    I'm in the area for vacation and am looking for some good breweries to visit. I also have never realized how much white trash is in Florida. I never seen more mullets, obese people, mobility scooters, and less teeth anywhere in my life. Zack Zedalis

    Well Pensacola is actually Alabama, so yeah. There is still A LOT of trash in Florida, though.

    They're called coast trash and they're awful.

    Also, the local population is probably a good indicator of their beer scene.

    Busch beer seems to be popular around here. The drive from 1992 era Pensacola airport to where I am staying was filled with nothing but abandoned buildings, dollar generals, bailbonds offices, shitty gas stations, and tons of urgent care facilities.

    Big Top and Perfect Plain have spots right around the corner from one another. I don't think I've been to any of the others.

    Also, I'm flying back into Pensacola tomorrow. Get back mid night local time. Will suck.

    The Panhandle sucks.

    Breweries elsewhere in the state are great but where you are is devoid of good beer hope.

    Big Beach in Gulf Shores is actually good. Nice little tasting room as well.

    Hopjack’s makes a good pizza & had great beer options. Pensacola Bay brewery is right there too.
    If you make it to Destin then Chan’s is a must

    Pretty sure Florida once offered to sell Alabama the panhandle for cheap and Alabama said they were good.

    To complain about Pensacola. What do you expect? Paris but with more culture? It’s the redneck riviera.

    I remember driving around Pensacola in my liberal mom's saturn suv with rainbow stickers and whatnot on visits. Good times, man. Good luck on your beer journey.

    Mentioned already but Hopjacks has bomb ass pizza, duck fat fries and in general awesome drunk food while having a ridiculous amount of beer to choose from. P sure it’s like 100 beer on tap.

    Local here.

    Brewery Recs:
    Perfect Plain Brewing and Gulf Coast Brewery are musts
    Big Top is good but can be skipped
    Pensacola Bay Brewery sucks a fat dick and only accepts cash because they fancy themselves to go extinct

    Restaurant Recs:
    Hopjacks
    The Fish House
    McGuire’s
    Nomadic Eats (food truck)
    Dog House Deli
    Flounder’s (Pensacola Beach)

    Other things to do:
    Come help prerecordedlive pack the moving truck

    And yes, you are going to see a lot of Florida Man while you’re here. This is quintessential people-watching territory. Pull up a chair and try not to contract a disease from the anti-vaxxers and meth heads.

    If you're in Perdido Big Beach Brewing is way closer than Fairhope. But if you come to Fairhope, you'll pass the on Buccee's outside the state of Texas and I will meet you at the brewery, as long as you don't go today.

    I'm originally from Pensacola -- born in Cantonment actually, home to Pensacola's finest and classiest residents. :welpseeyalater:

    Any suggestions on places to get Scuba certified down that? I'm going to Bonaire in August and need to get certified beforehand, so figured I'd go to Pensacola to do it.

    Leaning, MBT because they have the best reviews, but I have no idea.

    I’m seriously wondering why so many TMBers are coming down here at the same time. Are you guys all coming to help me pack?

    I can offer the remote possibility of me thanking you for your service and padding your TMB Like stats.

    PNS thread?

    Hurricane hitting pretty hard.



    Paradise being hit too sadly, though the part I care about the most and probably makes them the most money, doesn't seem as bad from that picture.
