Crazy Uncle Mike’s in Boca Raton is, for lack of a better term, a lot. The space has been around since the seventies, I believe, with a rotating list of restaurants that had the same theme, same menu, and ultimately shared the same fate. It wasn’t until Mike Goodwin (Yes, there is a ‘Mike’), decided …

I may have said this more than once over the past couple of weeks, but I’ve been on a big Kolsch kick recently. I hadn’t really seen the style all that much, especially when I was starting off beer blogging. If you wanted something light and crisp, you either went for a Pilsner and had …

I have said it to many people already, but Palm City Brewing in Fort Myers is, to me, the high-water mark when it comes to family-friendly breweries. That is something that is incredibly important to me, as my wife and I want to be able to go someplace and not have to figure out with …

I have been on a Kolsch kick lately. I can’t totally explain why, but for some reason a nice, clean golden ale seems immensely appealing these days. The kolsch is something THAT fits that bill absolutely perfectly. As a style, it is perfectly crisp and clean and instantly appealing, as it will go with pretty …

The first time I saw beers from Florida Avenue Brewing, I was on vacation in the Sarasota area with my wife. This was a long time ago, so it was the glass bottles with the really awesome old-timey pirate ship logo they used to have. I really like the new iconography of a completely refreshed …
