The month of May is always big around here. So many great people showed up to celebrate our 2 year anniversary with us. The brewers worked overtime to brew over 30 beers which really stretched the limits of what beer can be … from Peanut Butter Apple Ale to Kevin’s Bacon Ale; they were fun to create and even more fun to drink. Thanks to everyone who came!
Our bottle release for the Bourbon Barrel Aged Mariana Trench also went very well. We aged our gold medal winning imperial stout in bourbon barrels to develop this big, complex beer. The line was long before we opened. Despite the two bottle limit per person, bottles sold out in an hour. It’s so nice to see craft beer community continue to grow in South Florida.
So far, these are the June events Due South Brewing Co. has planned at the brewery and at cool places around South Florida.
