           St. Pete Brewing Company - Bearded Pelican Chocolate Porter: NEW A beautiful porter hopped with Northern Brewer and East Kent Golding Hops, to which they added a little bit of chocolate malt to enhance the favor and aroma of this delicious beer

FLORIDA ORANGE GROVES WINERY DEBUTS ITS MOST RECENT CREATION, ST. PETE SANGRIA! The wine will be available at our "IN THE DIP" Eating & Drinking Festival and at their winery located at 1500 Pasadena Avenue South. St. Pete Sangria was created by Lance Shook, who was born and raised in St. Pete. He has always felt a strong connection to his hometown and wanted to create a wine that captured the spirit of our tropical and historic city. Upon completion of the wine, Lance reached out to local artist, Derek Donnelly, and received approval to feature his mural "Lizard King" on the front and back label. Cheers!
