Miami is a melting pot. You'll hear it said time and time again. It's because the fabric of Miami has and always will be stitched together by outside influences and experiences. People brought the experiences, cultures, and skills they had built up in other countries, cities, and States, and helped create this city we now know as Miami. Now, the aptly named M.I.A. Brewing Co., is looking to recreate this phenomenon through its beer with Mike Demetrus, formerly brewer at Finch's Brewing in Chicago, at the helm. Bringing influences from San Francisco and Chicago, two of the countries most established food and beer scenes, to our virgin market, M.I.A. is poised to deliver a phenomenal product that hits the essence of what Miami is - a melting pot.
Putting quality and consistency at the forefront, M.I.A. will bring South Florida beers that you can drink alone or pair with the most elegant of meals. Striking balance between tradition and the future, the core lineup (see our beer review page for more info) pays respect to what the style of each offering is supposed to embody all while putting M.I.A.'s own stamp right on the forefront.
Can you tell I'm excited? You should be too.
