Not too long ago, two Broadway actors and craft beer podcasters created a beer to help fund a program for out of work theatre professionals around the country. That program is The Actors Fund, the show is The Happy Hour Guys, and that beer is Curtain Up–a hazy IPA bursting with citric hop goodness. Three breweries in Florida are slated to release the beer, and the first is Tampa’s Bay Cannon Brewing. We’ll chat with co-founder Matthew Juaire about the reason behind making the beer and giving back to this vibrant arts community.
From there, we head to Naples with a visit to Riptide Brewing. Since our last visit, they’ve had new ownership and a whole new refresh: new logo, new interior, new beer garden, and especially new beers. We sat down with co-owner Kim West in that wonderful beer garden to discuss what it was like taking over an existing brewery, changes they made, and their big plans for the future.
