It’s what it says on the tin – yesterday we did a pub crawl working our way from the bottom – starting in Boca Raton and ending in Clematis in West Palm Beach, with our long time friends Mercedes and Joe. Five venues in total, three breweries and two bars, with an amazing array of atmospheres for a Saturday night. I’ve got my lederhosen on and and we’re all ready to rock. The goal? To scout out potential venues and gain a better understanding of the latest Florida microbrews!
Next up is The Duck. We’ve heard of this place and how they are said to have 99 beers available. The deal is if you can try all of them (not in one sitting of course) you will become the proud owner of a fabulous t-shirt. We had also been told that they were even selling a Pakistani beer brewed with dirt! Unfortunately we did not get to experience this, as the bartenders weren’t sure what we were talking about, and had gotten so many beers in recently that they had lost track. This place was super popular, and had all the open ambiance of a Florida neighborhood bar, with smoking still allowed and dart boards in abundance. We were very sad to leave their generous 2 4 1 happy hour on ALL beers!
