The Best Florida Beers & a Craft Beer Geek's Holiday Wish List: Sybarite Pig's Daniel Naumko Shares His Picks
5. BrewDog: Getting your hands on a brew from this punk rock UK-based brewer is no easy task, but BrewDog has made huge waves in the industry, with its Hardcore IPA snagging Gold Medal at the 2010 World Beer Cup.
4. Jolly Pumpkin: Based in
Traverse City Dexter, Michigan, Jolly Pumpkin and its farmhouse ales have been rising through the craft beer ranks. Available in intermittent supply at some South Florida Total Wine stores. Translation: If you happen to come across a bottle of theirs in your local store, snatch it up, cause you may not get that lucky again.
3. Russian River Brewing Company: This California brewer is available in Philly, and sadly, that's about the closest to South Florida you're going to get. That said, if you're heading west for the holidays, put this on your list to pick up for your Cali hosts.
2. New Glarus Brewing Co.: Heading to the Midwest this month? Keep an eye out for this Wisconsin-born brewing company's offerings.
1. Cantillion Brewery: Another hard-to-find treasure, this Belgium brewer is available in very limited supply in the U.S. Which means, if you do happen to come across it, grab some for yourself and that special beer lover in your life.
