The Brew Bus starts the party bright and early at 11:30am every Saturday and Sunday. Participants meet up at Kush in Wynwood and start the day drinking some Daddy's Brews. You mingle and next thing you know you're on your way to beer heaven.
First stop: Funky Buddha. This brewery has already been ranked to have one of the best beers in the world. So it's no coincidence that this place is the first stop on the Miami Brew Bus tour. You get a full behind-the-scenes tour of their operation and get to sample three of the beers that they're working on. Beers sampled included their Doc Brown Ale, Floridian Hefeweizen and their Hop Gun IPA. I've had the pleasure of making the pilgrimage to Funky Buddha on a few occasions and every beer I've ever had has been nothing short of fantastic. From the award winning Maple Bacon Coffee Porter to the Sweet Potato Casserole there is a creative beer here for EVERYONE.
By now you've got a light buzz going and it's time to hit up brewery number two, MIA Brewing. At the time of my visit, MIA was in the middle of construction and no where near opening. That didn't stop the team at MIA Brewing from giving us a tour and offering us three different beer samples. It was extremely neat to see the process of creating a brewery and all of the construction it takes to put an operation like that together.
Last stop on the tour was Wynwood Brewery, the first official brewery in the 305. This family owned and operated brewery is brand new and in the heart of Wynwood. By the time we got there, we were all rocking a good buzz from the day's beer consumption. Brew Bus participants were welcomed into the breweries tap room where one of the owners, Alex G Money, explains their journey and their beer. All the while tasting three of their brews. The tour wrapped up at around 5pm and back at Kush, just in time to dig into some food to soak up all of that beer.
