Key West
« on: August 01, 2012, 01:30:51 PM »
Headed to Key West for a week with friends.  Will likely be hitting the bars on Duval St. most of the time but we will be renting a house and would like to have some good beer there. 

Any recommendations on where to buy decent brew in the area?  We will have a car but filling it with beer on the drive down from Miami isn't likely an option as when we fly in, people aren't going to want to stop and it'll be pretty full with 4 people and luggage at the time too.

I think Cigar City is canning soon. You should beg and plead for a short beer stop.

Kinda figured that'd likely be the case.  I just don't see us having room in the car.  Other problem is that we're gonna be tired as hell at that point.  We have a wedding the night before on Saturday.  Friend is in the wedding.  Then after that we head to the airport and fly out at 5:30am.  Get into Miami and a 2 hour or so drive to Key West. 

Maybe I can find something on the way out of Miami.

Places to drink good beer in Key West are:
The Porch on the corner of Caroline and Duval St. It is a cool spot with a good tap list and you can sit on the porch and people watch.

The other I remember is Joes Tap Room which is a small bar attached to Sloppy Joes. Small bar and decent tap list. I cant remember if either sell beer to go but since you can buy beer in the bar and walk out on the street they might be able to sell beer to go.

You can definetely pick up SN Torpedo at the publix along 1A on your way down.

Awesome.  Looks like we'll be staying fairly close to Duval.  Most likely in Old Town but maybe just a block or two off it.  Have some suggestions for places to drink including Sloppy Joe's but more are always welcome.

Ben,

Have fun in the Keys.  Check out the Porch in Key West as well as Krawl Off Duval.  These are just two of the many places we are distributed in that area.  Our distributor is Brown Specialty down there.

Cheers, and thanks for the support!

Phil
