I stopped in at The Waterfront Brewery in Key West, Florida. I tried the Key Lime Witness and really wanted to enjoy it. Clearly it has notes of key lime but I really wanted more. It also has other spices including pepper which added to the complexity of the beer but took away from my enjoyment of it. Not every beer is for every palate. I did enjoy the Crazy Lady Honey Blonde which was a very enjoyable blonde ale with sweetness of local honey. I also really enjoyed the Waterfront Brewery setting along the harbor walk in Key West. Great stop!
I stopped in at Kelly’s Caribbean Bar Grill and Brewery in Key West, Florida. Kelly’s has the distinction of being the southernmost brewery in the continental United States. Since it was happy hour I enjoyed $2 pours of their three flagship beers, Southern Clipper wheat, Havana Red, and Key West Golden ale. Of the three I enjoyed the Havana Red the most. If you’re in Key West and walking around Duval Street, Kelly’s is only a block away on Whitehead and worth a stop. It is also located in the original Pan Am Airlines headquarters building, which is historically cool as well.
