This Miami-born brewery is a favorite, even when it comes to non-beer drinks. It’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon or night with a group of friends, especially in their breezy courtyard.

They’re brewed with fresh flavors like mango, strawberries, lulo and guava to really take you to the tropics with just a sip. There are also micheladas and beer cocktails to choose from.
