Your Guide to Miami Breweries

Miami breweries are among the most well-received in the world.

Craft breweries are all the rage these days and it should come as no surprise that Miami is at the forefront. The Miami area is home to a variety of popular and top-rated breweries, meaning there’s a brew for every taste. Simply picking up one of these beers from a convenience store doesn’t quite tell the story, though. Pay a visit to any of Miami’s breweries and you’ll discover new beers, see the process up-close and learn a lot. You’re likely to make some new friends, too!

Wynwood Brewing Company

Founded in 2011, Wynwood Brewing Company is relatively new to the scene, but has quickly established itself as a destination for beer enthusiasts. Miami’s first craft production brewery pays homage to its founders’ Puerto Rican heritage, along with its namesake neighborhood, Wynwood Arts District - one of the most vibrant art communities in the world. With Miami-centric murals on the walls and spray-can tap handles, Wynwood Brewing is unique, quirky and a lot of fun.

Veza Sur

A collaboration between the Bogota Beer Company and 10 Barrel Brewing in Oregon, Veza Sur is famous for its Latin America-inspired beer. The light, warm-weather flavors blend in perfectly in Miami! Along with their free brewery tours, you can enjoy some great food at their outdoor bar and food truck. It’s a great place to spend a sunny afternoon.

J. Wakefield Brewing

Wakefield’s humble beginnings make it one of the most endearing and down-to-earth breweries in the Miami area. This Wynwood brewery was started by Jonathan Wakefield, a popular homebrewer who used crowdfunding to get J. Wakefield Brewing off the ground. Aside from their great brews, the brewery is also home to a Star Wars-themed taproom that you just have to see for yourself.

If you’re planning on visiting these or any of the many other breweries in the area, book a stay with us at the Hilton Miami Downtown. We’re conveniently located near the Wynwood Arts Disctrict, as well as other non-brewery attractions. Don’t miss out on a memorable Miami beer pilgrimage. Reserve your stay with us today!

One of the most-anticipated corporate events of the year is just around the corner. Fresh off three consecutive years of record-breaking participation, the Mercedes Benz Corporate Run will take over Miami on April 25 following stops in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Each will race benefits their city's local chapter of the United Way, with $1 per participant going to the organization.

The 35th annual wellness journey will start at Bayfront Park, and offers beginners with an opportunity to ease into exercise and gain motivation to improve overall health, and competitive runners with an opportunity to lead their corporate team to victory. It’s a great platform to promote fitness and inspire your organization's employees. As they say - healthy employees create healthy companies!

Last year, 28,265 participants from 850 companies walked, jogged and ran in the 5K race (3.1 miles), proving the South Florida business community is one of the most driven and healthy around. The race night experience is a lively event, with businesses creating custom company T-shirts and tent decorations. Many companies invite others they do business with, or would like to do business with, to their tent for post-race refreshments and healthy food, too!
