Sour Things Festival at Spanish Marie Brewery

Spanish Marie Brewery loves to throw a good party, and not even summer can slow the place down. On the heels of festival-themed events like "Spanish Marie and the Brewer’s Carb Stone" (a Harry Potter-themed Christmas season event), the Star Wars-themed "May the 4th Be With You Week," and the Halloween-inspired "Killer Circus," this week Spanish Marie Brewery continues its trend of hosting immersive themed parties with a Stranger Things "Sour Things" festival. Starting Thursday, the brewery will launch a sour beer tap takeover featuring out-of-state breweries like RAR and Mortalis and release a number of Stranger Things-inspired sour beers, including "Stranger Flings," a sour ale treated with strawberry, strawberry soda, waffles, maple syrup, and ice cream. Don't miss the one-off menu special of the day: a star-shaped Demogorgon pie. Expect an "upside-down" decorated beer garden taproom, and the brewery's speakeasy done up as the "Hellfire Club." 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. Thursday, June 30, at 14251 SW 120th St., Miami; 305-456-5490; eventbrite.com.
