Funky Buddha Void Shaker

Happy Sunday Funday AND 4th of July!! While it's been raining all weekend and Hurricane Elsa is set to hit on Tuesday, we're having an awesome time. We've been grillin' and chillin' in the pool regardless of the rain, I've got a pork butt sitting in the smoker and a highly touted beer in my … Continue reading Funky Buddha Void Shaker

Sierra Nevada Summer Break

Happy Memorial Day ya'll! We spent the previous weekend running around Boston and let me tell you, the beer scene is incredible! Obviously New England IPAs were the ticket but there were a ton of other styles to sample. After all that we were whooped. Thankfully, this is the first time in a long time … Continue reading Sierra Nevada Summer Break

Heavy Seas Blackbeard’s Breakfast 2021

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! As many of you know, I keep a list of every different beer I've had. For every 100, I try to get something high end/hard to find. Some have been home runs, and others, well lets just say I'd put a Busch Latte over them. This beer marks #1200 for me … Continue reading Heavy Seas Blackbeard’s Breakfast 2021

Darwin Brewing Reef Revival Session IPA

Happy Sunday Funday and happy Easter ya'll! While perusing the aisles of Winn-Dixie, I saw a Florida brewery's session IPA that was aptly named for this weekend's holiday "Reef Revival." Our one week of spring in Florida is in full swing, so I wanted something lighter but that still has (hopefully) plenty of flavor. After … Continue reading Darwin Brewing Reef Revival Session IPA

Busch NA

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! I know what you're thinking. "Brooks, I thought you were all in on Dry January!?" Well, I am, but I decided to jump into the world of non-alcoholic brews, or in this case, extremely low alcoholic beers (0.4%). After all the heavy foods and craft beers from Halloween-December, my pants were … Continue reading Busch NA

Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! Yes, I can't believe I'm actually posting two weeks in a row. Anyways, being the Floridian I am, I decided to do some pre-hurricane fishing and well, it was more fishing than catching. We did get some jacks, snapper, a whiting and a trout so we didn't strike out, but didn't … Continue reading Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine

New Belgium Brewing Liquid Paradise IPA

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! With all the doom and gloom in the news, hopefully some beer can bring you some cheer. As hard as it is sometimes, we are practicing "social isolation" and avoiding going into public wherever possible which has put a damper on our weekend. As the great Homer J. Simpson said "When … Continue reading New Belgium Brewing Liquid Paradise IPA

IPA Madness Final Four

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! It was a long weekend of fishing, grilling out, and generally being a responsible adult.

A Floridian’s Thoughts on Oktoberfest

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! For most of the country, football is back on, days are getting shorter, and the weather is cooling. To match that, the crisp summer lagers and shandies are being replaced with more rich and flavorful Oktoberfest-styled Marzens and Vienna Lagers. If you're in the sunshine state however, it is still a … Continue reading A Floridian’s Thoughts on Oktoberfest
