SARASOTA — Chef Darwin Santa Maria of Darwin’s on 4th, 1525 Fourth St., Sarasota, will create two special release beers this fall with Florida breweries Cigar City Brewing and Green Bench Brewing Co.
“My goal with these collaborations is to inspire other chefs in the area to seek out local breweries and elevate the way top-tier Florida restaurants treat beer,” said Santa Maria.
The first special release brew will be based on Peruvian and Amazonian ingredients and created in conjunction with Wayne Wambles, brewmaster at Cigar City Brewing in Tampa.
The second special release will be a sour beer created with Brewmaster Khristopher Johnson of Green Bench Brewing Co. in St. Pete.
The beers will be available for a limited time only at Darwin’s on 4th.
