The Floridian sun has a magical effect on beer, making lagers lighter and ales brighter. Several Florida breweries have caught on to this delight, and their locations are prime for tourists to take advantage of the the sea breeze and a fresh beer. These three breweries are a few that offer delicious craft beer at great beach locations.
