Florida’s Best Local Craft Breweries

Say cheers to Florida’s Best Local Craft Breweries

By Evan S. Benn

In case you haven’t noticed, craft beer is on many savvy cruisers’ radar. From onboard specialty brews to the first brewery at sea to beer-themed cruises, several cruise lines are noticing the trend and bringing more beer on board.
