05/22/14 - Thursday’s Topical Currents looks at the explosive rise in the demand for Craft Beer and the burgeoning Craft Beer Brewing and Brew Pub business in our state. Author Gerard Walen has written “Florida Breweries”, a comprehensive guide to the plants and pubs that are popping up like mushrooms around the state. Walen will relate stories about some of Florida’s prominent breweries, he’ll help us untangle some of the arcane vocabulary of craft brews, talk about their history and discuss their future. Cheers! It’s a taste of Craft Beers on Topical Currents Thursday at 1pm.
