Happy Monday friends! How do the weekends always seem to go by so quickly? Sometimes I feel like I blink and it's over. We didn't have any plans this weekend so we decided to head out to a local brewery and start the Central Florida Ale Trail. You might be wondering, what the heck is the Central Florida Ale Trail? Well, 16 different breweries in the Orlando area have teamed up to create the Central Florida Ale Trail. You start out at one (you can choose anyone you want to start and finish at) pick up a Ale Trail map and at each brewery you get a stamp that proves you enjoyed a beer at their location and when you've completed the entire trail you get a special growler celebrating your achievement. Sounds pretty simple right? That's because it is!
We decided to start the trail at a brewery we had never been to before, Central 28 Beer Company in Debary. A bit off the beaten path, Central 28 is a cute little family owned tasting room and brewery that opened almost 2 years ago. On tap they have several of their core year-round beers; Dancing Pierre, a Belgian-Style Pale Ale, Trekker Bier, a Farmhouse Ale, Up River, an American Pale Ale, The Flying Rivera Sisters, a Golden Ale, Ms. Mary Brown, a Brown Ale, and Little Wheel, an American IPA. I decided to go with the Dancing Pierre which was an easy sipper, perfect for the hot, sunny day. If you're not a beer fan, Central 28 also has red and white wines available and it's a very relaxed environment so it's kid-friendly!
Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
