Miami has never been known for its breweries, but it seems as though the city’s expansion has brought the development of the industry. Even famed Chicago brewers from Goose Island have recognized the potential for brewery in Miami and brought their exclusive ales to the city in the past. But you don’t need to wait for Goose Island to swing by or take a trip to Chicago for a wide selection of coveted craft beer.
Here’s a list of the best places where you can get your fix, right in Miami:
In the heart of Brickell and serving a reinvented modern American cuisine, OTC supports local brewers such as 3 Sons and Wynwood Brewing Company and serves a wide variety of craft beers on tap, including Wynwood La Rubia Raspberry, Funky Buddha Floridian, and Sixpoint Hi-Res.
Located conveniently next to the American Airlines Arena, Biscayne Tavern is a great place for Miami Heat game goers. And for those who prefer enjoying their drinks courtside, you can find them in Section 325 inside the arena. Their selection includes Monk in the Trunk Amber Ale, Florida Lager, and Crisp Apple. Biscayne Tavern also hosts beer dinners and frequent tap takeovers where you can taste ales that are not readily available.
