The 16 Best Breweries in Miami
Cuba’s oldest beer got new life in 2016 when La Tropical’s Original Ambar Lager launched in the United States. In 2021, La Tropical opened its own, glass-and-palm-filled brewery on the fringes of Wynwood, packing the place with couches, outdoor tables, and eats from chef Cindy Hutson. La Tropical is a far more upscale endeavor than most local taprooms, and though it’s not exactly fine dining, it’s as much a nightlife destination as it is a brewery.
Beers to try: The Ambar Lager may be the historical favorite, but unless you’re into Vienna lagers, it’s far from tops on the menu. The Nativo Key Suave is a fruity, 4.5% IPA where you’ll barely recognize the hops, and for something stronger, try the Tropilina, an 8% Double IPA that’s just a few points short of fueling your car.
