Beervibe Drinks Local in Miami

Fishing, a hobby and sport of many people in South Florida, traditionally requires packing the right gear to catch a big one. A cooler with ice is also a very important item to bring along as it serves to keep fresh caught fish, and the beer, cold. (We might suggest two separate containers for the caught fish and the beer) Let’s face it, to endure the hot outdoor fun often requires a cold beer, and Big Rod Coconut Ale is the perfect beer to bring along.

Ending Comments

I encourage all of my South Floridian neighbors to make their way down to Schnebly Winery, A.K.A Miami Brewing Company, and experience tropical splendor in person. You won’t regret it. For any given weekend you are going out fishing, bringing a Big Rod Coconut Ale six pack is a great idea.
