I will be driving from Chicago to The Florida keys for vacation later this year and was wondering what local brews I should try and stock up on the way down to drink while I am on vacation and what I should get from the south to bring back home with me. I am obviously looking for things I cant get in Chicago.

Thanks a bunch for the recommendations

check into some Cigar City brews from Tampa....
Also Sweetwater when you pass through Atlanta GA
Intuition Ale Works if you make it to Jacksonville

Jai alai ipa from cigar city!

If you can get your hands on their white oak or spanish cedar version you will be even happier.

I enjoy some of Tampa bay breweries beers too like old elephant foot I think is the name. Another nice ipa.
