The secret is out. Our prospectors struck gold, liquid gold! Where was the site of this seemingly miraculous event? In the deep, bottomless wells of beer at, no other than, Wynwood!

On Saturday, the Wynwood section of Greater Miami witnessed the floodgates of beer open, releasing a copious bounty of craft beer onto elated crowds attending the very first annual Sprung! Spring Beer Festival. The stage was set for our sizzling, hot Miami sun and frigid, icy brews to meld into the perfect union. The resulting chemistry was nothing short of epic.

Wynwood will never be the same. The trendy art district already boasts fantastic microbreweries such as the likes of Wynwood Brewing Company. Now claiming to be the “little sister” of Coconut Grove’s Grovetoberfest, Sprung! succeeded in creating a lively and memorable event.

With 300 craft brews to sample, food trucks with a line-up of guest chefs, and games such as a giant clock swinging its arm and knocking participants off its face and onto theirs, they succeeded in putting the “Fest” in Beerfest. All the while, tasters grooved to the talented live beats of Entourage.

To keep this report short and “stout,” we will conclude by featuring 3 memorable selections.
Only whetting your appetite, we share, and torture you with, our shortest and sweetest, first impressions. Stay tuned for our full reviews to come.
