THE BREWSPAPER / SENIOR BASEBALL AND BREWS IN FT. MYERS
Every year about this time, I end up in Ft. Myers, FL to compete in the annual Roy Hobbs World Series, a national amateur adult/senior baseball (hard ball not softball) tournament. Teams play all over the Ft. Myers area (sorry, we missed a lot of great breweries in Cape Coral). But we stick close to the ball fields.
As a member of a senior mens team called the San Diego Padres, we’re very proud to have won our division twice: 2015 and 2016. As defending champions, we’re looking for a Three-peat and we’re confident we’ll emerge victorious, again.
And, a baseball game only takes three hours so that leaves a lot of time to explore the Ft. Myers area in search of outstanding craft beer breweries.
From past experience we’ve had good times and good fresh craft beer at the following places:
