Saturday we got ready and made our way to Downtown Abacoa for the 6th Annual Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival. We were provided a sampling cup as we entered Roger Dean Stadium. There were over 55 tents set up, and each tent had between 2-6 different kinds of beer. I originally thought I would not find a lot of beer I liked since I have only worked up to fruity wheat and some pale ales style beers. I was wrong!
Almost every tent had a wheat beer. With so many breweries and some many different kinds of beer, I lost track of the ones I actually liked. While talking to the guy at the Dogfish tent, I told him I liked fruity beers. He recommended the Fort Beer. As he was pouring he told me it was a Raspberry Belgian Style Beer with an ABV (alcohol percentage) of about 18%! Wait... What? 18%? I held on to it for a few minutes before I took a sip. I finally decided to try it and realized it was worse then I originally thought. My stomach hurts just thinking about it. It was more like a Port Wine than a beer. I guess that is where the name Fort comes from?
|This was after I tried the Fort. The tree behind me got the rest.|
|This was my reaction as a lady with the baby walked by. Who brings their kids to a beer festival?|
After the festival, we walked across the street to Jumby Bay Island. After standing in the hot sun all day, I was hungry! Me and Huck split the Chicken Enchilada Soup and the Cuban Sandwich with Fries. I thought I took pictures, but I can't find them. The Cuban is huge. I was full after 1/2, so I'm glad we shared.
