It's #FloridaBeerFridayEvery 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 our eyes north to the lands of Jacksonville and the surrounding communities with a look at Nut Sack Double Brown Ale by Engine 15 Brewing Company.

This Jacksonville Beach brewery, which recently opened an expanded production brewery in downtown Jacksonville, has been brewing beer in northern Florida for years. Until now, distribution barely made it to South Florida, where there are currently a few offerings available.

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

It takes a massive pair of cahones to make a sour beer in a popular, if not erudite, brewpub most famous for its blonde ale and marzen lager. For Brewzzi, it's another sign that the craft beer movement in South Florida is in full swing and is ready to showcase all styles of beer.

Matt Manthe, the scholarly brewer at the Boca Raton brewpub, has put his skills on full force by introducing the southern Palm Beach County public to a wild beer: one of a trending style replete with bacterial microbes and mouth-puckering acidity.

Those who are unfamiliar with the northern Florida brewing scene might not know of Engine 15 Brewing Company, which operates a brewpub in Jacksonville Beach and a production brewery in Jacksonville proper. That ignorance is about to change, as the brewery's products are now making their way down to our humble home of South Florida.

Cousins? Siblings? Last Stop shares the family traits of Cigar City's Jai Alai.
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 looking at the Last Stop IPA from Brew Bus Brewing, a company that owns and operates a small fleet of touring buses and contract brews with Cigar City Brewing out of Tampa. It's a mix of beer and tourism.

You may remember the Brew Bus from this summer, when we took a ride to see what all the fuss was about. It's a unique feature of this particular tour operator that they source a half dozen of their own branded beer, which not only accompanies each ride but is available at local stores as well.

This week, we're taking a look at a beer with a lot of 'Florida' in the name. It's a darker beer for the soon-to-be-happening changing of seasons (any day now, weather) that incorporates sweetness with sessionability. It is the Florida Sweet Stout from Florida Beer Company in Cape Canaveral.

This week we're looking at the Isle of MaGourdo, the annual pumpkin beer offering from Due South Brewing Company. Since it is getting to be that time of year, it seemed only prudent to begin the laborious process of making it through some fall seasonals.

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.

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.
