Back on February 23, CL published our annual Beer Issue, which always comes out a week or two before Tampa Bay Beer Week (even though it seems like these days, every week is Tampa Bay Beer Week). I usually take point on the special issue content, with a whole lot of help from staffers and contributors, and this year was no exception. Somehow, as a result of a visit to Ybor City’s excellent Coppertail Brewing to accompany our Artistic Director Julio Ramos on a photo shoot, I ended up on the cover this year, as well.
Here’s what I wrote in addition to the special section’s intro, which is linked above:
Heat and brewmidity (about upcoming seasonal trends for summer)
Road soda (about out-of-the-way area breweries/tasting rooms)
