Art Basel Miami: Pop-Up Biergarten to Serve Florida Craft Beers

Art Basel and booze go together like Andy Warhol and Campbell's tomato soup. So it's only fitting that a pop-up biergarten would make its way to Basel.

Chefs Andres Barrientos and James Bowers (of Aaron's Catering) are pairing up with Mixed Media Collective and Gaudi Castro to launch the temporary brewpub, Basel Biergarten, and it's setting up shop at the Wynwood Cigar Factory's "The Factory Art Show."         

The best part: It's all about the Florida brews, baby. As part of the "Drink Like a Local" campaign, the art installment of sorts will offer Cigar City, Monk in the Trunk, Michael's Genuine, Native Brewing, Tequesta, and Due South on tap.

The chef duo will also simultaneously launch Miami Smokers, a charcuterie house serving candied bacon and other artisanal smoked meats.

They'll have an eating and drinking area set up with seats, potted palms, and local shrubbery, as well as tunes by a DJ and live art.

The surrounding art show should also offer some interesting eye candy in the form of works by 131, Abstrak and Toofly, and others.

Basel price tags should look a lot more reasonable after a few pints of Cigar City Jai Alai.
