The older of the two Sunshine State outfits on our list, Cigar City makes beer so good you'll forget all the bad things people say about Florida. Well, maybe not forever, but definitely while you're drinking one of their delightful brews, like the hoppy, well-balanced Jai Alai IPA, which clocks a 99 and 95 from RateBeer and BeerAdvocate, respectively. CC also boasts a solid nitro lineup (Café Con Leche milk stout, y'all), and is constantly rolling out seasonals, like their just-dropped Puppy's Breath Porter. The latter boasts a trio of labels designed with the likenesses of three real-life Florida pups, by the way, which is frankly just adorable.
In a largely beer-barren state, La Cumbre is an utter gem. It's got medals (Elevated IPA & Project Dank ale brought back gold & bronze respectively at GABF), attitude, and cans covered with badass Lovecraftian art.
