Last time my blog had heard from me was March or April other then posting some email and newsletters from breweries. I became reemployed by my previous employer on the second week of March and took a planned vacation to warm weather in FL One week after that. I enjoyed visits to World of Beer in Coconut Creek which is a chain brew place with thirty or so revolving taps with great wait staff as you can see from the pictures. I wanted to visit as many breweries as I could but they all seemed so far away from where I was staying. So I settled for local places that had good taps and I got local brews at the beer stores. Some of the other places where Sharkeys Pub and Lion & Eagle English pub. These are some of the brews I enjoyed on tap or from bottle while in Florida.
