Being a mid-west native, I really didn’t know what to expect from Florida Craft Beer. I had heard of Cigar City (see interview/tour #1), but that’s about it. So you can imagine my thrill when I was able to touch base with 7venth Sun brewing in beautiful Dunedin, Florida.
It was 11am and I had maybe 4 hours of sleep the night before, but as we pulled up to 7venth Sun, I was immediately jolted with the awesome fact that I would be spending my day, experiencing some of the best craft beer that Florida has to offer. As I gazed upon the home of 7venth Sun, I wasn’t sure if I was looking at the brewery, or possibly a nearby coffee shop (and I dig coffee shops). When we entered the brewery, we were greeted by Co-Owner and Founder, Devon Kreps. This woman is as warm as the entire state; welcoming, funny, a bright soul that knows a TON about beer. While tasting the diverse selection of original brews, Devon and I discussed the growing industry of craft beer in Florida, what it takes to run a nano brewery, Umphrey’s McGee, sweet potato beers, and why 7venth Sun kicks so much ass (my words).
