Lose That Sinking Feeling at Titanic Brewery Happy Hour
Hours: Daily 4 to 8 p.m.
Deals: Discounts on all house brews.
Scene: Located less than a block from the University of Miami campus, Titanic Brewery and Restaurant would seem like a student stronghold with the accompanying mayhem and debauchery. Right? Actually, not really. Management says only about 30 percent of Titanic's patrons come from the U. That's likely a result of the quality quaffs brewed on premises in copper-colored vats behind the bar. After all, your average PBR-loving underclassmen haven't developed the beer palate to appreciate what goes on aboard the Titanic.
The microbrewery delivers some of the best ales, stouts, and bitters in town, with a dozen or so house beers always on tap. Those who can appreciate what they're drinking go for White Star India Pale Ale -- the Yank version of the English classic -- or the Triple Screw Light Ale -- a rich man's version of a light beer that goes for $2 Monday and Wednesday.
Conclusion: Despite its location and name, Titanic Restaurant & Brewery is not a crazed UM student hangout with normal folk abandoning ship. It boasts a relaxed vibe and has become one of the few spots in the county where beer connoisseurs can enjoy locally made brews.
