Brewhand Simon Domb helps us with our third installment of the Discovering Beer in Florida series. Simon is the newest member of the team and handles all the packaging needs for Dunedin Brewery. With a real passion for Florida beer, Simon gave us some great choices:
Like Trace, I can't get enough of our American Classic IPA. It totally represents what an American IPA should taste like, comparing equally to anything I've tried from Southern California. For me, it lives up to its name.
7venth Sun's Donut Imperial Porter is a favorite of mine. It's like a delicious, rich desert. Even though it's high gravity, the sweetness is well-balanced with the dark malts, and the alcohol is not overpowering. This beer is always in limited supply and is a real treat when I can get a glass.
My final and more recent favorite Florida beer, thanks to Ricky suggesting I go have a pint, is Barley Mow's Common Eileen California Common. This is a really sessionable beer with a nice balance between hops and malt. It's very easy to drink, yet still has full rich flavor. Be sure to check it out.
