Brewmaster Colin Presby, 31, has a job at sea that no one else has ever had.
He does his beer-making at the Red Frog Pub & Brewery on the new, 3,954-passenger Carnival Vista. It is Carnival Cruise Line's largest ship and the first North American ship to have a brewery.
The action takes place in full view in front of passengers at the Caribbean-themed pub's entrance, on the ship's much-trafficked Promenade Deck.
Mixing grain he just milled into boiling water in one of two large, German-made, copper-topped glass kettles, Presby said his goal is to achieve a "wow" from beer-loving cruisers.
Living in the Tampa Bay area, it seems that there is a new craft beer brewery popping weekly. Actually I am surprised that the cruise industry has not done this before. Carnival Cruise Lines looks like they will have a winner with this brewery on the new Carnival Vista.
