If you thought last year was busy with craft beer, 2015 is set to blow your socks off. With more breweries than we can count (we didn't do well in math, hence the writing bit), South Florida will finally close the gap of breweries per capita.
There are many, many, many hurdles in opening a brewery, the least of which is federal permits, which can take months to process. Securing a building takes time. Construction takes time. Heck, brewing beer takes time. All of these factors can delay a brewery from opening for what seems like an eternity.
Here, though, is a list of breweries that we're looking forward to seeing open in 2015. To the best of our knowledge, they are places that will open this year. Of course, anything can happen, but let's pursue an exercise in optimism. Is it all-inclusive? No. There are a lot of folks about to put out some amazing beers. Here is a selection to get your mouths salivating with the thoughts of new and awesome breweries in South Florida.
