WELCOME TO THE SUNSHINE STATE!

If there's one thing we Floridians are known for, it's doing things right. From well-managed elections to the careful and competent handling of high-profile criminal cases, we know what we're doing down here! OK, maybe not so much... but there's something Florida is doing right and that's making exceptional craft beer, and the craft beer community in Central Florida is all the better for it.

The “Cask Beer Experience” at Machine House Brewery

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we spend a lot of time raving about unusually hoppy/boozy/heavy/rambunctious beers with funny names. Today, I'm here to laud the extreme beer's modest and easygoing cousin - the session ale - and the brewery that's bringing this beer to Seattle.

Beer for the Greater Good

There's nothing better than playing host for out-of-town friends on a gorgeous 60-degree weekend in January - unless, of course, a much-anticipated local brewery just so happens to be opening that same weekend.

A Sconnie Paradise: ACB at the Isthmus Beer and Cheese Fest

Nothing says Wisconsin like beer and cheese. And nothing says beer and cheese like the aptly-named Isthmus Beer and Cheese Festival that took place in Madison last weekend. Even in below-freezing conditions, determined Sconnies cabbed, bussed, biked, and walked to get to their favorite event of the year. So many, in fact, that the event sold out, resulting in "Will sell soul for 1 ticket" signs outside. Worth it.
