Clearwater’s Pair O’ Dice Brewing Comes To South Florida

In 2014, I traveled out to Clearwater, Florida for a bit of a brewery tour, hitting up a couple of Tampa area spots. This included Pair O’ Dice Brewing Company, which reminded me at the time of my own hometown brewery Due South Brewing Company in ambiance and area of location. When I was there, I sampled their Little Joe Stout, which was written up in the Broward Palm Beach New Times.

They’ve recently expanded their distribution footprint to include my neck of the woods, heading into Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties with a company called Crafty Connoisseurs Distributing.

I’ll let the press release speak for itself below, which includes some release party type event dates:

Pair O’ Dice Brewing Company is distributing their lineup of Core, Seasonal, and limited release Hop Streak Series beers. The initial roll out includes their Clearwater Honey Cream, Hop Bet Red IPA, Little Joe Stout, Shooter Brown, and Monster Roll IPA.

“We’re proud to partner with such a craft-focused, family-owned distributor,” says Pair O’ Dice Brewing Company’s Co-founder and Head Brewer Ken Rosenthal. “I was born and raised in Broward County. Julia and I are excited to be able to offer our Florida-only brand to our family, friends, and fellow Floridians in South Florida.”

“We could not be more excited to partner up with such an outstanding local Florida brewery like Pair O’ Dice,” adds Jonathan Myer, Sales Manager of Crafty Connoisseurs Distributing. “Their attention to producing local, high quality beers mirrors our company’s philosophy of doing business. We pride ourselves on only carrying high quality, TRUE craft brands that we would drink ourselves and feel we have the obligation to bring South Florida that alone…”

Pair O’ Dice Brewing will be kicking off its partnership with Crafty Connoisseurs Distributing the week of November 8th with a “Meet the Brewer Tour” to several retail establishments throughout South Florida. Meet the owner and brewer at any one of the four scheduled stops below.

  • Wednesday, November 9th at The Brass Tap – Boynton Beach from 6 – 9 p.m.
  • Thursday, November 10th at The Mack House – Davie from 6 – 9 p.m.
  • Friday, November 11th at the Tipsy Boar – Hollywood from 6 – 9 p.m.

When the craft beer scene was just emerging husband and wife team, Ken and Julia Rosenthal, would scour the country in search of their favorite brews. These travels led them to their specialty: aromatic and flavorful hop-forward West Coast-style ales. In 2013, the pair opened Clearwater’s first local microbrewery after perfecting their own recipes — all of which are designed from scratch and use Florida’s finest, naturally grown ingredients when possible. The name, Pair O’ Dice, is a play on the word “paradise” and it‘s how these native Floridians pay homage to their home state of Florida.
