The elements are slowly but surely falling into place for Alan Newman and his team at the soon-to-launch Concrete Beach Brewery in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami.

Last we saw Newman, the brewery was in the middle of construction. Though there are now more walls and doors than there were a month ago, there is still some time left until completion. With that opening timeline moving closer, and accounts soon waiting to be filled, Concrete Beach Brewery opened its doors to showcase a duo of beers that it will first put out into the market.

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 taking a look at a beer straight outta Tampa that's a collaboration between Rock Brothers Brewing, Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident, and Cigar City Brewing.

Now, is it a collaboration when the beers are brewed on the same premises? Sure it is! It's a meeting of the minds where two separate trains of brewing thought collide to come up with something more than the sum of its parts.

Whole Foods will now have its own in-house beer.
Whole Foods Market hired Dave Ohmer to make beer for the grocer as it prepares to open a brewpub inside one of its newest stores.

The store, which will be located inside the BLVD Place building in Houston, opens November 6 and will contain a 40-seat brewpub with 20 beer taps and brewing tanks visible to customers from behind glass walls, reports the Houston Chronicle. The brewpub will operate separately from the grocery store under the name Whole Foods Market Brewing Company.

Skip the ice. Tap a keg for ALS.
Have you taken the ALS challenge? Yeah, the one where you either pour a bucket of ice water on your head or write a check. And, although dumpling ice on your head might be silly, the results are incredible.

According to the ALS Association, as of September 12, ice bucket challenges around the world have raised $112.4 million. So, while we applaud these amazing fundraising efforts, we'd much rather do something more fun..like drink beer for the cause.

Florida Beer: Stump Knocker Pale Ale From Swamp Head Brewing

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.

Swamp Head Brewing is probably one of my most sought after out-of-reach Florida brewer, in the fact that very few kegs make their way down into our neck of the woods from their home base in Central Florida. Luckily, the beer gods are looking down and raising a divine thumb's up.

The Gainesville brewery just weeks ago entered the canned beer estate by placing their popular and widespread Stump Knocker American Pale Ale into 12 ounce aluminum cans for distribution. They've been slowly making their way down the panhandle, and are now locally available at select retailers.

Mack House brewer Justin Miles (L) and 3 Sons' Corey Artanis.

This week we're looking into the increasingly popular realm of collaboration beers, specifically those between well-known and talented home brewers and an established commercial brewery.

In August, local Davie homebrewer Corey Artanis joined up with the Mack House to produce a star fruit and pink peppercorn saison, among other brews. The aspiring brewer has made a name for himself through local homebrew competitions, festival exhibitions including this years' Hunahpu's Day, and just being an all around nice guy giving away gallons of his culinary creations.
