Not far outside Orlando on the I-4 corridor is a little town called DeBary. Here is where a small craft brewery, Central 28, is creating some solid drinks. Up River is their entry in the American Pale Ale category. Even though the hop presence is not up front, it does complement the taste along with its citrus and floral flavors. Up River is a good choice for a day of drinking in the Florida afternoons.
