Cervecería La Tropical

Cuba's oldest brewery made its way to Miami after nearly 25 years of research by Manny Portuondo, great-great-grandson of Federico Kohly, who founded Cerveceria La Tropical in 1888. Using the original beer recipe, Portuondo revived his family's legacy with a state-of-the-art brewery in Wynwood, bringing La Tropical to the masses for the first time since Castro seized power. The grounds are verdant thanks to an on-site annex of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and offer a full bar and live nightly entertainment. The beer selection rotates, but you can count on La Original (an amber lager) and Nativo (a suave IPA) to be available on tap. An on-site restaurant run by chef Cindy Hutson serves Caribbean food with a Miami twist, from beer-can bread with whipped guava butter to curry jerk chicken wings to a "Latin Lovers" flatbread topped with pulled pork, chorizo, and churrasco
