The Pubbelly team’s popular Italian eatery, Macchialina Taverna Rustica, has joined forces with local craft brewer Gravity Brewlab to host their first-ever Craft Beer Happy Hour.

Offered in the bar area only, guests can walk up to a special carving station and order Chef/Owner Michael Pirolo’s sandwich of house-made, hand-carved porchetta with topping choices such as crispy potatoes, pepperonta, or broccolini, served on a fresh baguette, while sipping on Gravity Brewlab’s Saizonetta beer. Created just for Macchialina to pair the porchetta, the traditional Belgian farmhouse ale, offered along with the sandwich for $5, is brewed with the uncooked semolina grain from Macchialina.

The monumental first keg tapping will occur during the event by the brewmaster himself, Diego Ganoza, who will also be on-site to mingle, taste and answers questions with guests.

Local artist Daniel Fila, or Krave, known best for his mural “Erin,” a 13-foot posterior-view nude painted along Biscayne Boulevard in the Design District, will be on-site in front of Macchialina during the Happy Hour for a live art exhibition.

Macchialina’s regular Happy Hour specials – $5 house wines and cocktails, $1.50 oysters and a combo of Pirolo’s delightful margherita pizza with a pint of Peroni beer for $10 – as well as the a la carte and Miami Spice dinner menus, will also be offered during the Craft Beer Happy Hour. Macchialina’s rustic Italian fare has received a 3½-Star Excellent rating from The Miami Herald and an equally stellar review from The Miami New Times, as well as a great deal of other local and national attention.

Having noticed a void of innovative, top-quality, locally-crafted beer in Miami, Gravity Brewlab Owner Diego Ganoza, with the help of fellow brewers Robert Tejon and Seth Hammond, sought to fill this vacancy by designing a brewery that operated under the philosophy of creating beer that is 100% unique to Miami. Drawing inspiration for each custom-made draft from the individuality of the city, its diverse cuisines, and of course, the prolific local ingredients, Gravity Brewlab has infiltrated the Florida beer market through participation in festivals, pairings, happy hour events, and tap-takeovers at some of Miami’s most popular restaurants and bars, gaining growing notoriety and respect. Their most recent collaboration includes “Gin and Juice,” a gin barrel-aged double IPA with prestigious Tampa-based Cigar City Brewing. Gravity Brewlab has received many nods from the community including features in Miami New Times, Thrillist Miami,, and nationally, Serious Eats: Serious Drinks. Head brewer Robert Tejon has also been listed in Miami New Times’ Top 15 Tastemakers.
