Brew at the Zoo: Five Must-Try Beers and Haiku Ticket Giveaway

Categories: Brew at the Zoo

Our sister paper may have just hosted Beerfest, and you may have already gotten your fill of beer for a while.

But where's the fun in that?

Brew at the Zoo is inching closer, and it's about time you realize what you'll miss if you skip this annual extravaganza.

Do you like Florida beer? We love it. And ya can't call yourself a true local without knowing the local brews. Here's a primer on some state-pride must-trys.

Amid the 100-plus beers to sample at Brew at the Zoo, at least five are worth the ticket price alone.

That doesn't even count the creative taps from the likes of our Homebrew Alley participants, which won't be entirely finalized until later (but we're equally ecstatic about what's in store there too).

Florida isn't the first state to pop up in the minds of those who think about quality local breweries. But that's a shame. Because we have plenty of breweries that are not only award-winning but also unsung and fantastic.

For the giveaway: Create a Florida Brew haiku in the comments section of this post. Contest ends at 4 p.m. We'll announce a winner on Facebook and Twitter at 5 p.m. today.

Florida Avenue Blueberry
A simple blueberry ale doesn't sound exciting until you take into account that Florida Avenue built a solid ale to complement the blueberry in it. It's light and refreshing, as well as one of our go-tos when we can't make up our minds.

The Key West brews are our favorite from FBC. If vacation could be bottled and chilled, that's what it would taste like. Thankfully, they left out the hints of sunscreen.
