It’s hard to believe this is only the second brewery to open in South Florida (Tequesta has the first). In any case, Mike Halker of Due South was right on schedule with his new brewery, opened the weekend before American Craft Beer Week.
Due South has been bringing food trucks onto brewing grounds on weekends and taking over taps at brewpubs all along the tri-county strip. Thanks to Halker’s working with Brown Distributors, Boynton Beach’s newest tap heads appear as far south as the World of Beer in Dadeland, Miami.
Traditional-lager folks may be tired of hearing this craft-beer craze all the time, but the industry is only getting started in South Florida. Tampa has a strong presence nation-wide with Cigar City brews; it’ll still be a while till Palm Beach’s Due South can break the North.
