Grovetoberfest: Miami Brewers Spotlighted

The calendar says it's October, but this weekend's weather felt like July as thousands of beer lovers converged on Coconut Grove's Peacock Park for the third annual Grovetoberfest. Luckily, there was a lot of ice-cold beer -- more than 200 kinds.

The brews ranged from domestic favorites such as Sam Adams Oktoberfest and imports like Guinness Red Harvest, but savvy beer lovers made a beerline for local Florida suds and the homebrew alley to find the most interesting flavors of the day.
