Thursday's Daily Pulse

What you need to know about Florida today

| 2/28/2013

› Winter Park could get minor league baseball stadium
Winter Park would become home to a baseball stadium shared by Rollins College and a minor-league team under a proposed deal involving the city, the college, the team and Ravaudage developer Dan Bellows.

› Tampa Bay the new hotbed of craft beer
What's orange and quenching, sometimes fruity and sour, and oh-so-Florida? If you guessed orange juice, you haven't been paying attention. It appears beer is Florida's new liquid gold. In the past 18 months, craft beer has exploded in the Tampa Bay area.

› Florida faces gun bill standoff
For a gun-friendly state like Florida, there’s a lack of gun-friendly bills that will be considered in this year’s legislative session. Instead, Democrats are trying to control the gun agenda with a slew of bills that mostly try to undo or change what Republicans have done in the past. Other bills would allow local governments the right to ban guns at certain events. Good luck with that.

› Brass Tap expanding to Orlando
A Florida craft-beer chain called Brass Tap plans to open its first Orlando bar later this year. The Brass Tap has more than 300 craft beers and wines. It also sells cigars and features live music.
