"I enjoyed everything about Florida Breweries. It would make a great addition to any beer enthusiast's coffee table."
"This book is definitely a must read for not only the diehard craft beer aficionado but also the casual beer drinker who likes to know a little about that they're drinking."
"The book is a thorough compendium of the beer scene in Florida, complete with...a brief history of beer in the United States and Florida, a few topicbased pieces (such as where to find craft beer in theme parks and an overview of the wacky world of container laws in Florida), and a nice glossary that can make even a beer newbie a little more confident...Whether you read it straight through or choose sections based on your travels around the state, our recommendation is to step away from the screen, pick up this book and then go have a beer."
