Ill Repute by 4 Hands Brewing

It’s been a while, yes, but I’m still alive. I’ve been working at Bay Cannon Brewing Company in West Tampa since they opened the first weekend in August. What a fantastic ride it’s been! I think I’ll do some posts on the brewery, just to kind of get it out there a bit more. I […]

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 […]

Jolly Russian (2018) by Odell Brewing

When I lived in Illinois I made several treks to St. Louis to explore some of the better craft beer stores. Missouri can get several beers from breweries that I couldn’t get in Illinois. Generally you could only get core beers from Odell, who are located in Fort Collins, CO. However, where I was located […]

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 […]

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 […]

Baby Scoop on Nitro by 3 Sons Brewing

Our first trip to 3 Sons Brewing in Dania Beach, FL comes on the back of our two days of following around one of our favorite metal bands from Finland, Swallow the Sun. So, the day after we witnessed the show in Margate, we definitely had to hit up some local spots. 3 Sons is […]

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’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, […]
