Free Keg Scavenger Hunt at Veza Sur. This weekend, go on a scavenger hunt for a free keg from Veza Sur Brewing Co. Beginning Friday, Veza Sur will hide 24 kegs across Miami and post various hints to its Instagram account. Lucky users who find a keg by Sunday evening must snap a photo and post it to their feed, tagging @VezaSurBrewingCo and #HechaEnMiami, to claim their own keg of the brewery’s Mala Yerba Session IPA. Through Sunday, April 21, at Veza Sur, 55 NW 25th St., Miami; 305-362-6300; vezasur.com.
Knaus Berry Farm Closes for Season. The farm stand and bakery, best known for cinnamon rolls and strawberry shakes, will close Saturday at 5:30 p.m. or when they run out of everything, according to Thomas Blocher, who heads operations at the Redland farm. At that time, Miami officially loses its favorite cinnamon rolls until the fall. As always, Blocher asks customers to be patient while waiting and to understand if a favorite item is sold out. If you want Miami's ultimate sweet treat, you might think about using that personal day and hightailing it to the farm sometime this week. Prepare to stand in line and bring cash — Knaus Berry Farm does not accept credit cards. Cinnamon rolls cost $11 for a dozen, $5.90 for a half-dozen, or $1.25 each. Pecan rolls cost $13.75 for a dozen. The rolls freeze surprisingly well, so get an extra dozen. The bakery is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. including Good Friday. SW 248th St., Homestead; 305-247-0668; knausberryfarm.com.

Miami Brewers Celebrate 4/20 With Special Events and Beer Releases. On Saturday, thousands of people will celebrate by getting high with friends. There are many legends as to the day's origins, from Grateful Dead connections (they requested room 420 at hotels a lot) to a group of high-school kids in San Rafael, California, meeting daily at 4:20 p.m. to get stoned. Many festivities are planned for 4/20, including events at Miami breweries making special beers inspired by the day, and at least one contains CBD. Beat Culture Brewery's Commander Brain Drain is a limited-edition northeast IPA with blueberry, lactose, French vanilla, and CBD oil. The 7.6 percent ABV beer will be poured at Lokal and Kush on 4/20 and served at Tripping Animals' Irie Jungle Festival.
