The Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge just grew by about 4 acres.

Four contiguous beachfront lots on Jupiter Island’s North Beach Road were donated by the Coast Guard, increasing the federally protected sea turtle nesting habitat.

The beach is one of the most productive sea turtle nesting habitats in the U.S., the refuge's website says.

The now 1,095-acre sanctuary’s natural habitat — sand pine scrub, mangrove forests and miles of coastal dunes — supports about 40 plant and animal species listed as endangered, threatened or of special concern.

To expand the refuge, the U.S. House Tuesday passed the Jupiter Island Land Transfer Act, introduced by U.S. Rep. Brian Mast.

America has seen an enormous boom in the craft beer market, with beer enthusiasts demanding more complex and tantalizing varieties than the previously dominant light lagers. As recently as 2012, the duopoly of Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors controlled nearly 90 percent of beer production.

In the last decade, independent breweries have expanded by a factor of six, and while Americans are actually drinking less beer than they did in the 2000s, they’re often opting for a superior product, like one of the 100+ beers available daily at Das Beer Garden in Jupiter’s Downtown Abacoa.
