Don't Sweat It! Palm Beach Summer Beer Fest is Here

South Florida has a reputation as a hot spot -- in more ways than one. It's July -- not only
is that summer sun hot, there can be enough humidity to make for a challenging hair day, and some of those storms seem to come out of nowhere. With Summer in full gear, escapes to the beaches and breezes cool it off during the day, while the nightlife sizzles. Sounds like a perfect time for a beerfest! And, it is. The Palm Beach Summer Beer Fest is back for its fifth year on July 22 indoors at the South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center. No matter what Mother Nature doles out, there's no need to sweat it, because this is one hot fest that stays cool and dry. Check out the preview story from last year, which was my fourth year attending this fest.

March 13, 2017: DUE SOUTH BREWING EXPANDS DISTRIBUTION TO TAMPA AND WEST FLORIDA THIS WEEK


Jupiter Craft Brewers Fest Knocks It Out of the Park

Saturday started off a bit chilly for most South Floridians, with temps in the upper 40's
early on (this writer shelved a 5k around Abacoa after one mile and headed indoors for the treadmill). Eventually, the hazy sky gave way to bright sunshine and comfortable low-70°weather ... perfect for the 11th Annual Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival at Roger Dean Stadium! 

The Jupiter Saturday afternoon beerfest featured over 50 breweries, many from across Florida. The award-winning Field of Beers beer and food pairing event once again took place inside the Stadium on Friday night. (See last week's preview story here.)  Tickets for both events sold out online, and there were 1200 tickets available at the gate for Saturday's fest. Portions of the proceeds benefit Autism Project of Palm Beach County and Surfers Healing.

FUNKY BUDDHA BREWERY TO RELEASE NEW FLAGSHIP BEER YEAR-ROUND; 2017 DISTRIBUTION AND TAP ROOM CALENDAR RELEASED


Neither Rain .. Nor Wind .. Nor Heat .. It's Time for Palm Beach Summer Beer Fest!

It's the third full week of July ... in South Florida: ahhh, Summer! If you're like a number of people, you might find it just a bit warm around the Sunshine State these days. So, if you're not thinking about the beach, you're likely thinking about air conditioning, and of course, BEER! And, that humidity and those pesky summer monsoons?  Forget about 'em ..... It's time for Palm Beach Summer Beer Fest!  (I hear the cheers). Get ready to party South Florida style.


We Got Funky: Maple Bacon Coffee Porter Day 2016 at Funky Buddha Brewery

I didn't attend the prior two Maple Bacon Coffee Porter Day festivals hosted by Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park.  Last year (2015), the event fell about a week before an already-scheduled weekend trip for a concert in Fort Lauderdale. I had tracked the release dates of the prized MBCP around Lauderdale, and I was thrilled to find it on tap at American Social.  By the way, if you haven't figured it out yet, not only does this beer have its own Day, it has its own acronym (MBCP; it IS a mouthful). 

The Point Is ..... When In South Florida, Make a Visit to Copperpoint Brewing Co.

About a week before the Holidays 2015, I found myself in South Florida for a weekend -- you know, that drive south down I-95 that I like to do (mainly for beer, but there are other things, too).  On Saturday night, I thought I'd stop at Copperpoint Brewing Company in Boynton Beach.  I had heard good things about the place, and it was "on my list."  Before I start rambling, let me just say that the "point" about this is .... you should visit here, too.  That said, here we go......


Merry Christmas!



Merry Christmas, Everyone!

May your pint glasses, steins and mugs be full of Christmas cheer!

Thank you!


Peace, Love, Pints®

SaltWater Brewery Celebrates Two Years: Get Reeled In

Vanilla Sea Cow, tapped at 1pm;
Sea Cow Milk Stout, with, well,
vanilla ... As good as it sounds
What do you get when you combine 40 house beers, plus beers from other Florida breweries and three breweries-in-planning, three food trucks, all day music, timed beer tappings, an inside tap room bar, an outside beer truck, a souvenir glass and 70+ degree weather ... not to mention it's December? Pretty much everything you need for a rockin' Two-Year Anniversary Party at South Florida's SaltWater Brewery in Delray Beach. 

This past Saturday, December 19, SaltWater Brewery celebrated two-years young with an all-day Block Party. For several weeks leading up to the epic event, the brewery announced its taplist on social media -- and with each new post, the taplist grew.  There were four timed releases throughout the day, and at least 10 beers were on tap continously.  And, having simply one or two brews for each timed release just wouldn't be enough, so we're talking about ten beers for each tapping at 1pm, 3pm (Sour Hour), 5pm and 7pm. Following that, at 9pm, the taps rotated to "kick" those kegs!






Now Boarding: Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy Your "FLLight"... at LauderAle Brewery

It's THIS way....
I can't tell you how to get here.  I can only tell you it's in Fort Lauderdale, it's in an industrial-warehouse park, it's close to the airport, it's not too far from US 1, and it's closeby to overhead expressway ramps. So, unless you know the area, just get your Google maps and GPS in gear, and just get here...because ... you're gonna like it. 

Where?  I'm talking about LauderAle Brewery, located at 3305 SE 14th Ave. in Ft. Lauderdale. It's the city's first (and only) nano-brewery. 

I gotta tell you, though, for a 1-barrel system, this place sure brews a lot of beer. On the night I visited, this was the tap list (of their own beers):  Heisenberg Hefe, Lordy Gourdy, Berry Nice, Monkey Red Ale, Mild Child (English Mild), Immigration IPA, Bush Brown, Sizzler Saison, Mr. White's Wit, Port Everglades Porter and SS Stout.
