Proving that a marriage can be made stronger through alcohol: Due South Brewery, a 15000sqft facility now filling South Florida's gaping beer void with 7000 gallons a month, founded because the owner wanted to craft a brew that wouldn't trigger his wife's sulfite sensitivity. Got questions? Here are the answers:
How many styles do they have?
They've got styles for the whole family! As long as the whole family is 21+. That means eight to start -- from Caramel Cream Ale, to 6.1% ABV Cocoa Stout, to the extra-hoppy red IPA CAT 4 -- with two new entries a month, all using all-natural, locally sourced ingredients like hand-cut vanilla bean and freshly harvested bee honey, so you know it's the absolute Pooh.
Where can I try all eight styles in one sitting because I'm cool like that?
Their on-site bar, the Taproom, which, besides being a far less stupid name for a sex room than The Red Room of Pain, also boasts funky beer art, tables surrounding the actual vats, and a separate, AC-equipped space that'll host cornhole tourneys every Sunday at 6p.
What if I have to leave early to feed my cat?
Then you probably got the 50 Shades of Grey reference above, and therefore should get a dog. But in any event, grab a one-gallon growler -- it's only $6 to refill ($7 for special beers).
Does the Taproom have guest taps?
Funny you should ask. Not hilarious, but funny -- and yes, there'll be 3-4 rotators from other Florida breweries.
Do they give tours?
You bet your sweet ass! Or your watch if you can't get any takers on the ass. Anyway: for now, just ask and they'll give you a quick run-through, free of charge, but soon they'll host VIP tours that'll work in a tasting.
I get really hungry when I drink. Do they have any food?
You're welcome to bring food in, and every Friday, Lucille's Food Truck will provide stuff like New Mexico Frito pie, baby backs, pulled pork sandos, and a cheese-stuffed burger called the Jucy Lucy -- not named after the dude's wife, despite the fact that, thanks to her husband, she can now get juiced.
