On Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach, the restaurants do a good job of rotating beers. After all, South Florida craft beer lovers enjoy variety, right?
Better restaurants typically have a number of standard draft and bottle selections, but many rotate two or three drafts and add to their bottle offerings of craft beer.
Places like Alchemist, Hullabaloo http://sub-culture.org/hullabaloo/and Grease http://www.greasewpb.com/ have great selection and variety. And good food.
So, the next time you are out in West Palm Beach, consider looking for a porter, which, admittedly, you don’t see on tap that often. The draft selections seem to be skewed towards ales, often IPA’s.
Bell’s Brewery https://www.bellsbeer.com/is a great craft beer company that has a wonderful reputation. And a good presence in South Florida. I see Bell’s in Whole Foods and many good restaurants. The West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault http://www.WestPalmBeer.com samples beers repeatedly and often next to our own craft beer made in the beer lab. We often blind taste and sample and compare different craft beers. We are always trying to gauge what’s new, what’s good, and what craft beer drinkers are enjoying, or may want to enjoy. Look for Bell’s next time you are out. You’ll be glad that you did.
