Brewzzi (West Palm Beach, Florida)
Posted by BoaBeerBlog on June 7, 2011
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been blogging about Florida beers from my 2011 Spring Break trip in April. So I might as well continue with the Florida beer scene and write about my trip back to Florida a month later in May. I spent Spring Break on vacation on the Gulf Coast, but this time work was sending me to Palm Beach and a legendary oceanfront resort, The Breakers.
My meeting started early Sunday morning so I arrived on Saturday with my colleague Todd in time for a late lunch/early dinner. After checking into The Breakers, we took a car across the bridge back into West Palm Beach to CityPlace, downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment district. We were looking for a brewpub called Brewzzi.
Brewzzi was on the second level, and we grabbed a table on the outdoor patio, overlooking the heart of CityPlace. Our table provided us a perfect view to people-watch as we gazed upon the attractive West Palm Beach populace. From our perch, we watched a flash mob by high school seniors, the impressive water fountain that performed every hour, and a thunderstorm that swept across the horizon.
Enough with the distractions – I was at Brewzzi for the beer. I was disappointed to learn that the sampler rack was only available inside the restaurant, and they also served the beer in plastic cups on the patio. I could live with that, as long as the beer was good. I only tried two of their beers, and they were both excellent Belgians:
- Belgian IPA
- Belgian Strong Ale
These brews were considered Brewzzi Reserve beers, so they were specially brewed for limited release. I went up to the patio bar for a few small samples of the standard house beers, just to got a feel for the brewery. The regular beers on the menu were good but did not impress, but the two Belgian beers were awesome and strong. Todd and I were wise to stick to the Reserve beers. The combination of great beer and the West Palm Beach vibe made this a memorable brewpub visit.
