Recorded live at craft beer bastion John’s Tavern in Winfield, the day before St. Patrick’s day, and released the day after, we’ve not only avoided the day of green, but we also avoid any green beers as we focus on the Irish Stout and the Irish Red styles. Sláinte!
But wait…there’s more! Mark has returned from another trip to Florida and this time brings offerings from a couple of breweries. Bonus beer #1 is from Coppertail Brewing Co., based in Tampa, FL. and is a double IPA called Notorious H.O.P. So new, it’s not even on their website!
Bonus beer #2, is from Due South Brewing in Boynton Beach. We reviewed a brew from them in pubcast 177, and this time we have a can of their Dry Hopped Series Pale Ale.

Don’t worry – we did it for you! Mark Naski and Phil Clark report from one of the first alefests of the year, on a day when winter took a holiday!
