7venth Sun Brewing Company

Just outside of Tampa in Dunedin, Florida, comes 7venth Sun Brewing, makers of Belgian-style beer, IPAs, spirit barrel-aged brews, and oak-aged sour beers. Owners Devon Kreps and Justin Stange aren't your ordinary beer lovers. Kreps graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in Fermentation Science, and later brewed at Anheuser-Busch, leaving to become production manager at Sweetwater Brewing in Atlanta, while Stange brewed at Sweetwater and Cigar City in Tampa. Together, 7venth Sun, founded in January 2012, is their home away from home, where they produce specialty brews including a few they brought along to the festival: the Mangrove DIPA, a Florida-style double IPA; Grievance American porter brewed with cacao nibs and vanilla bean; and Graffiti Orange, a "creamsicle" wheat ale.

Green Room Brewing

If you're ever in Jacksonville Beach and in the mood for a good beer with an even better view, you owe it to yourself to visit Green Room Brewing, the area's first mircrobrewery. Founded in June 2011, the beach-side brewery located directly off A1A offers 16 beers on tap at all times, including its standard selection of seven year-round brews and as many as nine seasonal creations offered throughout the year. Each beer has been given a surf-centric name and uses Florida-grown ingredients to make them Sunshine State brews. Co-owner and brewer Eric Luman was on-hand Saturday to pour a taste of the brewery's Count Shakula chocolate oatmeal stout and Double Overhead IPA. Visit the Green Room Brewing website and Facebook page.
