The Thirsty Topher
Between Central Florida and Tampa there is no shortage of breweries, so the list is constantly changing, but the owners do a great job of finding a balance between off the wall brews and refreshing standbys. The nitrogen generating unit uses blended gas, not only ensuring a great pour, but also keeping the kegs at ideal carbonation levels. Beer lovers aren’t the only ones to flock to this popular neighborhood watering hole, the Topher prides itself in carrying boutique wines unavailable in most retail stores, offering wine connoisseurs unique and hard to find choices. Oh, and ask Lando about the beautiful bar (spoiler alert: it’s made from a 2,500-year-old piece of wood found in the river of the Ocala National Forest). It makes for a great history lesson to pair with the limitless libations.
