RED Quick Bite #49: A Flight at Islamorada Beer Company

A QUICK BITE FROM ISLAMORADA

This Quick Bite continues our week-long look at trip we took to Key West to run the Southernmost Half Marathon at the beginning of October.

This Quick Bite features a flight from Islamorada Beer Companyin Islamorada as we head down to Key West.  They had a wide variety of beer on tap to try as well as their own distillery.  I got a flight of 6 beers so we could share with you  some lighter, some darker, and some unique kinds of beer from  Islamorada Beer Company.  They did not disappoint.  I want to go back and get some of their award-winning rum to take home, too!  

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Episode #33: Freedom 5K and Gather in Cape Coral

RUN

It's 4th of July! Happy Independence Day to the United States of America!  We ran the Freedom 5K sponsored by the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce in our hometown to celebrate.  It was the first time we ever ran this 5K.  Be prepared for hills if you run this one!  You traverse the Cape Coral Bridge twice and part of an overpass in Fort Myers.  But it is a great view and watching the sunrise over the water while running to celebrate July 4th is an aamzing way to start the day.  Just a pro tip:  Try to do packet pickup prior to race day as lines the morning of the race can be a bit long.  Parking is also at a premium, so we recommend getting there as early as possible.  We tried to get there an hour before the race in order to find parking (about a half mile away from the start) and pick up bibs.

 

EAT

We went to a newer restaurant in Cape Coral to have some post-race brunch. Gather is nestled in Tarpon Point at the Westin Resort in Cape Coral.  The view of the water as you eat and drink here is beautiful.  We had a pancake and corned beef and hash.  It was mouthwatering goodness all the way to the last bite!

 

DRINK

Gather always has local beer on tap. Scotty's Bierwerks is right in Cape Coral.  They make a Hefe that is light, not hoppy and not overly carbonated.  With a low ABV and subtle flavors of coriander and orange, it was a perfect post-run beer.

RED Episode #32: Behind the Beer at Ulele Spring Brewery

RUN

Last weekend, we were in Tampa at the Richard’s Run for Life.  That allowed us to have a very special behind-the-scenes look at the original beer made at Ulele Spring Brewery.

EAT

Ulele is a restaurant inspired by Native American culture and the food available locally from our land and sea here in Florida.   The food and the beer go hand-in-hand to create an amazing experience at your table.  Can you say Alligator Hush Puppies and Charbroiled Oysters?  We can tell you they are delicious.  Look for more on those dishes in Quick Bites soon.

DRINK

Ulele Spring Brewery has an eclectic selection of original beers.  Tim Shackton, the brewmaster at Uele Spring Brewery took us on a tour of his brewery and told us some of the stories behind his tasty beer.
