|A very happy crowd poses at Field of Beers last Friday night.|
Along the way, we met a lot of great people -- passionate beer fans who bleed for Cigar City and Holy Mackerel, and jump at the chance to try Engine 15's Weiss Guy or Green Room's Pablo Pale. We've seen fanatics young and old, from Miami to Loxahatchee; folks who obsess over stouts, IPAs, or everything they can get their hands on.
Most of all, we've met so many people who are excited, enraptured, and engrossed by Florida's ever-growing beer scene. If the giant leap of support and love we've witnessed between the first SFBW and the second is any indication, when SFBW returns in 2014 it will be truly stratospheric.So a big thank you to all of you out there who came out to the events and supported local beer!
