Yes, this really is likely to be the worst beer blog ever (at least I was accurate with the name right?) as it has been embarrassingly long since I last posted. Unfortunately, my job as an on-premise account manager for a beer distributor in the Fort Myers area is very demanding but it pays the bills a little more effectively than blogging. I just wanted to let everyone know I am still around and still very much involved in the beer world.
Speaking of which, Fort Myers will soon find itself on the craft beer map as a lot of great things are happening in the Southwest Florida beer world. Here a just a few examples. Fort Myers Brewing Company , in the Gateway region of Fort Myers, is still going strong with a lineup of tasty brews and a different food truck outside nearly every day! Point Ybel Brewing Company will celebrate their grand opening this Saturday December 14th. I have not yet tried anything from Point Ybel Brewing Company, but I have heard they make some excellent beer. House of Brewz just opened up a few weeks ago in the Gulf Coast Town Center and will soon include Bury Me Brewing alongside 150 taps and excellent food! Fat Point Brewing in Punta Gorda will be in operation soon. Naples Beach Brewery is alive and well and it is an outright tragedy that I have not yet found the time to pay them a visit. Big Storm Brewery in Tampa makes its Fort Myers debut on Friday at World of Beer. Another brewery to look out for in the near future is Old Soul Brewing Company, I know these guys pretty well and they make some excellent beer. I believe that the biggest beer nerds and the novice enthusiast will be surprised by the unique styles Old Soul Brewing Company will roll out with. You will hear of Old Soul Brewing Company soon!
