The results are in; Das Beer Garden offers the most diverse variety of craft beer in Palm Beach County.

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.

Craft breweries have focused on tastes that were

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you,” Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”

Thanksgiving is a great holiday. There’s food, family, and fun. But when you’re caught up in all of the hustle and bustle that comes along with Thanksgiving it is sometimes easy to lose sight of the underlying value of the holiday, which is its ability to cultivate gratitude. There are many positive psychological benefits of expressing and actually feeling gratitude. That may seem obvious, but if you don’t consciousness practice being grateful for what you have than you can easily miss out on the

One of the nicest things about South Florida is its nearly year-round warm weather. Many of us, however, are more than happy when we get a brief, moderate cold front during the holidays. That’s exactly what is set to happen this week.

Today (Monday the 19th) will be the warmest day this week, temperatures will drop starting tomorrow and it should be in the 50s by mid-week, so if you live in South Florida get ready to light your fires and break out your Winter coats for it’s about to get chilly.

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is one of the best Christmas events around for families across the country. Thankfully this year the Orchestra will be visiting South Florida at the BB&T Center. If you live in Palm Beach the BB&T center is about an hour drive so and the shows start at 8 pm, so if you’re thinking about going, you should plan just go ahead and plan on spending the entire evening in the Fort Lauderdale are with your family. Don’t worry, there are plenty of great places to eat in Fort Lauderdale before the show.

Although the show is on December 14, the tickets for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra almost always sell out, so make sure to buy yours soon!

The Florida “cold snap” this weekend has lows in the 60’s rolling through, producing ideal conditions for sailfish cruising through. Kitefish with goggle eyes in 120-250’ of water, and after your first sail, target a tighter area around that depth. A few dolphin are still in the equation off Palm Beach Inlet, but no strong numbers seem to be showing up.

The snapper bite has been solid lately, with large muttons and yellowtail congregating on the reef. Live ballyhoo, sardines, or midsized pinfish work great.

Inshore fishing has slowed down quite a bit, with Snook and redfish becoming finicky to the tide. You’ll have to feel out each spot for what tide works best, and keep a close eye on it once you figure it out.

The Juno Beach pier has been

If you want to go boating in South Florida, there are some things you’re going to need. The first, of course, is a boating license. According to the FWC: In order to operate a motorboat of ten (10) horsepower or greater, Florida law requires anyone who was born on or after Jan. 1, 1988 to successfully complete an approved boating safety course and obtain a Boating Safety Education Identification Card issued by the FWC.

Alright, so you got your license. There are still some things you need to have on-board your boat before you set sail. In Florida the following minimum boat safety equipment is required on all Class A recreational boats (less than 16 feet in length), canoes and kayaks:

- One Coast Guard-approved Type I, II or III Personal

The bite was scarce last weekend, but it seems to have been picking up this week due to the full moon. A few wahoo are starting to show up from the full moon and mild cold front, especially closer to the Bahamas. Around here, 150-400’ is where wahoo have hooked up along with blackfin tuna. Troll with small feathers during lowlight for tuna, and use the small ones to catch wahoo. Another option is to pick up a local favorite Junkanoo Lure and high speed troll in a zig-zag pattern. Sailfish are also coming out of the woodwork, and kite fishing with hearty live baits like goggle-eyes or blue runners is your best bet.

Kingfish and large mutton snapper have been eating sardines near 120 – 200’, and yellowtail snapper has been showing up in strong

Offshore, football-sized blackfin tuna have been pretty easy to get ahold of in about 200-400’ of water. You can use small daisy chains or troll with feathers, but quite a few have been caught trolling with small-skirted bonita strips as well. We had a lot of success with neon green and white skirts this week, but colors are a game that changes by the minute, so try a few different ones and switch the rest out as you go if your target fish is tending to a particular color. Dolphin have been in the same areas as blackfin, and wahoo have been non-existent. On the first cold front that rolls through, we’ll have our local favorite Junkanoo Lures ready. Regardless of our lack of cold
