Ready, set, pour . . . and drink. We'll begin our tour in the northern reaches of The Palm Beaches, stop near the center and finally finish in the southern end. At each stop we'll tell what to expect and give you a few suggestions. Thanks for coming along. Enjoy.

What's on Tap Up North

Tequesta Brewing Co (TBC) / Tequesta
The handcrafted brews from this pub are quickly gaining great reputation throughout South Florida. Started as a cozy, home-like restaurant with first-rate food; it's still there and brewery is right next door. And in case you're wondering, what exactly is a Tequesta? It's one of our 38 cities and the name of a Native American tribe that once roamed the coast of South Florida.
Try Something Exotic: Oh My Gourd, the seasonal fabulous pumpkin ale

Rooney's Public House / Jupiter
It's St. Patrick's Day here every day at this piece of Ireland . . . literally. Just about everything throughout the pub was built from salvaged, old structures brought from the in the old country. If you drop in on a Sunday during the fall and notice a whole lotta people wearing Pittsburgh Steelers' garb, it's because the owners are that Rooney family – the ones that own the team.
Try Something Exotic: Rooney's Old Irish Ale, the signature beer and recipe dates to the 1930s

On Draft Smack 'dab in the Middle

World of Beer / West Palm Beach
Want choices? This place has a beer for every day of the year and maybe the year after. From across the globe, they have whatever beer flavor and style gets you going. The featured draft beers change from month-to-month and are available for a nice price during happy hour.
Try Something Exotic: On the winter menu, Kalnapilis, a pale lager from Lithuania

The Blind Monk / West Palm Beach
The minute you walk in the first thing you'll notice is the movie – as in the movie showing on the wall, and usually a classic too. But you're here to taste the wares. The locale is small and intimate, but large on style and atmosphere. And if your companions don't drink the beer (how dare they not) the wine selection is outstanding.
Try Something Exotic: Evil Twin Aun Mas a Jesus, rare imperial stout, but watch out it has 12% alcohol (so fair warning)

Pour on the Southern Hospitality

Due South Brewing Co. / Boynton Beach
It's all about the beer here. This is a working brewery with a taproom for you sit down and drink the freshly made brews. Most of the time there's a local food truck outside or just bring take out. Again, it's about the beer. Free and VIP brewery tours are offered on select days and "corn hole" tournaments as well.
Try Something Exotic: Caramel Cream Ale, just like a caramel sundae, but with a whole lot more oomph

Funky Buddha Lounge and Brewery / Boca Raton
Recline on the soft couches, take in the sweet shisha aroma, order one of the 100 plus beers and find your nirvana. Do try the homemade humus and outrageous desserts. There is also live music, organic coffees and if you're tempted, hookahs.
