Jessi Smith with VisitSarasota said it best, “Florida and craft beer are a natural pairing any time of the year: refreshing wheat ales with Sunshine State citrus notes cool down summer days. Inventive IPAs and adventurous sours appeal to the Gulf Coast’s creative culture. Even dark, rich porters and stouts are at home in Florida—where tropical ingredients like cacao, sugar cane and the coffee bean are key local flavors at every craft brewer’s fingertips”

My personal fav is Sarasota’s “Big Top Brewery” which makes Trapeze Monk, a tribute to our city’s circus history and a nice belgium style wit.
