I don’t usually post about beer events, because 1) others already do a far better job of this than I ever could, and 2) I don’t even know about every single beer-related happening in South Florida, anyway.
That said, if you like drinking local beer, and want to support our homegrown beer scene and all B.R.E.W. FIU does to promote it, this weekend’s Biscayne Brewers Expo at FIU’s North campus is worth a look. For $25 advance purchase (http://biscaynebrewersbash.com/) (http://www.voicedailydeals.com/miami/) or $35 at the door, you’ll be tasting 40+ beers with spent grain pretzels and beer mustard.
My guess is that 40 beers will end up having been a conservative estimate. Also, have you been wanting to try beers from the famed Funky Buddha Lounge, and Due South Brewing, but never feel like actually making the drive to the 561 area code? Here’s your chance, as both will be represented. The list of local and semi-local brewers:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida Beer Co
Looks to be a quality event, without the huge crowds of some other area beer festivals. I won’t be able to make it, but if you go, definitely tweet it, blog it, let me know how it was.
