Part Four of our Festive on The Fourth Series is Unfilter Your Fourth with Brennan Grogan, Local Attorney, Travel Expert, Dad of 3, and Craft Beer Connoisseur.

Brennan Grogan was born in Rota, Spain, and is a long time Jupiter resident. His Grandfather, “Doc” Grogan, was a Jupiter Pioneer and the first doctor in Jupiter/Tequesta in 1956. “Doc” Grogan was one of the founders of Tequesta Country Club, JTAA, and he was also one of the founders of The Jupiter Medical Center, where he served for many years as the Chief of Staff. Brennan graduated from The Benjamin School in 2002 and went on to play baseball at The University of Notre Dame and UNF. After completing his undergraduate studies, Brennan graduated from law school from Florida International University. Brennan is married to his high school sweetheart, Brooke, and they live in Jupiter with their three children. When Brennan isn’t practicing Condo/HOA Law, he is spending time with his family, traveling, and trying the latest and greatest craft beers.

There is no better time to have an ice-cold beer than the Fourth of July. 

Last year, consumers spent over one billion dollars on beer on the 4th of July.  This year, if you want to try a craft beer that rocks the the red, white and blue, try a Stone Enjoy By 7/04/2020 Double IPA.

This brew was released on May 28, 2020 in preparation to be fully consumed by this 4th of July. With an ABV of 9.4%, this beer isn’t for the faint of heart and isn’t meant to be an all-day drinking style beer. However, one would go great with a burger and zucchini right off the grille on a hot summer day.  Because the yeast in this beer isn’t filtered, the brew feels creamier and heavier on the palate than your normal IPA.  It also means that the aroma and tropical fruits are more prominent than the norm. With twelve different hops, this is a complex beer that packs a flavorful punch. Beeradvocate gives this Stone creation a 98/100 and has ranked it as the #20 best IPA in the world.  So if you want to mix-in something to your standard Budweiser rotation this holiday, look no further than this Stone masterpiece.

You can find the Stone Enjoy By 7/04/2020 Double IPA at Craft Beer City in Jupiter, FL, where you can pick up your brews at the drive-thru without ever leaving your car.
