Brew at the Zoo fun.
Miami's weather gods smiled down upon beer fans at Saturday's Brew at the Zoo.
A cool breeze fell on Zoo Miami for the annual event that pairs 100 beers with great live music.
Dozens of breweries, large and small, showcased their best beers, while Grammy-winning hip-hop group Arrested Development entertained the crowd. Of course, with every food and drink event, there are standout moments, especially when it comes to local South Florida breweries. Best of all? With Miami's summer on the way, these hometown brewers turn out the best beers for the sun-filled days and steamy nights to come. Here are the five best summer beers from South Florida brewers to look out for.
Concrete Beach's Randy Jensen
5. Concrete Beach
Concrete Beach's Tropic of Passion is a perfect porch-pounder for the humid days ahead. A low-alcohol (4.8% ABV) wheat beer with a slight tartness from passionfruit and hibiscus, it starts out fruity but finishes dry.
4. Islamorada Brewing Company
Islamorada Brewing Company's Sandbar Sunday was designed to be enjoyed on a boat. This American wheat ale has a slightly spicy taste with citrus notes, giving it some good character.
