Meads, Hispanic Influences, and a New Brewery in a Historic Town
Here’s a big episode for everyone! A lot is going on in Florida Craft, so we are back with an extra-awesome episode of the Florida Beer Podcast!
We start in Miami at Beat Culture Brewing not talking about beer at all! The Beat Culture team has been blowing up the Magic City with, of all things, mead! We spoke to co-owner Alan Espinosa about their history making meads, the styles they love to make, and some of the interesting legal differences between mead and beer in the Sunshine State.
Next, we go north to Black Flamingo Brewing. Owner/brewer Manny Jannes has been on the South Florida beer scene for years, bringing his family culture and South Florida’s Hispanic influences to his beers. We sat down to understand those cultural influences, and how South Florida is uniquely suited to bring a new insight and a much-needed change to a very homogenous industry.
Finally, we end in the Grand Central district of St. Petersburg, FL. and Grand Central Brewhouse, the newest brewery to open in this fast-growing hub of Florida beer. We are getting the full lowdown from Founder and CEO Kevin Milkey as to the history of the location, the decision to open in St. Pete, and the growing influence of the district.
