Doug Fairall

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.
