It's #FloridaBeerFriday. Every Friday, we take a look at a beer brewed in the Sunshine State, giving analysis to the burgeoning craft-beer movement of Florida.

This week, we look at a self-described beer "curiosity" in the form of Due South Brewing Co.'s inaugural entry in its Curiosity Series, a range of beers that aims to push the Boynton Beach brewery's brewing envelope.

"For our first release in the Curiosity Series," the company stated, "we started with our Imperial Caramel Cream Ale and incorporated the flavors and aromas of Florida oranges and maple syrup for a unique flavor profile we've never tasted anywhere before."

Colombian Craft Brewery Offers Pink Beer to Appeal to the Ladies

Think pink...beer.
Beer, traditionally, is marketed with a heavy slant toward men. Commercials and ads are generally filled with images of guys knocking back a few with friends during the game or after a long day of hearty man's work. Women usually are in the background, serving as eye candy in the spots more than the primary consumer.

Brewers are missing a big opportunity by not targeting the female population in their campaigns. A 2013 Nielsen report, "estimates that women will control two-thirds of the consumer wealth in the U.S. over the next decade and be the beneficiaries of the largest transference of wealth in our country's history".

So how does a brewery tap (pun intended) into the extremely lucrative female market? By making pink beer, of course. Or not.

This week we're going to take a look at the Extra Ordinary Bitter from Oakland Park's Funky Buddha Brewery.

The English bitter is a beer style that hits close to this beer reviewer's heart: for a while, every Friday, I'd hang out all afternoon and evening at the Blue Anchor in Delray with coworkers pounding British beers by the Imperial pint.

It's #FloridaBeerFriday. Every Friday, we take a look at a beer brewed in the Sunshine State, giving analysis to the burgeoning craft beer movement of Florida.

This week, we're going to be sampling from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company's Beer Camp box, which features a collaboration brew from Florida's Cigar City Brewing Company called Yonder Bock, a tropical maibock.

Beer Camp Across America was an ambitious project from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, in which they sought to use their power as the second largest brewer in the country to help spread the love of smaller, more regionalized breweries to the masses. What came out was a twelve-pack that served as a veritable introductory course to American craft beer.

Tequesta Brewing Co. is upgrading to newer digs on the corner of PGA Boulevard and Ellison in Palm Beach Gardens.
Tequesta Brewing Co, a small production brewery that grew from a modest brewpub at the Corner Cafe and Brewery and then into its own microbrewery next door, has begun construction on an additional brewery at the corner of PGA Boulevard and Ellison Wilson in Palm Beach Gardens.

Co-owner and brewer Matt Webster posted a picture to his Facebook page showing the beginning stages of construction on the new digs. The 5,700-square-foot space with 15 3/4-foot ceilings on the corner of PGA Boulevard and Ellison Wilson Road is bigger than the 3,200-square-foot building with only 11-foot ceilings at their original location.
