America Eats and Drinks Presents Hoppy Hour: The Fat Rabbit Pub
On this episode I travel to Tampa, FL and visit The Fat Rabbit Pub where I interview Head Chef Cole McBride, try a Wing Flight, and find out why The Irishman Burger  took home the Award for Best Burger. Then I head over to the bar where Head Bartender Travis made me their Sugar and Smoke Old Fashion and then I tried My Girl Blue, which to me was a lot like a Blue Hawaiian.

Drinking Across America - Chattabrewchee Southern Brewhouse
Drinking Across America - Chattabrewchee Southern Brewhouse
On this episode I find myself up in West Point, GA where I am visiting Chattabrewchee Southern Brewhouse. This brewery is a first in that it is the first female, active duty military, owned brewery in the country. It is also home to another first as well. This is the first brewery, bar, or restaurant in the state of Georgia to have a self-serving wall of taps. The great thing about the self-serve taps are that you can not only serve yourself, but, you can also choose how much of of each beer you want to try, anywhere from 1 oz. up to 16 oz. Although I was not able to sit down and talk to co-owner Cathy Dennehy as she was at the time deployed overseas, I was able to talk to her husband and co-owner, retired Army Officer Michael Dennehy. Go ahead and pop open your favorite beer, pour a glass of wine, or mix up your favorite cocktail and join me for another episode of Drinking Across America. Enjoy Responsibly My Friends Salute
