Tampa Bay brewing success!

A nice article in the Saint Petersburg Times yesterday about local breweries and the success that they are having. You can read it online here. Cigar City Brewery (Tampa’s first and only microbrewery) is really the main focus of the article. Check out this video about them: I picked up a container of beer from CCB [...]

Happy holidays!

Seasons greeting! I hope everyone out there is doing well and drinking lots of good beer. Yes, this blog has been quiet as I have been quite busy with other thing leaving me with zero time to write. I hope to change that soon. Adam

Total Wine added to Ultimate beer guide list

Without much thought, I have decided to add Total Wine & More to my Ultimate Tampa Bay area beer guide. Any place where I can purchase Boulder Beer’s Hazed & Infused (one of my favorite breweries) for only $6.99, certainly deserves to be on the list. Aside from that, they have a very large selection [...]

Winter beers are here!

I was so excited that I had to post this. In fact, I think that I will use this post to keep a running list of what is appearing in stores as well as what I have sampled. Most will be American microbrews but on occasion, I may pick up an English Ale or two. [...]

Land Shark Lager

One of the largest drivers of traffic to my blog, are people looking for the percentage of alcohol in Land Shark Lager. Personally, I have not tried this particular product but I have decided to do some research for you all. Land Shark beer should best be described as a Pale Lager. Typically, the alcohol [...]

Budweiser & Clamato

I was strolling through our local grocery store yesterday when this caught my eye: Budweiser Chelada – the brilliant new marketing idea from the folks over at Anheuser-Busch. That’s right . . . Budweiser beer, tomato juice and clam juice all mixed together in one little can. Need to comment more? The thought of doing [...]

Pizza Beer?

OK we have all heard the expression “don’t knock it ’till you try it”, but beer brewed with ingredients such as tomatoes, garlic, oregano and basil just doesn’t sound that great to me. I also understand that there is a market for everything and sometimes people are just looking for something different. You have to [...]

Lagunitas on tap

This evening, my wife and I were able to enjoy a few hours out away from our 6 month old. We headed to DTSP (Downtown Saint Petersburg) to grab a bite to eat and have a few drinks. I have had the hankering for some fish tacos – the best in town can be found [...]

MLB – Ballpark Brews

“Peanuts, popcorn, Coca-Cola – Budweiser”! Those were the words that I remember the vendors yelling at Al Lang Field in Saint Petersburg. When I was younger, I would often go there to watch the minor league Cardinals baseball team play ball. At the time, I was too young to drink beer. It is probably a [...]

Publix, where buying beer is a pleasure

Thats right, my favorite neighborhood supermarket Publix, is now carrying select American craft microbrews in some of their stores in the Tampa Bay area. Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be providing some detailed reports on the tasty brews that are now populating the shelf of my neighborhood supermarket. Kudos to [...]
