Miami's beer scene is rapidly expanding, and there’s no better way to get on board with the excitement than at J. Wakefield's taproom. Located in Wynwood, which has become the epicenter of breweries, the taproom allows you to sip your beers in a Star Wars-themed atmosphere. There, you can experience brewer/owner Jonathan Wakefield’s signature Florida weisses and sours, made with tropical fruits such as guava, dragon fruit, and papaya. There's always something new, like collaborative brews with big beer names like Cigar City and Terrapin. Where else can you have a key-lime-inspired beer under a life-size replica of the famous Star Wars cantina scene?
