Spaced Out on Florida's Space Coast: Brews and Beach (Episode 1)

Got a Little "Bugnutty" on Merritt Island

Not like I really need a reason or excuse for a "Beertrip," but, I thought it would be a cool little getaway thing to do on the last weekend in June. The criteria: there must be craft beer and beaches; also, for this short trip, somewhere not too far from the St. Augustine homebase. Actually, heading out to points south from here is pretty much a snap courtesy of I-95. Well, I already knew about three breweries in the Space Coast:  Bugnutty Brewing, Cocoa Beach Brewing and Intracoastal Brewing, so this Mission Control set the destination and reserved an oceanview room at the Hilton Melbourne Beach on A1A (Florida resident rate, by the way). T-minus and counting.  


Want Some Craft Brew with that BBQ in the Old City?

Mojo Old City BBQ Brings the Q and Brew

Well, sure, I've been here before, and this is one of my favorite places for good ol' BBQ, comfort food, and some great craft brews.  If you're hungry in downtown St. Augustine, this is a sure bet.  A recent visit on a quiet night was quite relaxing, and I had some awesome BBQ and beer (but I expected that)!


People Watching At No Name Bar (The Bar With No Name)

Great Place to Watch Everyone Go By...
Downtown St. Augustine on the Bayfront

I recently stopped by No Name Bar (or is it The Bar With No Name) on Castillo Dr. in downtown St. Augustine. Surprisingly, I had not been here before, but I've driven by a bunch of times and have seen the crowds there, so I figured they must know something.  


Hidden Gem at St. Augustine Beach: The Original Cafe 11

Find It and Visit It:
The Original Cafe 11 on A1A Beach Blvd.

Set back just a bit off of A1A Beach Blvd. is this hidden gem, located at the corner of 11th & A1A Beach.  There's a parking lot that fronts the street, but don't drive by this one!  It's a laid back and chill place that has something for everyone.




Beach and Brews at St. Augustine Beach

Diggin' The Beach Scene at St. Augustine Beach!

You Should Be "Somewhere on A1A"! (That's Sunset Grille)

Anyone who knows me or knows of me knows that I love the Beach!  I am based in St. Augustine, and St. Augustine Beach is a great place to walk, people watch,or just veg out with the sounds of the waves.  It's a great walking beach.  And, you can even drive on it from the A Street ramp to points south.  A1A Beach Blvd. is quite laid back, and although street and lot parking can be a bit difficult at times, you can usually find a spot somewhere.  This time around, I didn't have the SUV, and the low-rider sportscar can't go on the beach, but I found parking at the public 10th Street lot (there's a bathroom facility there, which is one of life's most important things).
