If you are a beer lover, you need to visit the 7venth Sun Brewery Dunedin, FL.  ( Seventh Sun ) It’s what most homebrewers dream of, and beer drinkers live for.  This place, and its owners, got it right.

It’s small, in a good way  (maybe 10 seats, and standing room for 20+ more).

It’s minimalist.  They run their cash register and sound system off an iPad. There is no clutter or beer stuff standing around (aside from the barrels and brewing vessels, and some T-shirts on the wall).

It’s clean, and friendly, but they make it clear, there is no Bud Light.

The owners are young and enthusiastic.  And experts, with a degree in Fermentation Science, and previous brewing experience with SweetWater Brewing Co, and Cigar City Brewing, owners Devon Kreps and Justin Stange are serious.

Their grand opening and first pour was 01-07-12, and since that time, the brewery has worked out any minor kinks, and consistently serves some of the most delicious beers I’ve had in one sitting.  Ok, here we go.  First visit, first flight:

Saison Extreme, Imperial Saison w Heather tips.  8.5%

Graffiti Orange, Creamsicle Wheat.  5.9%

Saison in Paradise, Grains of Paradise.  4.71%

FYA Extra Pale Ale, Single Hop Amarillo.  7.2%

Belge d’Or, Belgian Golden.  7.4%

Midnight Moonlight, Berliner Weisse.  4.5%

Not only was each beer well balanced, and an excellent representation of its intended style, but the line-up itself was perfect.  Something I find missing at a lot of other tap houses and brew pubs.  It’s the difference between listening to an entire record album, or playing an MP3.  One is art, the other is not.  As I worked my way down the flight, I drank slower, and slower, not wanting it to end.  But, it did, so I ordered a Saison in Paradise as my dessert.

Speaking of dessert.  My second visit to the 7venth Sun enabled me to have a glass of the coveted Double Donut Porter, brewed with a local donut.  Changes to the lineup included:

Summer Overhead IPA, Nelson Sauvin influenced IPA.  8.5%

Key Lime Sublime, Berliner Weisse.  4.4%

And the delicious Double Donut Porter.  8.8%

This is a beer destination, lovingly referred to as, “The Beermuda Triangle”.  With a nicely equipped hotel, convenience store, rib joint, The Dunedin Brewery, and The Dunedin House of Beer all within a five minute walk of each other, you can’t go wrong.  All locations are very supportive of each other, and all have outdoor seating and great atmosbeer. If you are ever within range of this place:  Go there.  *Most of Dunedin, including the 7venth Sun, are dog friendly.
