It’s here! The official start of the festive holiday season! November 16 at 3pm (3-7pm, VIP ticket entry = 2pm) brew masters and beer lovers will flock to North Miami for the North Miami Brewfest 2019!  While others are making their holiday To-Do lists and dragging out boxes of tinsel and ornaments, beer drinkers are headed to mecca: 700 NE 124th Street – just a few blocks west of US1/Biscayne Boulevard or a short drive east of I-95 – at MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami. Free public parking lots and on-street parking is available.

The forecast calls for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-seventies, in other words: perfect beer-drinking weather.  And you won’t be drinking alone!  Spend the afternoon tasting from a selection of more than 200 special brews from 50 brewers, including Brew FIU, and talking to the brew masters about their brews. Chase down those brews with bites from dozens of tasty, trendy South Florida eateries! Everything is included in your ticket price!  No up charges or extra fees!  (What brewfest does that?! North Miami Brewfest 2019! That’s who!)

What goes really well with craft beers and delicious cuisine?  Education! The North Miami Brewfest 2019 offers three free seminars for beer lovers!  3:15pm = Exploring the Local Craft Beer Scene; 4:00pm = Off Flavor Course; and 5:00pm = the History of Brewing.  These short seminars offer ways to connect with South Florida’s thriving craft beer scene, information on beer tasting and testing and how beer began.  Whether you are a curious novice or a master brewer, you will learn something new from the FIU faculty, Cicerone Society/Pink Boots Society and SFLHops members teaching these deep dives into the world of beer.

If you have not already purchased tickets, jump on it! Call some friends and make a plan for an afternoon of fun and fabulous, glorious food and beer at the North Miami Brewfest 2019!  The festival is bigger and better than ever and there is no better place to be!

Don’t wait on Santa: give yourself the best gift or make someone’s day for $45 ($30 for non-drinkers) & $75 VIP).
