For the longest time Florida was thought to not be able to make a decent beer due to our lack of good water. Now, we have 21 different breweries that have won medals at Great American Beer Fest, 12 of them being gold from 9 different breweries! Also, Florida’s brewery scene is expanding at an astounding rate and currently there are now over 120 breweries throughout the state. And I am proud to say that I am a part of this amazing, flourishing industry.
I began my journey as a beer blogger at one of Florida’s most exciting up and coming breweries, Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park. Although the brewery itself is only a year old, actually their 1st Anniversary party is May 31st, they have already made quite a name for themselves.
