Wynwood Brewing Company Celebrates Grand Opening; Offers Panther Coffee Stout
La Rubia. Fresh beer for Art Basel.
Wynwood Brewing Company's tasting room will celebrate its grand opening tomorrow, Wednesday, December 4 -- just in time for thirsty art lovers to grab fresh, local brews during Art Basel -- including the rare (and delicious) La Pantera, a Panther Coffee stout on nitro!
The brewery's tasting room opens tomorrow at 4 p.m. with a free concert featuring Cog Nomen and Tony Laurencio (from Afrobeta and Beatmachines).
Wynwood Brewing will also unveil several pieces of art from local muralists curated by Yo Miami, including Claudio Picasso, Eva Ruiz, Trek Six, Ernesto Kunde, Ruben Ubiera, Casey Eaterman, and Daniel Fila. The art was commissioned to create a space that represents the community in which the brewery is located, with partial funding by the Awesome Foundation.
The brewery, which recently hired Nik Mebane as the brewmaster, will offer nine seasonal beers in addition to three core craft beers -- La Rubia blonde ale, Pop's Porter, and Wynwood IPA.
Beers currently being offered are La Oscura American stout; Lopulado Batch #1, a pale ale with wet cascade; Lupulado Batch #2, an imperial red with wet chinook and citra; Magic Sticke, a German sticke alt; El Dorado pale ale, brewed with El Dorado hops; Banana Hammock, a banana wheat ale; Stiglitz, imperial marzen with wet citra; CocoChoco, coconut white chocolate stout; and La Pantera, a Panther Coffee stout on nitro.
In addition, on December 4 at 8 p.m., the brewery will tap its new wheat wine. Really an American strong ale similar to a barleywine in strength, only two kegs of the wheat wine will be available.
The taproom will be open during Art Basel from 4 to 11 p.m. daily.
