So my buddy is heading to Florida, I think Miami, this weekend and offered to bring me back a few bottles. Im from California so it will be nice to try a few east coast beers. Unfortunately I have no idea what is available in that area. I know Cigar City is supposed to have some really good beers. Anyway, all suggestions will be appreciated. And keep in mind that I can only have him bring about 4 bottles or so back.....So make them count!!!

Cigar City Jai Alai IPA- 12 oz bottles
Cigar City Humidor Series- bombers- get 2 or 3 cause it's amazing.

The Florida beer co makes a beer alled southernmost wheat that has key lime in it.

Red Brick Brewing co is from Georgia but only distributes in the SE states. Their special release stuff is pretty good.

I'd stick mostly with the Cigar City bombers. The Humidor IPA is incredible!!

Florida beer is not worth your time or money. I will add my vote got anything CCB makes. Also I don't know if you can get terrapin but they are good for sure.

If he is in the Miami area Total Wine has a nice selection of beer, I always stock up before going home. I second the Cigar City Jai Alai.

Select the location near where he will be and you can see some of what they carry

The local beer stores, like Total Wine, carry CC humidor series beers all the time. I second the Humidor Series IPA, just amazing. Perhaps my favorite beer ever.

I will definately have him bring back some Cigar City beers. Is there any other great breweries that distribute in Florida that dont get distributed on the west coast? They dont have to be brewed in Florida.
