Last Friday night we went to the new microbrewery in Naples. I was so excited as Kosta and I both love beer (don’t get me started on looking forward to Bavaria and Austria this summer) and we couldn’t believe our luck that this new place is just five blocks from our place of work. This could be a dangerous Friday night habit to get into.
Riptide Brewing Company, 987 3rd Ave N. Naples, FL
The interior–love the mermaid coming out of the wall.
The vats are in full view of everyone sitting in the bar, and infused the place with a nice, malty scent.
My sampler from left to right: Whitewater Wit Bier, Paddlepuss Blonde, Porter Pounder, and Wye Nut Brown.
The Dangerous Nymph’s Nectar. Goes down smooth with a 9.3% alcohol content. Heavens, it was tasty.
The brewery doesn’t serve food but you can bring it in or have it delivered. That night a brick oven pizza food truck was parked out back. Their Bianca was killer.
We also had the Goat Cheese and Portobello pizza too.
My husband’s favorite: The Porter Pounder with his beautiful amber and silver komboloi.
Kosta and Tammy with Di photobombing.
A good time was had by all. We’ll be back.
