For the average individual, the current anorexic state of the economy can be boiled down to a pair of very basic problems: too little cash and not enough booze. That's why the forward-thinking folks at Bin No. 18 must be commended for their Bailout Beer program, serving up affordable premium draft to cash-poor Miami citizens each and every day of the week. 

The Bailout brews on tap vary constantly, although you can always expect a fine, fancy selection along the lines of Tucher, Hofbräu Maibock, or Kronenbourg 1664. And due to the Bin being "60% European," the beers are poured according to the metric system. So your cold, sudsy relief will come in one of two sophisticated yet reasonably priced sizes: the slender 300 ML glass for four bucks or the half-liter chug cup for seven. 

Oh, you prefer to drown your recession depression in pinot grigio? Well, don't fret -- the Bin has not forgotten you. Grape fans should take advantage of the daily wine happy hour, running from 5 to 7 p.m., which provides diners with their first glass (provided they buy a second) for no charge at all. Or, if the booze bank is totally broke, pop in Thursday nights for the Bin's free weekly wine tasting, starting at 6:30. There's no better bailout than free.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
