Belly Up to Florida Breweries

Belly Up


Say cheers to Florida’s 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.

Fort Lauderdale has developed beyond its “Fort Liquordale” reputation as a Spring Break destination into a city with craft beer options that cater to grown-ups. Besides breweries, Fort Lauderdale is home to the excellent Riverside Market, with a location near Port Everglades, which boasts more than 200 beers in bottle and on draft.
