RED Episode #23: Tampa Beer Run Winter Edition

RUN

Last June, we launched our podcast, and the first run we ever featured was  the Tampa Beer Run.  A link to the first episode is hereTampa Beer Run  is not only special because it was our first, but because it benefits My Hope Chest, which helps those recovering from breast cancer with reconstructive surgery costs.  This was a great run in Al Lopez Park and with 4 different beer stops featuring samples from local Florida breweries and one from Georgia.  Don't forget about My Hope Chest’s upcoming GloWalk in April, too, which will be a great time running through the historic Tampa RiverWalk at night! 

EAT

Datz is a great place to eat in the Tampa area, only blocks from Bayshore Boulevard, a beautiful stretch of sidewalk, maybe even the longest in Florida, where you can look out over the beautiful Tampa Bay and where we ran Gasparilla in February. Datz features classic comfort food with a twist, has a great brunch menu, and some creative cocktails as well as an outstanding beer list.

DRINK

On the run, there were four beer stops featuring the following brews:

#1 Terrapin Hi 5 (IPA)

#2 Coppertail Unholy

#3 Motorworks Cruiser Kölsch

#4 Six Ten Tent Beer Lager

Our favorites were the Motorworks and the Six Ten.  We can’t wait to have them again.

At Datz we had a great cocktail featuring coffee and a powdered doughnut as a garnish!  Look for it on a Quick Bite in the coming weeks!

THAT’S A WRAP!

RED Episode 9: Running Wild, Drinking Great Beer, and Tio’z Dominican Food at LauderAle Brewery

This was an amazing episode to film. Thanks to Ryan Buynak and all the people at LauderAle Brewery and Tap Room for inviting me to film and to the Running Wild LauderAle Run Club for inviting us to tag along on their Monday 5K.

Run
Running Wild, a Fort Lauderdale Running Store, partners with LauderAle to host a 5K run every Monday night at 6:30 at LauderAle. It is a fun run that takes us from the brewery through the industrial park near the airport and back again. And what made the run wild? Monkeys. That’s right, stay tuned during the course highlights for monkeys.

Eat
If you want authentic Dominican food, come get some from Chef Blas Baldepina at Tio’z Urban Dominican Food Truck. We tried the fried cheese that needed no breading, the tasty fried plantains called tostones, and finally, chicharron de pollo. You need “smell-o-vision” to do all of these justice. The homemade spicy chili sauce was simply the best compliment to this meal. We were lucky enough to film inside the truck as Blas was making our meal, and we will feature that in an upcoming Quick Bite.

Drink
We got to go behind the beer and in this episode we feature Mike White, who is in charge of the brewing process at LauderAle. He gave us an introduction to making beer, starting with the water and barley, and he will continue this talk in another Quick Bite very soon.


LauderAle just won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival for their C-Porter, so it seemed appropriate to sample the porter that earned them top honors. With flavors like a hint of caramel, chocolate, and coconut, this dark beer is right up my alley, and I can see why it took home the prize! It is like a mounds bar in a glass, but this Porter is lighter in body than most at 6.2% ABV.
