  • Brew Review – Jefficus Stout by Half Wall Brewery April 9, 2024
    To have a sports bar with a rather large tap list is nothing new. To have a sports bar with a tap list that makes some of their own beers, that’s a bit surprising. To have a sports bar chain with massive tap lists that make their own beers and distribute packaged beer to retail […]
  • Brew Review – Jan. Flight at Dog Rose Brewing April 3, 2024
    If you have been listening to the Florida Beer Podcast, as you hopefully are, you will know that recently we featured St. Augustine Experiences, a tour company based in St. Augustine whose offerings aren’t just the history of the city. There’s a lot of modern fun to be had there, and that’s part of the […]
  • Brew Review – Watch Stander by Veterans United and The Fire Watch March 30, 2024
    It is a sad fact to understand the rates of suicide amongst our Armed Forces veterans. Numbers can range between branches of service and years served, but one suicide is one too many. To help combat this, organizations such as The Fire Watch are providing safe places and spaces for these veterans to go. Based […]
  • Our 10th Anniversary with St. Pete Beach Blonde Ale by 3 Daughters March 29, 2024
    Today is the 10th anniversary of Florida Beer Blog! What started as a silly little hobby on a trip has grown to a significantly larger silly little hobby with over 1,400 individual posts, a podcast with over 150 episodes, and a large backlog of beers to drink, people to talk to, and content to release. […]
  • Brew Review – Strawberry Shakedown by Crooked Thumb March 28, 2024
    Funny enough, my absolute panic and concern for this beer did not start until the moment I went to open a can. I was a little afraid that maybe I had gotten myself into a thick and crunchy dessert smoothie sour. That being said, I’m not totally sure that Safety Harbor-based Crooked Thumb ever made […]
  • Brew Review – English Session Ale by Dunes Brewing March 26, 2024
    As a beer listed as an English Session Ale, it’s conceptually similar (or pretty much) to an English Mild. It’s funny how these beers have always had one foot in the door of the Florida craft beer community. It’s not going to overtake the IPA by any stretch of the imagination. But it’s always there, […]
  • Brew Review – The Beholders by Mythk Brewing March 25, 2024
    Keeping an intentionally mysterious and esoteric public facade on social media is great for building a brand and street cred, but it does make it hard to write a blog post. Here we are with Mythk Brewing, a quasi-Norse, slightly dark gypsy brewer based in the Tampa Bay area. Do I know almost anything about […]
  • Brew Review – Key Lime Pie by Swamp Head March 22, 2024
    I’ve mentioned this before, and I really don’t like getting political on this blog, but naming strawberry shortcake the Official State Dessert back in 2022 was not a great idea. While strawberries have an important role to play in the economy of the central Gulf Coast region of the state, the key lime and it’s […]
