The Berliner Bash on the Bay, an annual event that brings out the most acidic beers that Florida has to offer, has had to change its 2014 date.
Yesterday, J. Wakefield Brewing Company got one step closer to opening their brewery:
“The Feds gave us the thumbs up so we now have our Brewers Notice in hand”
Miami’s craft beer future is tremendous.
South Florida in general and Miami in particular has a large number of breweries in planning. Some are closer to opening than others, but by and large, Miami is ripe and ready to solidify itself as a mainstay of Florida craft beer.
Miami’s J. Wakefield Brewery sent out an email yesterday to everyone involved in the brewery’s reserve society, the OG’s. That email included information about their bottles, but more importantly, it gave a few details about how construction and equipment are coming along.
Johnathan Wakefield of J. Wakefield Brewery in Miami made waves when he announced that he would be flying out to San Diego to brew with Stone Brewing Company. More details have emerged on the beer he is doing with them. Wakefield, along with Stone CEO Greg Koch brewed a Florida Weisse with spicy peppers, boasting flavors of mango, guava, passion fruit, papaya, and peppers.
Miami’s up-and-coming J. Wakefield Brewing announced that they would be collaborating with Stone Brewing to kick off the new year.
