Hey guys! I have great news and I can can hardly contain my excitement about this one. The elegant and fabulous Chasing Glitter gave me the opportunity to write for her blog, and it’s all about craft beer. More importantly, it’s about craft beer in South Florida. Judith, thanks so much for having me. Everybody go check out her e-magazine and show her some love.
If you’re anything like me, you enjoy a fine brewski every once in a while. Beer is so distinct all over the world, and craft breweries are really taking over the market. They’re quickly developing notoriety for being extra delicious, especially in the United States (or maybe we’re finally catching up!).
Great beer is product of an artisan, and Florida is steaming with great flavors.
Craft Beer Spotlight: Coffee District
Coffee District is at the top of the list when it comes to craft beer in Delray Beach, Florida. Finding this gem in the rough was lucky and a reminder that the best things are in our own back yard. This little coffee shop by day turns into one of the finest craft beer watering holes by night. Most people visit Delray Beach to get crazy on The Ave, or hang out at the beach bars by the coast. After living in the area for over a year, I’ve quickly learned that the best locations are actually the ones floating around in alleys and side streets. Some don’t even have signs, which clearly means, “Tourists stay away!” So if you are a tourist, stay tuned for some inside scoops on Delray Beach, because the best way to enjoy any place is to see if from the perspective of a local.
The neat thing about Coffee District is that it doubles as a coffee shop and a bar. The bar tenders are extremely savvy on their craft brew. I’m a big fan of the Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine – it’s a 15%! It’s a nice brown brew with distinct barley flavor and a hint of sour… (Keep in mind, I’m no expert, I just know what I like). Last time I dropped by, it was taken out of their rotation, but the rest of their list is not any less superior. Check it out:
