We took a little trip up to St. Augustine earlier this week to check out the relatively new Mile Marker Brewery. Its only been open since October of last year but we really enjoyed our visit. The owners are a couple of cool guys, the atmosphere in the tasting room was very laid back and welcoming, and the beers were tasty!
We ordered up a 6 beer flight that consisted of a Honey Kolsch, Kolsch, Nut Brown Ale, Red Ale,
Coconut Porter, and an India Pale Ale. We found each of the beers to be very drinkable and were most impressed with the Pecan De Leon Nut Brown Ale. Next year is the 500 year Anniversary of De Leon's landing on the east coast of Florida and there will be a lot of fun things happening in St. Augustine to celebrate. Pecan de Leon will be the official beer of the Anniversary celebration!
We were also impressed that the owners really seemed to pride themselves on the fact that they use fresh local ingredients in their beer. Anyone who has passed through St. Augustine knows that honey and pecans are sold at roadside stands there. The brewery uses that local honey in its Kolsch and the local pecans in its nut brown ale. It's the hard to find combination of good beer, good people, and good atmosphere that make Mile Marker Brewing worth checking out next time you are in St. Augustine!
Oblivion Taproom To Celebrate American Craft Beer Week with "Flavors of the Southeast"
By Orlando Beer Guide
There is no other bar and grill in town that is quite like the Oblivion Taproom! You'll know exactly what we're talking about if you've been there. It has become one of Orlando's favorite craft beer bars in only about eight months time. Oblivion has one of the most thoughtful draft beer selections around and food that is just as good as the beer!
"Flavors of the Southeast" is coming to the Oblivion Taproom this Tuesday night May 15th as part of American Craft Beer Week. The event will feature 20 beers on tap that all come from the Southeastern region of the United States. Many of these beers are from Florida including Dunedin's 7th Sun Brewery. The food specials for the evening will be inspired by traditional recipes from the Southern States with a little twist compliments of Chef Goody. It's going to be a great night to enjoy some quality craft beer from our region along with some creatively prepared local food.
