The brewery's tasting room opens tomorrow at 4 p.m. with a free concert featuring Cog Nomen and Tony Laurencio (from Afrobeta and Beatmachines).

Wynwood Brewing will also unveil several pieces of art from local muralists curated by Yo Miami, including Claudio Picasso, Eva Ruiz, Trek Six, Ernesto Kunde, Ruben Ubiera, Casey Eaterman, and Daniel Fila. The art was commissioned to create a space that represents the community in which the brewery is located, with partial funding by the Awesome Foundation.

The brewery, which recently hired Nik Mebane as the brewmaster, will offer nine seasonal beers in addition to three core craft beers -- La Rubia blonde ale, Pop's Porter, and Wynwood IPA.
