Friday is the time to drink some beer.

Several beer-related events are happening this weekend, but there are three milestones in Miami-Dade County: J. Wakefield Brewing launches its tasting room, as does MIA Brewing. Gravity Brewlab is tapping two inaugural kegs of its first official brew, Sunshine State of Mind, at Lokal.

J. Wakefield Brewing is soft-launching its taproom this Friday and Saturday. According to the company's Facebook page, there will be a ticket system at $6 apiece to handle the anticipated turnout. Each ticket is good for two beers: one specialty pour (eight ounces) and one flagship pour (12 ounces). The brewery will be open Friday from 4 to 11 p.m. and Saturday from noon to midnight. Food trucks Nacho Bizness and Il Florentino will be out front selling food. Here are the beers for each day:

Then, beginning at 7 p.m., Lokal will tap dual kegs of Gravity's Sunshine State of Mind.

But there's an interesting twist with this tapping. Each keg holds a slightly different version of Sunshine. "We're tapping one of each at Lokal and letting all of the beer enthusiasts vote," Gravity's Diego Ganoza explains. "The one that wins will become the official Sunshine State of Mind beer."

It could be a tough decision. Ganoza doesn't think anyone has crowd-sourced a beer recipe this way.

Ganoza also released what he says is a tentative distribution list for Gravity's prelaunch beer, which should be available beginning this month. (Three of the beers are already on tap.) Doral's Eagle Brands Inc. will deliver the brew:
