Beer, Glorious Beer!
As we encompass ourselves in the quickly evolving craft beer scene here in South Florida, places like Beer Trade Co. in Delray Beach are essential in providing beer geeks with the latest special-release brews. Barrel-aged, oak-aged, foudre-aged, dry-hopped, wet-hopped, you name it. All of these latest cutting-edge brewing techniques have created distinct beers that have taken the craft beer world by storm – and all can be found in the coolers and kegs at Beer Trade.
The serve-yourself craft beer bar opened about two years ago, and recently opened their second location in Boca Raton. The owners Gene and Chris wanted to recreate a laid-back, locals-hangout atmosphere they’d discovered while visiting similar establishments while traveling through beer towns on the east coast. Today, the duo’s casual beer bar and restaurant is known for its extensive selection of craft beers by the bottle, all served to guests via an honor system. Fort Lauderdale craft beer lovers should be familiar with a similar business model used at Riverside Market. Patrons can help themselves to any of the more than 300 bottled beers in glass-front cases, a selection that changes day-to-day with as many as 30 to 45 new brews arriving each week.
The American craft beer movement is in full swing here in South Florida with the help of homebrews, brewpubs, and taprooms, South Florida has been able to develop its own collection of local breweries worth talking about. There are currently 22 breweries spanning from Palm Beach to Homestead, Miami – all of whom are showcasing their own craft and artisanal way of brewing using floral and tropical-flavored hops to create their easy-drinking signature Florida brews.
We are very excited to announce Beer Trade Co. as a partner and stop on Craft Food Tours! What kind of beer will you be having?
