Local brewery Big Top is gaining serious ground in the craft beer scene. After a difficult launch thanks to shitty beer, they found their calling and the craft beer nerds are flocking. The newest Lobster Tail IPA that has a lovely blend of three hops from New Zealand and dry-Maine Lobster Tailing post-fermentation has exploded in the area and is even extending to Orlando craft beer bars.
“We can’t hold onto a keg! We figured Big Top would change to making good beers to fix their bad launch. Boy were we wrong.” explains local bar tender and self-proclaimed craft beer enthusiast Flobert Gibson. “Instead they go with a crazy strategy where they still make shitty beer but they put really cool shit into it!”
