Brew Review – Trail Junk and Horse Wheelie by Right Around The Corner

There’s just a special place in my heart for Right Around The Corner.

It is most definitely not the standard brewery vibe, and I think that makes it brilliant. If you listened to Episode 99 of the Florida Beer Podcast, as wacky as that episode was, you’ll know. But in the meantime, it’s always good to talk about their beers.

Brew Review – Huck If Ya Buck by Funky Buddha Brewery

It has been a long time since I’ve actually gone to the Funky Buddha Brewery brewery.

Actually, my wife and I were reminiscing about hanging out there years ago, finding a pint glass with the name of the brewery on it and dropping in for a tour (with Adrian!) one lazy weekend afternoon.

In that time they have grown. My, how they have grown.

Brew Review – Creamsicle by Prosperity Brewhouse

Yes, craft beer in a shopping mall.

Prosperity Brewhouse in Boca has been in its almost stereotypically traditional ‘production facility and tap room in an industrial park’ location for several years now.

Brew Review – Bosh Blonde by Dogfish Head Miami

I did not anticipate Chris Bosh being a homebrewer.

If you lived in South Florida a couple years ago, you were almost inundated with the big three coming from the Miami Heat. You had the leader Dwyane Wade, the flashy showman LeBron James, and the solid workhorse Chris Bosh.

D-Wade has since retired, LeBron has taken his talents away from South Beach (which is an entirely different municipality, but I won’t get it to that) and Chris Bosh was permanently sidelined with an unfortunate blood-clotting condition.

Brew Review – Watermelon Wheat Ale by 3 Daughters Brewing

Watermelon flavored anything goes one of two ways: It’s faint and light and refreshing, or it’s really syrupy sweet.

I guess it’s kind of like real watermelon that way. Only with real watermelon, it seems to be the other way around. You want a watermelon that’s dark and sweet and incredibly flavorful, but that heavy-handed flavor doesn’t bode well in beer.
