This is a subject I hold dear to my heart as I love supporting the local scene here which has taken off the last few years. Breweries like Wynwood, Funky Buddha, Cigar City, Due South just to name a few are great places with a Smörgåsbord of different styles and taste. I also venture off and make my own and I love Founders.
Unfortunately it's trying to be taken away from Florida as politicians, specifically Ray Rodrigues, are trying to pass laws that don't allow the breweries who MAKE THEIR OWN BEER to be able to serve it fresh. They would have to sell it to one of the big 3 distributors, who then would sell it back to the breweries, and then be allowed to serve it. Pretty much closing tap rooms. The guys entire campaign for re-election is being funded by the big 3...go figure. I've been a strong activist in trying to get this taken off the floor for voting in November but there's only so much I can do. I apologize for the rant but I haven't been this upset over political strength since the way the Miami Marlins stadium got funded. Here are some pics.
My home brew amber ale and the rare Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout).
I would be willing to trade a KBS for a 3Floyds Zombie Dust of someone could help a brother out :)
