Happy Brew Year!

January thru December 2016,
and then some!
Happy Brew Year, everyone! Or, you may hear it called "Happy New Year!"  Well, whether you loved it or hated it, 2016 is on its way out. As I was going through my 2016 stories and photos, I realized that I wrote quite a bit this year, and I took more than a few photos. Looking back on it, damn, it was a busy year! 

Sure, there was some beer involved! A few beerfests (really, I don't make this stuff up). A few beertrips. A few concerts and meet 'n greets. A few sporting events. A trip back to Indiana to see family -- and a visit (finally) to Three Floyds! A trip to Chicago for Game 2 of the NLCS to see the Cubs -- and what a World Series it turned out to be, with the Cubs getting it all done in what has to be one of the most thrilling sports events of all time! Did I mention brewery visits? How about a few behind-the-scenes-before-they-opened brewery visits: Hell 'n Blazes in Melbourne,  Bog Brewing in St. Augustine, Wicked Barley in Jax. And, this site was the first to report the soon-to-open Southern Swells in Jax Beach and Old Coast Ales in St. Augustine.

CIGAR CITY BREWING RELEASES 2017 DISTRIBUTION CALENDAR:


The End is Near: Engine 15 Brewing to Unleash the Dark Side of "Stoutageddon"


[Ed. Note: 12/26/2016: Engine 15 published the final tap list for this event on 12/26/2016. Get it here.] 

The end is near. 

Coinciding with the end of the year comes a tap takeover that may be a first. 

If names like "Imperial Chupacabra," "Hunahpu's," "Marshal Zhukov," and "Ten Fidy" send your sensory perceptions into a state of euphoria, then this event is certainly one for you. 

Engine 15 Brewing Company will host "Stoutageddon" at its Jacksonville Beach brewpub on December 29, starting at 6pm. As the name implies, the event highlights the "stout" beer style, and all things "stout," from "regular" (is there such a thing?) Stout to Russian Imperial Stout (higher ABV), to barrel-aged Stout (aged in bourbon/ whiskey barrels).  What makes the event unique is that mostly stouts -- and only beers from three breweries -- will flow from the 50 taps in the brewpub bar, giving new meaning to "takeover." 

Get On Board: Surfing Santas and Playalinda Brewing Brix Project Get Crafty

Last month, Titusville's Playalinda Brewing Company and Cavalier Distributing announced that they had teamed up to distribute the Playalinda beers across Florida. The beer began to appear in Central and North Florida bars and restaurants in mid-November, coinciding with a series of official launch events that took off in Orlando and Melbourne, before heading north to Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Playalinda Brewing recently celebrated its Two-Year Anniversary at its original downtown Titusville brewery (see story here). The release events are introducing many outside of Space Coast to the brewery's core beers, including the Bottomless Blonde Ale, Robonaut Red Ale, and Pleasure Chest IPA. As the launch events enter the final week, one beer that is splashing its way across the menu boards is Playalinda's special-release "Surfing Santas" Cranberry Blonde Ale. You'll want to get "on board" with it! And, here's why.
