cigar City Brewing in Tampa. It was one of my absolute favorites. On my first visit to the brewery in Tampa, I remember going straight for […]
  • Brew Review – Watermelon Fruited Tea Gose by Infinite Ale Works May 19, 2023
    There are some cans that you open and the beer aroma just comes out immediately. You know that aroma, a heavy malt or big hop hit. This can … this can of Watermelon Fruited Tea Gose (Gose, 5.5% ABV) exploded with only one aroma the moment I opened that can: Watermelon. Practically exploding like the […]
  • Brew Review – Peaches R Punk by Pareidolia Brewing May 18, 2023
    When it comes to taking a blonde ale and treating it with fruit, you get certain fruits that are on heavy rotation. Usually berries: raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, things of that nature. If they’re small and tart, brewers are going to be using it sooner rather than later. The larger that fruit gets, the less likely […]
  • Brew Review – Rising Hope by Florida Avenue and Cigar City May 16, 2023
    There are few people on this planet (none, I would hope) that would consider pediatric cancer to be anything but truly horrendous. Having the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation supporting a beer to raise funds in every state to fight this scourge is laudable to say the least. In operation, there are some little differences from […]
