- winter in a can -

i recently tried the fireside chat winter spiced ale by 21st amendment brewery. i really enjoyed this winter time ale! it had a mild spiced flavor and at 7.9% abv, it will warm you up on a cold night.

check out our previous posts on hell or high watermelon and brew free or die ipa for other great beers by 21st amendment brewery.

- airstream trailer -

gub and i both hold a special place in our hearts for airstream trailers. we have grand ideas of using one for a guest house or opening a design boutique in one some day. in the meantime though, we mainly just get excited whenever we see one. here is a great airstream i saw recently!

- bridge to nowhere -

check out this old bridge i saw today near marietta street and means street. i am not sure where it used to go, but it abruptly ends at a parking lot. and based on the clothes drying and little hut i saw, i assume people are living on the bridge as well. kind of crazy.

- florida beer company -

on our recent trip to florida we visited the florida beer company tasting room and brewery. here they brew hurricane reef, ybor gold, key west, la tropical and other florida beers.

the brewery was fairly small, offering a fun intimate setting for the visitor. the tasting room was on the second floor of the building, right above the beer brewing. this allowed you to watch the brewers hard at work while sampling their beers. we watched the bottling and capping process while tasting ours. the setup reminded me a lot of the rogue brewery in newport, or.

i tried the key west sunset ale and swamp ape ipa on draft. although i enjoyed the sunset ale, it was the swamp ape ipa that really stood out. this tasty treat was extremely hoppy and a whopping 10%, quite the beast indeed! it was brand new from florida beer and not actually available yet. i was bummed i couldn’t buy any to bring home.

i had a blast sampling fresh brewed local beers while on vacation! if you ever find yourself in melbourne, florida, be sure to stop by the florida beer company.

- southern tier ipa -

i recently tried the ipa by southern tier brewing and loved it! after recommendations from my buddy willy, i was excited to find southern tier beers finally available in georgia. this triple hopped ale is refreshing! it is super hoppy and has a great citrus aroma. on top of that, it packs a punch at 7.4%! for a great new hoppy beer, try out the ipa by southern tier brewing.

be sure to try the crème brûlée imperial milk stout by southern tier brewing as well!
