3 Daughters in St. Pete is quite the hopping place on a Friday night. Their new stage looks really nice, there were a lot of people and families all over the place, tons of games, and I finally got to meet co-owner Leigh Harting.
I just felt bad for her, since she was running around putting out tons of fires (Busy Friday night, remember?). Since I was there with my wife and daughter, Leigh gave us a nice rundown of some of the particularly awesome things that are coming down the pipeline for them.
As nice as it looks, the picture I took for 4 Redemption (Quadrupel, 11% ABV, 22 IBU) by 3 Daughters Brewing is incredibly date specific, which means I have to get this piece out relatively soon.
I’ve been a big fan of St. Petersburg brewing behemoth 3 Daughters Brewing for some time, but I’ve only been able to set foot in their brewery twice. The first time was with my wife while she was pregnant, and the second was only a few weeks ago. The sad thing was I wasn’t able to bring my wife and daughter. I will need to get them back sometime soon.
When i was there, however, co-owner Mike Harting gave me a little tour of their new brewing facility and the giant fermentation tanks there, manufactured by BrewFab only blocks away. It was pretty awesome to see, and they have definitely come a long way in a short time.
This is apparently a great weekend for Tampa Bay Craft beer, as two big events are happening on Saturday!
Here’s your Florida Craft Beer News for 4-15-16. There’s a lot, so sit back and relax…
Ah, the joys of a good Belgian.
Beer, a Belgian beer. It’s the mix of big malt flavors and funky yeast esters that are always such a big draw.
And what I find interesting is very few people tend to do anything with their Belgian beers, unlike, say, a porter. Every so often, however, you do get something like 3 Daughters Brewing recent Tampa Bay Beer Week release, Treble Monker (Tripel, 8.5% ABV).

Here’s some interesting news on breweries and festivals from around the state:
Many moons ago, when my lovely wife was still pregnant, we had a wonderful visit to the good people at 3 Daughters Brewing in St. Pete.
While there, one of the beers that co-owner Mike Harting had me sample was a Strawberry Cream Ale, one of their first forays into fruit beers. I was suitably impressed (Head brewer Ty Weaving is quite the master), and the beer is pretty fitting for the Tampa Bay area with their close proximity to Plant City’s legendary strawberries and their currently on-going Florida Strawberry Festival.
While it was delicious, it didn’t seem like the beer was destined to ever leave the tap room.
Boy, was I wrong. The beer was just released in bombers and given a new, royal title of Queen’s Court Strawberry Cream Ale (Cream Ale, 5% ABV).
