  • #1 Florida Craft Brewery.  What makes a great craft brewery in Florida?  Or, should I say, what makes the #1 Florida craft brewery? Well, that probably is defined in as many ways as there are varieties of craft beers, right?  But most beer geeks, critics, craft beer aficionados would probably talk to you about the essential 5 characteristics which make a great craft brewery experience: 1) taste 2) variety 3) atmosphere 4) food and 5) alternatives (what is often referred to as the “X” factor).   Here are 5 great tasting craft beers that went on tap in October of 2018 at the West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault which help to make this 1st downtown craft brewery the #1 Florida craft brewery.  They are unique, delicious, + represent the true essence of the beer type which they are.  Each limited release craft beer gets an “A” for being innovative, while still respecting the integrity of the beer. (For, as the owner of the West Palm Beach Brewery repeats, often, “Beer should taste like….well…. beer.  Not some ice cream section or candy aisle in a supermarket.” 
  • Imperial Autumn Brown.   Recognition from your peers is important !    And now the West Palm Beach Brewery is getting national awards !  Try this brown ale from chief brewer Joel Kodner who just won national acclaim and a bronze medal   for his “Unfashionable Brown Ale” at the 2018 US Open Beer Competition.  This Imperial Brown Ale weighs in at 8.0% ABV and you will find it very malty, a full bodied brown ale but very smooth.

  • From Mexico to WPB   For coffee lovers, try this porter infused with select Mexican coffee beans selected from a limited roasting from Jupiter, Florida’s Ocean Coffee Roasters. https://oceanacoffee.com/ With notes of coffee and dark chocolate, this coffee porter taps our at 6.2% ABV.  If you like this, try a side by side or beer flight with the Palm Beach Porter. 

  • Blanc Stare     If you like a Saison, belly up to The Long Bar at the West Palm Brewery for this Brut Saison at 7.3% ABV.  It offers a Champagne-like crispness, it is dry and lightly dry-hopped with Hallertau Blanc, imparting notes of white grape and tropical fruits. Pair it with a fresh arugula salad or the fire roasted cauliflower made at the brewery’s restaurant, The Intracoastal Kitchen

  • Nerds in Paradise   OK; this is a big one.   Or, a flavorfull one !   Just like “Shell Game”, which is a peanut beer, this Nerds in Pardise has the craft beer consumer recognizing the influence that one doesn’t normally see in a beer, even a craft beer.  This coconut imperial stout falls from the coconut palm tree at 8.3% ABV.   Consider this as your dessert beer after you have dinner at the brewery because this craft brewery does not “do” food trucks but actually has a restaurant inside their tap roomhttps://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-food/

  • Black & Brut .  While the B4 Blonde Ale is the most popular at the West Palm Brewery, fans absolutely love their fruit influenced beers. Patrons ask repeatedly for their B4 Razz made with fresh, locally sourced raspberries as well as their strawberry ale.  Now, you can experience blackberry in this Brut Saison at 7.3% ABV.  Consider a side by side wine + craft beer pairing with the 2017 Drum Canyon Cellars Sauvignon Blanc from the Santa Ynez Valley or the 2016 Drum Canyon Cellars Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay.  Yes, this brewery also has an amazing wine bar, called The Vault, which features 90+ points, limited production premium and ultra-premium wine that is only available at 332 Evernia Street. https://www.westpalmbeer.com/our-wines/
