Johnathan Wakefield, Miami’s lauded homebrewer and new brewery owner, recently got in touch with supporters of his CrowdBrewed campaign to update them on the progress of J. Wakefield Brewing Company, or JWB. The highlights of the newsletter are:
*JWB should begin brewing on their commercial system at the end of this week.
*South Florida is still in dragon fruit season, so DFPF should be brewable for opening day.
*Construction has taken more money and time than anticipated.
*Tentative soft opening date is anticipated in December.
*No solid grand opening date has been announced just yet.
This is great news, as Mr. Wakefield hopes to join the ranks of Miami’s craft brewing community before 2014 comes to a close.
