South Florida Beer Week might sound like some low-budget flick by the makers of the American Pie films, but it's real and in its second year.
The event, which covers a lot of territory, from Miami all the way to Jupiter, is filled with beer-pairing dinners, tastings, and happenings. Short Order is posting all Miami-area events.
