Johnathan Wakefield has become a legend of sorts in the craft-beer community. The brewer started out making beer as a hobby, which quickly became an obsession. Without even owning a brewery, Wakefield built a fanbase by collaborating with established breweries like Cigar City and Terrapin. Then he raised more than $110,000 in a crowdfunding campaign to open his Wynwood brewery. That brewery is famous for two things: its Star Wars theme and its Florida Weisse beers. Wakefield has perfected the art of brewing beers that are perfect for Miami’s climate — be they a juicy IPA, a fruit-forward sour, or a refreshing lager.
