On Friday at 2 p.m., a group of friends got together to celebrate the opening of Wynwood Brewing Company.

The event marks the start of a beer renaissance in Miami, with Wynwood the first craft production brewery in the City of Miami.

Owned and operated by Luis G. Brignoni and "Pops" Luis C. Brignoni, the family business brews three standards, La Rubia blond ale, Wynwood IPA, and Pop's Porter, as well as a variety of seasonal offerings and small batch beers. They are distributed by Brown's and are also available at the new taproom, adjacent to the brewing facility.

The taproom is open, with brewery tours starting the end of this week. Short Order got a "taste" (including the rare and now infamous La Oscura, a stout made with Panther coffee).
