Brewer’s Notes:
This Tampa-style Lager is inspired by the traditional German-style Helles, which translates to “light colored.” Perfect for the Florida heat, it’s a beer that’s made for drinkin’ when it’s truly hotter than helles outside.

Just tapped: Duck Rabbit Milk Stout – The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery 5.7% ABV. BA 86duck-rabbit-milk-stout
The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout is a traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). Because lactose is unfermentable by brewer’s yeast, it remains in the beer. The subtle sweetness and fullness of flavor imparted by this sugar balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains that give this delicious beer its black color. All year long, Milk Stout is our number one selling beer! ABV: 5.7%

Just tapped: Jose Martí American Porter – Cigar City Brewing 8% ABVjose marti

Brewer’s Notes:
This is a heavily hopped high gravity porter featuring the hopping levels of an India Pale Ale with the rich and roasty malt profile of a robust porter. Heavy hop rates, while uncommon in today’s porters were not unknown historically and recipes from the British porter producers of the 1800’s evidence hopping rates far in excess of what is common for the style today.

Brewer’s Notes:
Is there anything more iconic of the lush tropics than the coconut? The delicious heart of this island treasure has a nutty, toffee flavor and aroma that sends you straight to the beaches of Paradise. Kick back with a Koko Brown, brewed with real toasted coconut, and savor the mahogany color and smooth, roasty malt taste.

Just tapped: Highway 128 Session Series: Blood Orange Gose – Anderson Valley Brewing Anderson-Valley-Blood-Orange-Gose-Bottles1-960x960Company 4.2% ABV

Brewer’s Notes:
Our Blood Orange Gose is a tart, refreshing wheat ale that is kettle-soured with lactobacillus and brewed with sea salt and coriander. However, unlike traditional versions of the style, ours features liberal additions of blood oranges during fermentation. This imparts tangy citrus notes that complement the champagne-like flavors, creating a complex and sessionable ale perfect for any occasion.
