Craft Beer Memories at The Feast on Anna Maria

My Dead Parrot and Conch Republic Craft Beer Experience

As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a golden glow over Anna Maria Island, I found myself at The Feast Restaurant, ready to embark on a craft beer adventure. This evening promised a journey through the finest brews from Florida Avenue Brewing and Big Top Brewing. The anticipation was palpable as the salty breeze whispered promises of unique flavors. Little did I know, this would be an evening to remember.

Savoring Florida Avenue’s “Dead Parrot”

The name immediately sparked my curiosity—was this a nod to Monty Python’s famous sketch? This Belgian-style witbier arrived in a frosty glass, crowned with a vibrant slice of orange. As I took my first sip, I was greeted with an experience that was both refreshing and complex.

A Sensory Delight

  • Appearance: The Dead Parrot boasted a hazy golden hue, reminiscent of the breathtaking Florida sunsets that paint the sky in warm, inviting tones.
  • Aroma: The fragrance was a delightful blend of coriander, orange peel, and a subtle hint of spice, creating a sensory tapestry that beckoned me to dive in.
  • Taste: On the palate, it was light and invigorating, with citrus notes that danced playfully on my tongue. The coriander added an unexpected twist, much like the playful chatter of a parrot.
  • Pairing: This brew was a perfect match for The Feast’s seafood-centric menu. The citrusy zest of the Dead Parrot beautifully complemented the catch of the day, creating a harmonious and memorable pairing.

As I savored each sip, I couldn’t help but imagine a colorful parrot perched on a swaying palm frond, squawking its approval. Florida Avenue Brewing had masterfully captured the essence of island life in this delightful witbier.

Big Top Brewing’s “Conch Republic”

Next on my craft beer adventure was the Conch Republic from Big Top Brewing. The name conjured images of conch shells, pirate flags, and swashbuckling tales of adventure on the high seas. I was eager to uncover the treasures hidden within this brew.

A Pirate’s Delight

  • Appearance: The Conch Republic poured a rich amber color, like the sun-kissed treasure found on sandy shores.
  • Aroma: Its aroma was a tantalizing blend of malty sweetness with a hint of toasted coconut, evoking memories of tropical escapes.
  • Taste: On tasting, it revealed a smooth and balanced profile, with caramel and biscuit flavors that provided a comforting warmth. The coconut undertones transported me to a beachside haven, where waves gently lapped at the shore.
  • Pairing: The Conch Republic was the perfect companion to The Feast’s hearty burgers. Each bite and sip felt like a culinary voyage, with the robust flavors of the beer enhancing the savory delights of the burger.

Raising my glass to Florida Avenue and Big Top Brewing, I felt a deep appreciation for their creativity and dedication to the craft. The Feast Restaurant had become my personal haven for craft beer, where each sip told a story of island bliss and adventure.

A Toast to Anna Maria Island

As the evening gave way to a starlit sky, I leaned back in my chair, utterly content. The Dead Parrot and Conch Republic had left their mark—a feathered memory of a perfect evening by the sea. Anna Maria Island, with its captivating charm and vibrant craft beer scene, had woven itself into my heart. Here’s to this idyllic paradise, where the beer flows as freely as the tides and every pint is a celebration of the island’s magic.
