Just added a cool brewery called “J. Wakefield Brewery”, hailing from Miami, Florida. Reading up about it, it seems John got started with beer homebrewing in 2005 and once he got hooked he put his accounting and culinary skills to use and hit the ground running.
Glad he did, this place looks off the chain. They have a variety of beers ranging from berliner weisse to russian imperial stouts. And, they’ll be up in Brooklyn this weekend on Saturday, November 14th at Torst, so look to hit that place up and try some of their beers.

While looking for some background information on the next batch of homebrew, watched this great clip by West Coaster on YouTube where he gets to tour while a batch of Sculpin IPA is being made. A great 5 minute glimpse into the process of this great beer, check it out!
Wowzers, tomorrow is The Village Voice’s 5th annual “Brooklyn Pour” craft beer tasting event! There will be over 100 brews to try and the event is hosted at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, Brooklyn from 3PM to 6PM.
Hailing from Rock Island, Illinois, Radicle Effect Brewerks is the first nano-brewery in the quad cities area. Serving up a bunch of great craft beers from other beer shops, and also coming up with their own interesting brews in small batches. One example, their “Limoncillo Rubia” is a blonde ale with lemongrass and pepper.
On a roll here with Pennsylvania craft beer breweries. Just added Chatty Monks Brewing from Reading, PA to the map. I like the names of their beers, take “chocolate maids a milkin'” stout for example. Check em out!
The craft beer scene is finally starting to pick up in Berlin, Germany! Just added a nano-brewery called Vagabund Brauerei to the site, and a handful of their beers. Check em out and be sure to swing by if you happen to be in their area!
American craft beer styles are influencing breweries all over the world. One example, recently posted a beer we were trying called Antisociale Black IPA. Just also added the brewery (brasserie) that makes it to the site. Sainte Crucienne Brasserie (Sainte Cru for short) is one of many unique craft brewers sprouting up in France.
