Top Breweries (in no specific order)
1. Wynwood Brewing Company
Wynwood Brewing Company was Miami’s first craft production brewery. It was founded by Luis Brignoni and his father “Pops” Brignoni Sr.
The company is rooted in the family’s Puerto Rican heritage and is actually named after the arts district they’re from. Wynwood Brewing is inspired by Miami’s art scene on both a local and international level.
The brews include their flagship, La Rubia Blonde Ale, a Laces IPA, Lock On, Father Francisco, and Pop’s Porter. The latter placed gold at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival. Their mission at Wynwood Brewing Company is to create an innovative, consistent, high-quality beer for everyone.
2. J Wakefield Brewing
You don’t have to go far from our first brewing company mentioned to find the second. Also located in the Wynwood Arts District, J Wakefield Brewing, first created in 2015, is an independent craft brewery and taproom.
J Wakefield offers tasters a wide range of options from sours to classics by crafting traditional styles with a slight flare of the unexpected.
The Brewing company brews all right in-house. By using two separate kettles for the production of sours and classics, they never have to choose between producing one over the other.
When enjoying the taproom, select from 15 beers to enjoy while taking in the custom murals of Star Wars characters, comic book lithographs, or sit and watch a show on their TVs. You can also find a seat in their beer garden.
J Wakefield Brewing has gained worldwide recognition and has come a long way since originally being a hobby for John (the J in J Wakefield) in 2005.
