The 8 oz. Burger Bar (1080 Alton Road, Miami Beach) wants to buy you a drink, it only counts for draft beer and "well drinks," but if you buy one first, they'll buy the next one. The Happy Hour runs daily from 4 to 7 p.m. and from 11 p.m. to close. What's so great about this place and why does everyone keep talking about it? I don't know, I never been there, but buy one get one free is a good deal, long as the buy one part's not a rip off.

Here's what they got on tap for $5 a pint.:

  • Joe's Lager
  • California Telegraph White Ale
  • Skyscraper Lug Nut Lager
  • Green Flash West Coast IPA
  • Telegraph Porter
  • Seasonal Dale Bros.

All those beers are from California, which makes us wonder if the 8 oz Burger Bar is so interested in buying us a drink, why don't they buy some from local brewers? Screw California, we got our own problems, Southern problems, and we should be able to drown em' in Southern hops and barley.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
