"Complex without being overly aggressive."
It's the motto Khris and Green Bench strive to live up to - and they do. Balanced, delicate beers that scream complexity and big flavors with intent at the forefront of every stage in the development of the beer. Green Bench, while producing some of the cleanest and brightest sour beers Florida has to offer, somehow flies under the radar in its own home State. That, my friends, is a shame. Please do yourself the favor of finding your way over to the tap room the next time you find yourself in Tampa or St. Pete. They're producing beers that us here in Florida should be proud to show off - and we here at Craft Commander are proud to show off to the world.
Not only is Green Bench using foeders and other creative and unusual fermentation techniques not typically used in Florida, but they are currently developing a koelschip for spontaneous fermentation and are planning a Florida terroir spontaneously fermented beer. A "traditional" Florida Geuze! Lofty goals for a dedicated and creative brewer in Khris that has the attention to detail and quality control to achieve them.
Stay tuned for the future of this great up and coming Florida brewery. We're excited to see what the future holds and are proud to say Green Bench is pushing the boundaries of what Florida has to offer. We hope you enjoy the conversation and we hope you do yourself the favor of trying the fantastic beers Green Bench is producing. To learn more, go visit the brewery, say hi to Khris, and grab a beer on the lawn!
