Updated: Mar 5, 2019

Calusa Brewing came home to Sarasota, FL with 3 medals from Best Florida Beer competition yesterday. The competition is held in Tampa, FL every year, inviting breweries from across Florida to participate. This was the first year entering into the competition since opening in April, 2016. Entered in 4 categories; Hazy IPA, Wood-aged Fruited Sour, Pilsner, & Brett Beer.


CITRONIOUS - New England IPA


FIRST PLACE - Hazy IPA category


DDH New England IPA unfiltered with stunning drink-ability and notoriously BIG aroma and flavor from the dynamic Citra hop!


NOW AVAILABLE ON DRAFT

















FOEDERHEAD - Tart Wild Saison


SECOND PLACE - Brett Beer category


Tart Wild Saison, with light funk and oak. Foeder-fermented with our house culture "Badoogie" with Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, & Pediococcus. These beers take time, planning and scheming...Foeder Goblin approves!


NOW AVAILABLE ON DRAFT

















THE IN BETWEEN - Barrel-aged Sour Ale


THIRD PLACE - Wood-aged Fruit Sour category


2 year Red Wine Barrel-aged Amber sour ale with boysenberries (a cross between Raspberries & Blackberries).


A place of strange beauty and heavy fate. The Ferryman’s stare chills you as you inhale the scent of fresh berries and fruit. Ancient waters of deep mauve and firm acidity carry you further down. Once the journey has begun there can be no return.


NOW AVAILABLE ON DRAFT & IN BOTTLES
