Some more information about the new Dead Lizard Brewing that plans to open in Orlando in early 2014. We received the following the other day from one of the brewery's owners Richard "Hops" Dine....
"With any luck we will be serving delicious hand crafted beers to Orlando pallets by the first part of 2014. As for the kind of beers we will craft… my nickname is “Hops,” I suppose you can figure out how I got that. So there will be a few styles for the hopheads including what I call “Humulus Lupulus IPA”, an in your face West Coast, Imperial IPA, wow is it a hoppy delight.
That does not mean I don’t like a selection outside the “Hop-Zone,” and I understand that not all craft beer connoisseurs are hopheads, so we will offer a variety pallet pleasing styles. There will be a “Gila-Monster Stout”. This is the real deal, need night vision goggles, black hole of a stout, piled high with coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal with a hint of vanilla.
Mmmm beer; hang on, I gotta go grab a beer… Ok since it’s a sunny, muggy, Orlando afternoon I just poured off a taste of the test batches of “Summerlin Cream Ale” a new take on Cream Ale. This beer is like nothing you have had before. Light in body with just enough hops to be a pale ale but with an out of this world mouth feel! Since it is lower in alcohol it makes for
a great session-able beer perfect for a blistering hot Orlando day! In addition there are others working their way through the testing cycles. Whew… it’s a tough job coming up with and testing all these beers.
Dead Lizard will have enough capacity to serve the Orlando crowds and enough
versatility to respond to what the local craft beer drinkers demand. More to come…"
