BeerVibe Beer Tastings in Miami

Vol. 2

Bimini Twist sounds more like a dance from the Bahamas than an IPA brewed by 3 Daughters Brewing Company from St. Petersburg, Florida. The canned beverage when poured out has a lovely look about it. But will the contents endure the scrutiny? Let see.

Ending Comments

Brewed for its refreshing twist, to be eaten with fish, our BeerVibe Tasters would rather drink it while pretending to be swaying to tropical breezes. Imagine that, tropical breezes in Bimini the next time this beer gets poured into your glass.
