Interested in becoming the next big brewer in South Florida?
Or, do you just want to learn more about the industry and how it works?
Broward County beer fans make note for tonight, as Bobby Gordash of the Florida Beer Company will be making an appearance at the Coral Springs Whole Foods Market at 7pm to share some professional insight into Florida's brewing industry.
For $10, event-goers will be able to sample from the Florida Beer Company portfolio, which includes Sunshine State Pils, Swamp Ape Double IPA, Florida Lager, and Key West Amber ale amongst others. In addition, bites from the store's pub menu will be available, ranging from the standard BLT and crispy spicy honey garlic wings, to the more interesting naan sandwich with eggplant.
Finally, as you depart into the good night, take home a custom six-pack of beers from Florida created by the in-house beer team.
Bobby Gordash used to operate the Holy Mackerel line of beers before moving on to the Florida Beer Company last year. He made a name for himself with a winning brew at the Samuel Adams Longshot competition in 1996 with an ESB (an 'extra special bitter', or English pale ale) before moving on to found the Holy Mackerel line. In other words, he's been in the craft game for a long time, especially for a Florida brewer.
It should be an informative evening.
