Beervibe Drinks Local in Miami

We at BeerVibe love arts and craft. The natural appeal of Miami, its tropical and colorful beauty, draws millions of people all year to enjoy this hot place. In the middle of its concrete jungle, however it boasts an awesome place. An art district called Wynwood of greater Miami. Here commissioned artists have literally thrown, brushed, and sprayed paint, creating an urban ARTED UP landscape. Appropriately then, it has become a birthing ground of artisan craft beer. So our first beer to sample in this drink local series is La Rubia (the blondie) Ale produced by Wynwood Brewery. How did the Beervibe crew enjoy it?
