Cheers to the folks at Disney's Wide World of Sports for putting together a respectable beer selection for this year's Atlanta Braves spring training games! Every game will feature Sweetwater 420 and Tomahawk Ale for Braves fans. Each game will also feature a "visiting" beer from the opposing teams city.
Bell's Oberon, Brooklyn Brewery Pennant Lager, Harpoon IPA, Orlando Brewery I-4 IPA, Victory Golden Monkey, Funky Buddha Floridian, Cigar City Florida Cracker, Budweiser Black Crown, Shiner Bock, will make up this year's lineup of beers.
The prices are really good too (considering its Disney) if you take advantage of the refillable mug program. Your first draft is $8 (Budlight or Miller Lite) or $10 (all crafts or ciders). Hang on to your cup and get refills for either $4 or $5 depending on whether your getting light or craft brew. This is the second year craft brews have been featured at these games. Last year, we were really happy to see that the majority of the people in line were ordering the "good" beers.
The beer trailers make really good meeting spots or landmarks when meeting some friends at the game "meet me at the beer trailers on the 1st and 3rd base sides". There are a total of 96 taps pouring beer at all Braves games this spring!

I can't say that I've ever used the term "Valentine's Day beers" before writing this post. But here are a couple of local ones that will be available on a very limited basis over the next few days. Cheers to locally brewed chocolate beers!
"Hearty" Brown Ale by Cask & Larder
Cask conditioned brown ale aged on cocoa nibs weighs in a 5% ABV. Tapping Wednesday at 4:00 pm. Snifter pours will hopefully allow the keg to last through the weekend!
"Girl Stout" by Orlando Brewing
First brew drafted and crafted by the ladies of Orlando Brewing tastes like a Thin Mint in a glass. One last keg will be a pourin' at the Orlando Brewing tasting room on Valentine's Day!
