Beat Culture Brewing Company is one of the newest additions to Miami's growing beer scene.
"Being a new brewery in town, it's amazing the amount of support that we've received from the local community," co-owner Alan Espino says.
The brewery, which opened in November 2018, is offering its 14 percent alcohol by volume blackberry mead and a 5 percent ABV Escoozy wheat
In addition, the brewery is home to 3rd Heritage Kitchen. The eatery, owned by Jesus de la Torre Jr. of Jr's Gourmet Burgers in Miami Springs, offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Offerings include mac 'n' cheese balls ($10),
On Friday, January 25, Beat Culture will celebrate the release of its 5.8 percent ABV Split Window double dry hopped IPA. The beer is hopped with Rakau, Cascade, and Amarillo hops. It will be unveiled during the Beat Culture Blast-off Vintage VW Meet Up in coordination with Volksblast.
Volksblast started in 1998 and focuses on uniting people with the common interest of restoring vintage Volkswagen cars, from full original restoration to custom creations. The organization's meetup with Beat Culture Brewing will kick off Volksblast's 2019 countrywide tour. Money raised during the joint event will go to the City of South Miami Parks and Recreation's STEM program.
