When MIA Brewing opened for production in Doral last September, its tasting room remained closed.

However, that fact will change Friday, when the brewery will open its tasting room to the public. MIA Brewing owner Eddie Leon said he should have his 2COP license, the state permit required to serve alcoholic beverages, this week and in time for the opening.

This will be a soft opening, meaning they will not fill growlers or beer flights, according to Leon. For that, you'll have to wait for the grand opening, which has yet to be announced.

Even though MIA brews have made their way around South Florida, there's nothing better than drinking them at the source. Brewmaster Michael Demetrus and crew have been especially busy whipping up batches specially for the soft opening. Take a look at what's on tap for Friday night:

  • M.I.A. IPA
  • Miami Weiss - Hefeweizen
  • 305 Lager
  • Tourist Trappe - Belgian Style Tripel
  • Edenboc-Doppelbock
  • Lost In Paradise - Passion Fruit Pink Peppercorn Saison
  • Czar Face - Ukrainian Anti- Imperial Stout
  • Rye Tortugas - Galaxy Red Ale
  • Freestyle - Mosaic/Amarillo Pale Ale
  • Mai Tai - Belgian Wit brewed with Almonds, Orange Peel, and Amarena Cherries
  • My Li'l Brony - Session Brown Ale with Maple Wood and Vanilla bean
  • My Li'l Brony Nitro
  • Kilty Pleasure - Scotch Ale Aged on Hickory Wood with Vanilla and Curaçao
  • Kilty Pleasure Nitro
  • Peat Sematary - Smoked IPA
  • Zero Dark Thirsty - Dark Belgian Strong Ale
  • Blue Monster- Grand Cru/Belgian Strong Dark Blended with Blue Agave and aged in Tequila Barrels
  • The MIA Brewing tasting room will be open as soon as owners receive their permit, which should be sometime this week, owner Eddie Leon said.

    If all of this looks impressive, wait until the grand opening.

    After years of readying the brewery, Leon is excited to finally open the taproom. He, along with others in the city, are paving the way to making Miami a craft beer destination.

    "Our taproom is where the real magic will occur," Leon said. "We hope it will become a major craft beer destination, not just for our beers but for all the other guest taps we will have on constant rotation."
