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

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

Stone Enjoy By 07.04.17

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! I don't know about you, but this summer has been a hot one already. Thankfully, there have been a ton of new beer releases hitting the Central Florida area to cool you off. For those of you who haven't seen the Enjoy By series and their complementing Enjoy After series by … Continue reading Stone Enjoy By 07.04.17

Hourglass Brewing Morlock Milk Stout

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! This weekend the first lady and I found some time to sneak off to another Central Florida microbrewery that we haven't tried: Hourglass Brewing. It's a bigger name around here as they have their product in most the grocery stores, but I didn't realize just how big it was. Upon entering, … Continue reading Hourglass Brewing Morlock Milk Stout

Leinenkugels Canoe Paddler

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! After watching UCF bring home the American Conference championship at home against our arch rival USF (and subsequently storming the field) I needed some Grade A refreshment. Thankfully, our local Club Pub (Publix) had BOGO on not only the Summer Shandies, but also the Canoe Paddler so I had to get … Continue reading Leinenkugels Canoe Paddler

Sweetwater Brewing Grass Monkey

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! This weekend the lady friend and I made an impulse buy on some Jimmy Buffett tickets that were on flash sale 2 hours before the concert. It's safe to say we were "wasted away in Margaritaville". Needless to say if you haven't seen him, it's a must if you get the … Continue reading Sweetwater Brewing Grass Monkey

Barely Bearable Beer: Not Your Mom’s Sweet Tea

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! After a fun tailgate for the UCF spring game and some bankhopping, where we pulled a mogan out, I decided to pick up another truly (hopefully) awful beer. I know what you're thinking. "Isn't it Not Your Father's?" And nope, this is an imitator. Also, much of Not Your Father's and … Continue reading Barely Bearable Beer: Not Your Mom’s Sweet Tea

Tomoka Brewing Hazy Sunrise

Happy Sunday Funday ya'll! After a long weekend of partying down with the family and dyeing some eggs I had to go to Total Wine to restock my bar. One downside of hosting an Italian family is that they drink you dry, but it's always great to see the family. While at Total Wine, I … Continue reading Tomoka Brewing Hazy Sunrise

Rouge Santa’s Private Reserve Ale

Happy Tuesday, which is definitely worse than Monday. After a long weekend of Busch Light I decided to pick up a beer I've never seen from Rouge: Santa's Private Reserve Ale. Rouge has been hit and miss with me but at $1.89 for the beer I'm in no position to complain. On a side note, … Continue reading Rouge Santa’s Private Reserve Ale

Homebrew and Other Thoughts

Happy Sunday Funday y'all! Instead of doing a focused post on one beer or one brewery, I'll give you a disjointed rambling about my first brewing experience, a local brewery (Ocean Sun Brewing), and whatever else comes to mind. This weekend I was supposed to run offshore for some mahi fishing, but 7' seas said … Continue reading Homebrew and Other Thoughts
