Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Headline should read, "Hometown boys make good!"

I read something once that said nearly everyone in the USofA lives within an average of 10 miles from a brewery.  The boys over at Jalehouse actually are distributors, not brewers, so they contract their beer production with The Florida Beer Company out of Melbourne, FL.  Since I live within 10 miles of their first distribution points, we set off for a scavenger hunt.

The hunt was short and the hearse pulled in the crypt with six cold corpses for a quick autopsy.  This beer just hit the market in the past few weeks.  As I type, a cold one is only a few inches from the keyboard.

The beer is a great first effort, in that it fits the Florida market and lifestyle.  Many hot days here produce the need for a quenching beer that won't dry you out.  So these fellas did their homework and have come up with a great beach/pool/after a hard days work kind of beer.  You will find that they will slake even the mightiest of thirsts.  Wth low carbohydrates and low calories, they won't weigh you down.  Even the 4.5% ABV will keep the 'brain drain' at bay.

Bravo for your first effort!  Another micro-brew has launched, and right here in my own backyard.  Keep up the good work boys.
