Coconut Nonsense by Late Start Brewing

I’ve been onto Late Start Brewing for a while now. These guys are really doing special things with their stouts in downtown Tampa. This was another Tampa Bay Beer Week release, I believe. I picked it up on the final weekend after having such a good experience trying Nonsense with Pecan, Vanilla and Cinnamon. So, […]

Caffè Americano by Cigar City Brewing

Cigar City is known for big, bold stouts, and this beer is no exception. I’ve had this on draft, but I wanted to get a bottle and see who they compare. Really, I just wanted a bottle of this so I could drink it, but hey, who’s counting? A friend of mine recently said people […]

Midnight Oil by Swamp Head Brewery

Swamp Head is out of Gainesville, Florida. Ya know, home of the Gators. Apparently, down here you either love the Gators or the Seminoles (That’s University of Florida and Florida State respectively for you non-sports geeks). This is my first Swamp Head beer, and the next in my series of Florida Shelfies. Swamp Head describes […]

Sea Cow Milk Stout by Saltwater Brewery

In my on going series of “Shelfies,” or local craft beers I can find at local liquor stores, I bring you Sea Cow Milk Stout from Saltwater Brewery in Delray Beach, Florida. I had to look up where Delray Beach was located since I’m new to Florida. It’s north of Ft. Lauderdale. Anyway, I know […]

Coffee Porter by 81 Bay Brewing

The next beer in my series of “Shelfies” is the Coffee Porter from 81 Bay Brewing. Amazingly, this particular beer was canned on 02/04/2019, so it’s relatively fresh. I bought it shortly after that from Total Wine (surprise!) and about a month later I’m opening. I’ve never had this beer, even at the brewery, so […]

Multilayered by Angry Chair Brewing

I love sweet stouts. But can a stout be too sweet? Is it even beer at that point? The allure of craft beer was originally flavor, the bitterness, the hops. It was something different than the same ole same ole from the big macro breweries like Budweiser. I remember drinking a Newcastle and thinking I […]

Death Roll by Red Cypress Brewery

I’m going to be writing about several local beers from breweries I haven’t experienced. This is the 2nd in that series of what I like to call “Shelfies.” All of these beers can be found locally on the shelves of liquor stores like ABC Fine Wine & Spirits or Total Wine & More. Recently, I […]
