Hops production spikes in 2016 sets record high

Hops production spikes in 2016 sets record high

While it may not seem like the commercial farming industry would have a lot of connection to new craft breweries and areas like West Palm Beach, Florida, that is certainly not the case here.  When we heard that hops production had hit a record high, we were ecstatic! What’s all the fuss? With our 2017 opening looming closer, it’s always great news to hear that one of the key elements of our production is making top news in the market.  We use hops.  Hops hit a high in production.  This is GREAT news for craft breweries all over, because we […]

An overview of events that can boost tap room traffic

An overview of events that can boost tap room traffic

While we all know that the usual food trucks and such will certainly help to boost tap room traffic, we often forget about how we can tie ourselves to the communities we serve in other ways.  In south Florida, there is a wide range of yearly events held by each community, some receiving national recognition such as the Big Cat Races Series coming up in January 2017. How can participating in events help my brand? Events like this are not only great for boosting sales because we certainly all want to do that, but they’re also good for getting your brand […]

What once started as a few guys making beer in their home to entertain their family and friends has grown into one of the fastest growing markets in the brewing industry.  Much like moonshiners became the leaders of the hard liquor industry, our beloved neighbor with his little brewing set up keyed off a chain reaction, and we’re loving it! According to The Brewers Association, small craft breweries have seen a 12% rise over the past decade.  While that number may sound small, it’s certainly not!  With over 150 old and new craft breweries in Florida alone and more opening every […]

How are Lagers and Ales Different?

How are Lagers and Ales Different?

For those who are new to the craft brew community, a common question is often raised.  How are lagers and ales different?  What makes each one unique? Hot Heads of the Crowd The answer to this is found in the brewing process itself.  You could say, one gets a “rise” faster.  That is to say, they use different types of yeast!  Ale yeast creates a foam that rises to the top and looks a lot like lemon meringue.  This is due to the higher heat used in the fermentation tanks, as the bubbling of the yeast is a bit more […]
