The Abbey Brewing Company

Miami Beach's first official craft beer bar, the Abbey Brewing Company opened in 1995 — you know, before it was cool. It's now a landmark for those seeking handcrafted brews (not to mention a curated selection of small-batch whiskeys, rare wines, and small bites) in an intimate setting removed from the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive. Although the menu offers a full liquor bar, the half-dozen house-made brews are the focus here, thanks to founder and longtime brewmaster Raymond Rigazio, whose offerings include a series of Trappist-themed beers like Brother Aaron's Quadrupel, Sister Tina's Tripel, and Brother Dan's Dubbel.
