Brew House Rock at Concrete Beach Brewery
8 p.m. Monday, July 10; $5
Concrete Beach presents regular informative sessions that allow you to get a little more intimate with your hoppy brews. The brewery considers making beer an art form, so to share the ins and outs of creating the product, it offers a program of monthly themed classes, Brew House Rock. June's focus is on the history and science of English-style beers. The session is cheaper than a beer and includes a one-hour class and tasting.

Home Run Derby at Marlins Park
8 p.m. Monday, July 10; $250 to $360
You love baseball, but the pleasure centers in your brain have been reprogrammed by years of internet-induced instant gratification. Skip all the boring downtime and enjoy only the sounds of the smacking bat against a flying ball at Major League Baseball's Home Run Derby. It’s not one, two, three strikes you’re out at this old ball game sponsored by T-Mobile. The annual home-run-hitting contest debuted in 1985 and is held the day before the All-Star Game. It’s also Gatorade All-Star Workout Day, so you’ll have plenty to ogle as you gear up to watch the players hit it outta the park.

Food and drinks play a big role. And fans today are no longer satisfied with just a dog and a beer. Find several new menu items that combine classic ballpark fare with Latin influences and local ingredients, such as Zak the Baker bread and Homestead tomatoes. Here are the ten best things to eat at Marlins Park.
