Bromance and Beers in BroCo

Cigar City Brewing was founded in Tampa by a bunch of guys who love beer. Laser Wolf bar was founded in Fort Lauderdale by a bunch of guys who love beer. Cigar City Brewing was founded with two goals in mind: "First to make the world's best beer and the second to share with people near and far the fascinating culture and heritage of the Cigar City of Tampa." Laser Wolf was founded by "three native Floridians who love Fort Lauderdale and want to make it the best city it can be." The fact that it has taken this long for these two bunches of guys to get together is really kind of surprising. The wait is over, however, and the bromance can finally begin. Cigar City Brewing will be bringing its entire draft lineup to Laser Wolf (901 Progresso Drive, Ste. 101, Fort Lauderdale) on Tuesday. Beginning at 5 p.m. Try Jai Alai IPA. Taste Vanilla Maduro. Get paranoid with the Hills Have Coffee. Celebrate the abolition of slavery with Florida Cracker White Ale -- or something. "Each one is the best beer you'll ever have," or so say the bosom bros of Laser Wolf and Cigar City. As usual, 21 and over only, and no jerks.

She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life."
