Local Craft Beer Rocks! Hangovers Still Suck!

Finally had a chance to make my way on back to Orchid Island Brewery in Vero Beach, FL! The atmosphere is awesome, the food is good and the beer is amazing. There’s no shortage of good beer being brewed in Southern Florida, but this place is a must stop for anyone touring the local beer scene.

I was fresh off a conversation about an article I read that said the last time America had this many breweries in business was back in 1873 or so. These things are cyclical in nature, but a golden age of local craft beer is happening all around us right now. Why not take advantage and stop to smell the roses? And drink them too!

As I do, I started my Orchid Island adventure with a flight, which in my humble opinion is one of the coolest inventions ever. I have no fear of beer commitment, but the whole proof-is-in-the-pudding, try-before-you-buy nature of craft beer is inviting and addictive. However, I’m not the “top-knot” douche bag who samples one of everything and gets a free buzz, all while asking about IBUs and burying my nose in a beer snifter, only to order a Bud Light and reveal my true skulduggerous nature. I’m a true believer in craft beer, even if not the most educated sampler. Take a look at this pretty sight laid down before mine eyes…

Had to go full-sized with the photo on you there, so you could visually digest the majesty. I started with two sours: the Je ne sais quoi and Pink Lemon Sour. Je ne sais quoi (for those of you who didn’t major in French like me) means “I don’t know what”. As the evolution of my appreciation for beer has continued, I have found myself wandering into the sour section more and more frequently. Much like sour candy, it’s highly addictive, and also far more nuanced. Believe that sour was clocking in at around 8%, which is pretty healthy for that style. The Pink Lemon sour was much lighter, but – as you can see – absolutely beautiful to look at. Also included in my flight were the Star Ruby Imperial IPA, Beachside Berliner Weisse and Indian River Grapefruit IPA.

Of course I popped a pack of Intox-Detox and passed out samples to the bartenders and a few interested patrons. After all, the donuts must be made, even when you’re enjoying a couple beers.

I thoroughly enjoyed the flight, but it came time to order a full beer. Alas, the beauty of the flight is sampling the wares to get a general sense of the brewery and decide which libation is fitting with my current sensibilities. Not to mention the fact that it was $5 beers for Happy Hour until 4 pm. The flights, they are fun, but they can get pricey. Is it any surprise that I had to go back for a full glass of this beauty…?

Needless to say, it was delicious. Since I worked up a little appetite sampling these awesome beers, I ordered up a bowl of the Shrimp Corn Chowder soup, which didn’t disappoint. My only wish is that I could have stayed longer and made it a full meal, as both the beer and food menu left me excited to try more.

Sure, they have a cool outside area with a stage for bands and cornhole boards, but what I really found unique about Orchid Island is the “grove to glass” commitment quality. They actually use local citrus in many of their beers. They offer very cool citrus juice-based liquid blends that you can add to any beer to create a kind of choose-your-own-adventure shandy. That might seem sacrilegious to some beer purists, but I think it’s an awesome and novel idea, especially here in Florida where the weather is hot and the citrus is fresh and local.

Got me thinking actually… Intox-Detox has been busting our asses to create the World’s First Hangover-Proof Beer. Why not just put our amazing liver-protective proprietary blend into a liquid that can be added to any beer? Added to even the most middling American-style light beer, it would add unique flavors like Japanese Raisin, Panax Ginseng and Green Tea – things never before tasted in beer, at least not together – and you would also protect your liver and help avoid the misery of the next morning. It’s a great idea and I’m on it.

Hoping to add Orchid Island to our growing list of bars and craft breweries that carry Intox-Detox. My favorites among them are Sailfish,  Side Door, Vine and Barley and V&B Palm City and Castaways. Please show these guys some love and stop by for a few pints and a pack of Intox-Detox.

Can’t wait to get back to Orchid Island and continue getting to know both the beer and the people, both of which were impressive.

Intox-Detox Belgian Dubbel Ale is Good for What Ales You!

Hangover Prevention Beer?

Yup, we’re back at it again. Of all the products I want to develop – Intox-Detox Liquid Shooter, all-natural Energy Drink and Intox-Teatox Alcohol Recovery Iced Tea – a craft beer is one of the closest projects to my heart! I just love beer.

For those of you who remember, we have actually done this before. We worked with Sailfish Brewery, a local spot in Ft. Pierce, Florida, to make the WORLD’S FIRST ALCOHOL RECOVERY BEER. We put 3 of our Intox-Detox ingredients right into the beer. No capsules needed – you just drink the beer. It was a smashing success and I was anxious to get back to it. I am proud to announce that we are finally getting back into the craft beer game!

Some people don’t like to take capsules. Others just don’t do supplements. Sure, Intox-Detox is all-natural, gluten-free, non-GMO and even vegan, but I get it. People are hyper-conscious of what they put in their bodies. Totally understandable. That’s why it seems odd to me that most of those same people will gladly take prescription drugs or slog down a cold brew. To each their own!

Our first craft beer outing in partnership with Sailfish created “A Better Tomorrow Wit” – their popular White Marlin Wit, treated with our Intox-Detox ingredients. They sold the whole batch we made in one weekend. We’ve been chomping at the bit to get back to it. However, Sailfish has been expanding, which has kept head Brew Master Al super busy. Hopefully, when things cool down over there we will have a chance to work together again.

In the meantime, I became friends with an incredible award-winning home brewer named Etienne Bourgeois, who lives right here in Palm City, Florida. Not only does this guy brew beer like it’s his job – it’s not actually, but it could be – he’s so darn good he judges beer competitions. Who better to help us explore this concept and test it further?

After tasting our ingredients – Japanese Raisin extract, Korean Red Panax Ginseng and Green Tea – we have decided to brew a Belgian Dubbel that I am tentatively calling Better Tomorrow Ale. Etienne said something about “melanoid” notes or something hardly distinguishable from a foreign language to me. All I heard was a hearty, dark and higher octane beer. The beer will be formulated to deliver a full serving of Intox-Detox in about 4 beers, a moderate amount of consumption for the average guy or gal. This will ensure that the quality of the beer is protected, but that the product is actually functional for alcohol recovery and liver protection, rather than just a gimmick.

We don’t do over-hyped, marketing scam products. We like REAL SCIENCE. And we spend the money to do things right for REAL RESULTS.

Brewing the first batch begins in mid-August. The resulting prototype will be bottled and shopped around to different breweries to find a suitable partner, in hopes of getting local placement in bars and eventually national distribution. That’s right, Intox-Detox beer is a free agent. Naturally, the “hangover pill guy” knows just about all the reps from major distributors in Southern Florida. So I’m confident you Floridians will be able to purchase it sooner or later.

Breaking the mold in existing markets or just creating ones that should exist is kind of our thing. Remember what Henry Ford said…

“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses”. -Henry Ford

Fill in the form below to enter for a chance to be one of the select few to try Better Tomorrow Ale for the first time. We can’t sell the beer, but we can give it away to anyone over 21 years of age!

For the unacquainted, Intox-Detox is the ONLY Alcohol Recovery and Liver Detox Formula on the marketing that contains the full clinical dosage of the ONLY 2 ingredients scientifically proven to both protect the liver and help avoid the misery of the next morning, when taken BEFORE drinking alcohol.

Don’t want to wait for the beer to try Intox-Detox? I don’t blame you. Grab a FREE SAMPLE here (only $4.99 shipping). In 3 business days or less you will have your sample in hand, ready to hit the town!
