Hug Hug Kiss Kiss by 3 Sons Brewing

“For on site enjoyment only.” Words I have a love/hate relationship with. So, it’s a beer that I can get at the brewery but I can’t take home. Gotta drink that as I sit at the bar. Generally it costs more for these bottles, BUT I do get to experience the beer that I might […]

Dark Subject Matter by Monday Night Brewing

If you’ve been following along, you know I already have big love for the state of Florida. I love the weather, and I love the local beer. BUT, I also love that I can subscribe to Tavour. When we lived in Illinois, it wasn’t available. Another reason Illinois sucks. If you’re not familiar with Tavour, […]

Vanilla Option #2 by Rock Bridge Brewing

NOTE: This is another installment of my Shelfie series. However, this Shelfie beer is on shelves in Missouri. A recent beer trade for some Calusa haze netted this beer. My buddy, Niles threw this one in, and he knows me well. I do love vanilla in my stouts, when it’s done well. How well is […]

Coconut Nonsense by Late Start Brewing

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 […]
