Wynwood Brewing Company Plans Its First Brews Cruise on Norwegian Escape

You've heard about booze cruises, but how about a brews cruise? 

Wynwood Brewing Company just announced its first-ever cruise. The Wynwood Brewing Company Cruise will set sail May 6, 2017, from PortMiami for a seven-day adventure aboard Norwegian Cruise Line's Escape

The ship will travel to St. Thomas, Tortola, and Nassau. Wynwood Brewing's founder, Luis Brignoni, has planned a host of exclusive parties and events for guests while at sea.

Special activities for WBC shipmates include a welcome reception with drinks, a beer-pairing dinner, and a beer-and-cheese tasting. The week will end with a farewell mingle where passengers can hoist one last pint or two with new friends.

And because there are things in life other than food and beer (sometimes), the trip will include a special three-on-three basketball tournament, a ropes course, and a special goody bag.

The cruise costs $1,500 per person for a balcony cabin, based on double occupancy, and taxes, port fees, and gratuities are included in the pricing. 
This isn't the first time Wynwood Brewing Company has aligned itself with the Norwegian Escape. The monster cruise liner, which boasts 18 decks and accommodates 4,348 passengers, hosts the District, a craft beer bar that features Wynwood Brewing Company beers, along with cocktails created by Bar Lab's Gabe Orta and Elad Zvi. The Miami-centric ship (Pitbull is its godfather) is also home to a re-creation of the much-missed bar Tobacco Road and the Pubbelly Boys' Food Republic.
