American Craft Beer Week is arriving soon, May 14-20, 2012. This is a week-long celebration across the country, promoted by the Brewer’s Association in an effort to highlight independent breweries and their beers.
Guess what? South Florida is an active participant in this event. Though I am often a homebody, I’m going to try to hit up a few events this year. To guide you through some of the best and biggest of these events, I suggest you go visit MikeLovesBeer.com, bookmark the page forever, visit his calendar and follow every word the guy says.
You might want to visit The Local Craft if you’re interested in Belgian-style beers or just love Brewery Ommegang on 5/14. Live up in Palm Beach County? Total Wine is having a beer and cheese pairing the same day. Dade, Broward, Palm Beach will all be very busy. Cervezas, Tap 42, Funky Buddha, Coffee District, Maxi’s, Laser Wolf, World of Beer, Lou’s Beer Garden and dozens of others will have excellent beer, themed pairings, tap takeovers, great food and entertainment.
Oh, and if you think you don’t like beer and prefer wine or scotch or whatever, give these events a chance. I am positive you will be impressed. Let me know what events you hit and send me pictures too.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
