Fathoms Below by Calusa Brewing

As you know, I’m a big fan of Calusa. They do a lot with their brown ale program, including barrel aging Dissonance, an Imperial Breakfast Brown Ale treated with whole-bean coffee and cinnamon aged in oak bourbon barrels. So, when I heard they had released a new barrel aged brown, I was intrigued to check […]

King’s Creatures by Calusa Brewing

I almost hate to review this beer. I’m such a fan boy for Calusa, and in my eyes, they can do no wrong. But, I’ll try to be objective anyway. What I like about Calusa is that not only can they think outside the box with their juicy hazy IPAs, but they can do some […]

Color Bars by Late Start Brewing

If you’ve been following along, you know I’ve become a fan of Late Start since I moved to Florida only 5 months ago. This beer was released at the tail end of Tampa Bay Beer Week. In fact, I was able to get this beer the day after it was released. That tells me, people […]

Terminal Descent by Adroit Theory Brewing

My next Adroit Theory beer is a collab with Fratello Cigars. Terminal Descent doesn’t have the usual artwork from Adroit Theory, but instead, this bottle has a classy look instead of the cool, heavy metal-inspired imagery they have on most of their bottles. So, after tasting Dia De Los Muertos, I had to have more […]

Midnight Snack by Abomination Brewing

My next Tavour stout is from Abomination Brewing, who are located in East Stroudsburg, PA. They’re a contract brewer. So what does that mean? Abomination Brewing doesn’t have a place to call home. So they contract with other brewers to allow them to brew and bottle/can their beer on someone else’s equipment. They’re sometimes called […]

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 […]

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 […]
