Sprung! Beer Festival Spotlights Florida Craft Brewers

Sprung!, Wynwood's spring beer festival, has evolved from its original spring-break theme a few years ago.

Gone are giant Jenga and human bowling, replaced by a beer-aficionado vibe. That's not to say the festival was a staid affair: After all, with an chance to sample more than 300 beers in one sunny afternoon, attendees were ready to make merry.

The best thing about Sprung! is organizer Tony Albelo's commitment to showcasing Florida breweries. Local mainstays like Wynwood Brewing and Concrete Beach poured alongside newcomers such as Broski Ciderworks and Silver Brewing Co.

MIA Beer Co's. Encanto de Amor was the perfect beer for a hot Miami afternoon. Passionfruit gives this low-alcohol Berliner Weiss an added pucker factor.

Silver Brewing Co.'s Peach of a Gringa is a blonde ale infused with fresh peaches. The brewers plan to open a brewery and taproom in Kendall in 2018.

King Fox Brewery poured several beers, including an imperial Oreo stout, a peach grisette, and a blackberry-and-raspberry Berliner Weisse called Black That Razz Up!

Concrete Beach's Tangerica IPA has refreshing citrus notes for a balanced, drinkable beer. For those who like something hoppier, the Mas Hops double IPA with a 10 percent ABV filled the bill.

Give 3 Sons Brewing from Dania Beach a hand for its Vanilla Spice Spice Baby — a whiskey-barrel-aged stout with allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla.

In addition to pouring its popular La Rubia and Pop's Porter, Wynwood Brewing also offered a Cup of Jose — a coffee porter with cherry and chocolate notes.

Finally, a trip south to the Keys came courtesy of Islamorada Beer Co. Its Sandbar Sunday was designed for hot Florida days on the boat or beach.
