First Magnitude Brewing and the University of Florida make beer into beef

UF/IFAS encourages brewers to combine forces with local ranchers

We’ve got 60 living garbage disposals on campus at the University of Florida. They gobble up at least two tons of trash a week from a local business. You might even call it a form of agricultural alchemy: We turn beer (or at least its byproducts) into beef.

Florida/ Georgia rivalry arrives in liquid form

For all of the football fans of both the University of Florida and the University of Georgia, the rivalry dates back as long as they can remember. Every year, the football game for these two southern states must be played on neutral ground in Jacksonville, half(ish) way between the two colleges. The rivalry is bitter, it divides friends and neighbors, brothers and sisters, and work colleagues alike, if only for one Saturday each year. While many beers are undoubtedly consumed in the wake of the UF/ UGA Football Game, now the rivalry has crossed the lines and united brewers from each city.
