The craft brewery scene flourishes in South Florida. Now it's easier than ever to enjoy the warm breeze with a cold pint in hand. But if you are looking for an event to appreciate the variety of craft beers that are being produced in the city, we've got you covered. North Miami Brewfest in Miami will feature more than 200 craft beers and gourmet bites this Saturday.
This Saturday, November 16, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. you will be able to enjoy one of the premier Miami Beer Festivals. This will be a unique experience of limitless drinking, eating, and learning where you will come closer to beer culture by the appreciation of the craft and beer-making. The organizers have promised the biggest space, upgraded facilities and exclusive brews from every single local brewery. Ready to get tipsy?
More than 50 breweries will be showing their product, letting you taste & pair it with yummy bites by local restaurants (both sweet and savory). The VIP admission ticket will let you try unlimited samples of absolutely everything for $63.75 (they currently have a 15% discount).
Besides the food and drink, the VIP admission ticket also gives you 1-hour early access, a limited edition BrewFest T-shirt and commemorative beer mug, access to all the vendors and live music on the premises, beer seminars, and a commemorative tasting glass. You'll need proof of age to buy.
But if you don't drink or you are a designated driver don't worry, you can enjoy the food, water, music, and seminars for just $30. You will be wearing a non-drinker wristband so all brewers know you're having alcohol-free beverages only. Also, there are other ticket options and you can check them all here.
Some of the breweries that will be offering their creations are Biscayne Bay Brewing, Concrete Beach Brewery, Descarga Brewing, Exit One Taproom, Lost City Brewing, M.I.A Brewing, Monkey Business Brewing, Old Deck Beer Co., South Beach Brewing, The Tank Brewing Co., Unbranded Brewing Company, Veza Sur Brewing Co., and Wynwood Brewing Company.
Both the large-scale and craft ones will be offering their regular selections of beers, but also a special one blended just for this fest, so you get to try something truly unique.
Food will be equally tasteful and special. Amazing gourmet bites like slow-roasted tenderloin, BBQ brisket, and empanadas will be seducing your palate. And that's without mentioning the sweets.
The new location includes the MOCA Plaza courtyard and the connecting parking. That means more space for dancing with live music and entertainment, sitting, exploring, eating, drinking. And if you have ever been interested in brewing your beer then don't miss the amazing indoor seminars.
Remember that this a 21 years old human-only event, so leave your furry friend at home unless you have a service animal. Also, they have a very strict bag policy. Check the details here.
