Free Beer at LoKal's Home Brewers Bash Tonight and Tomorrow!

Miami and Broward home brewers are back at the second annual Home Brewers Bash at LoKal -- and this year, the event is so big, it spans two evenings.

Tonight and Thursday, October 17, from 6 to 10 p.m., the Coconut Grove beer and burger joint will allow home brewers to take over the taps.

This is your opportunity to try beers by local brewers on the verge of making it big. Who knows? The ale in your hand could have been made by the next Wynwood Brewing Company or J. Wakefield.
