Miami Brewing Company, a division of Schnebly Redland's Winery, hired Andrew Guthrie last week. It could be said that Guthrie is the brewery's first proper brewmaster, since the person before him was more of a wine maker. But that doesn't make their beer any less delicious. Coming out of Cutler Ridge in southern Miami-Dade County, Guthrie is the brain behind all the new recipes and the improver of existing ones at MBC. All hail the Guthrie.
It's a moment that all craft beer freaks in South Florida have been waiting for: the official launch of Wynwood Brewing Company. The brewery's actually been open for business and brewing full-time since receiving its manufacturer's license last month. However, the official launch of its beer to the general public will be on September 23 starting at Gramps in the Wynwood district of Miami. Opening the city's first brewery in more than half a century, owner and native Luis Brignoni has finally reached his goal. This makes the second production brewery in Miami-Dade County. More are on the way.
