Meet David Butler

Today we’d like to introduce you to David Butler.

David, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Honestly, the blog started because I wanted to write something. I felt that neither Florida nor beer get a particularly fair shake when it comes to social opinions, so I wanted to write something that would celebrate both. In the beginning, I wrote to please myself, but eventually, breweries began to reach out to say hello and partner with the blog. Only recently, with the suggestions of some readers did I decide to start a podcast, which I try to keep entertaining for both people in the industry and people just interested in beer.

Has it been a smooth road?
It’s always difficult to keep going and to self-motivate, especially when the site is completely self-funded. Life tends to get in the way quite a bit, and sometimes I don’t want to write or post a picture on social media, and just sleep. Sure, I will take breaks now and again, but I am lucky to have just enough support to be able to come back into things with a renewed focus.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I write a blog focusing on Florida Beer that (usually) posts a few times a week, plus hosting a podcast that airs biweekly on the Florida Podcast Network. While I am not worldwide just yet, I do like to think I have enough clout with brewers in the state where I am able to get thoughtful, in-depth information that other bloggers and podcasters are not able to achieve.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Pretty much every city in Florida still has a ways to go when it comes to having as many breweries per capita as places like Denver and Asheville. It is great to see that SoFl is making beer it’s own, focusing on the culture and the agriculture of the region and making a product you don’t really see anywhere else.
