Black Friday is rolling around once again, and 2020 is no different. For many beer enthusiasts, Black Friday is the day to forget that Anheuser-Busch InBev owns Goose Island Brewing as they release a few bottles of barrel-aged stout that draw attention away from Goose Island’s strategy the rest of the year – namely releasing forgettable beers on repeated BOGOs and working to take cooler and shelf space away from independent craft breweries.
Tallahassee’s craft beer scene continues to grow, despite COVID-19 and the challenges of doing business during the current quarantine. The brewery continues to work with the current parameters on takeout service and has been making hand sanitizer as well. The brewery announced that Tuesday they shipped 2,500 gallons of hand sanitizer to the State of Florida.
Tallahassee’s Ology Brewing originally announced the release of two different canned beers coming this week – however, due to some logistics mixups, Berry Lactose Berliner only will be dropping on Thursday, September 12th.
From Ology Brewing:
Florida beer has grown by leaps and bounds for several years now, with the state’s haymaker breweries making names for themselves in the last ten years. While ten years of monumental growth in craft beer has been a boon to the state and its beer scene, new breweries are working to make names for themselves all the time. Many breweries are winning awards, accolades, and respect ever day, but some manage to fly under the radar and not get the accolades they deserve. In the last two years, so many breweries have come up in the Sunshine State and some of them are making good beer, some are doing good business locally, and some manage to find their niche and pour liquid gold.
