Southern Tier Brewing Lake Shore Fog IPA

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! For the first time in too long, the wife and I were able to take out the boat for a little bit of inshore action. While we didn't crush it, we had bites all day and landed some nice flounder. Afterwards, I decided to pick up a 12 pack of craft … Continue reading Southern Tier Brewing Lake Shore Fog IPA

Ommegang Brewing Three Philosophers

Happy (Not a) Father's Day ya'll! I know I've been majorly slacking this summer, but between weddings and trips, I haven't had much time to write. Yesterday was spent enjoying Blue Spring State Park with the wife and our friend, then checking out Blue Spring Brewing (which I highly recommend). Today I was supposed to … Continue reading Ommegang Brewing Three Philosophers

Hop Valley Brewing Co – IPA Flight

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! Between working around the house and helping support Franklin's Friends, a local non-profit animal welfare organizatio3n, I'm pretty worn out. Now if you know me, I'm about as cheap as they come. So typically at a new brewery, I shy away from getting flights as you pay twice the money for … Continue reading Hop Valley Brewing Co – IPA Flight

Orange Blossom Brewing OBP Pilsner

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! It was a whirlwind of a Mother's Day weekend. My buddy Steven and I took out the boat and absolutely slapped the bass. In a few hours, we put about two dozen in the boat and left them biting. The wife and I then spent some time with her mom and … Continue reading Orange Blossom Brewing OBP Pilsner

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

Dogfish Head Slightly Mighty Lo-Cal IPA

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! I spent quite a bit of time this weekend fishing, whether for bream (bluegill) on Saturday or flats fishing Sunday. We managed to get a few keeper bream for the frying pan, and a short snook along with a few jacks today. I figured DFH's "Slightly Mighty," which bills itself as … Continue reading Dogfish Head Slightly Mighty Lo-Cal IPA

New Belgium Brewing Mountain Time Lager

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! While most of the country is dealing with snow, ice, and generally terrible weather, I decided to go fish in shorts and flip flops as it's 85 and sunny out today! Yes, I did manage to sneak out for a bit of pond hopping today while the wife watched a few … Continue reading New Belgium Brewing Mountain Time Lager

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

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout 2020

I know I normally write on Sundays, but I decided to get crazy and mix it up a little this week (ooOOOooo). After all that fishing the previous week/weekend, I truly slogged through this past week. But then, I had a buddy named Tio Blanco shoot me a text talking about Goose Island's Bourbon County … Continue reading Goose Island Bourbon County Stout 2020

Fort Myers Brewing Peanut Butter Porter

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! I have a question for everyone. Would you rather have 4 days of mediocre fishing, or have 3 terrible days and 1 fantastic day? The wife and I disagreed and I said the 1 awesome day would outweigh the other 3. She saw it differently. Well, that's what happened to me … Continue reading Fort Myers Brewing Peanut Butter Porter
