Brew News – Wynwood Brewing Releasing San Francisco Belgian Ale Wednesday

I am always excited to see when small breweries start to release limited edition, small batch bottles. And one of the most exciting breweries in Miami, Wynwood Brewing, will be doing just that this Wednesday, Nov. 5th.

Wynwood is releasing San Francisco, a Belgian Golden Strong Ale (and those zany belgian ales are good at being strong) that’s been aged in bourbon barrels for 6 months. The release happens at 6 PM at the Wynwood Brewery Tap Room, located at 565 NW 24 St. in Miami.

Why San Francisco? Well, Wynwood Brewing has decided to be generally pretty awesome and name the bottles they’ve started producing the Shipwreck Series, with each release named after one of the shipwrecks found in Florida coastal waters. This beer is named after the San Francisco, or if you prefer the long name, Nuestra Señora del Rosario San Francisco Javier y San Antonio de Padua. It’s a Spanish Galleon that sank in 1733 in the relatively shallow waters off Long Key. It’s apparently a gorgeous wreck if you’re ever interested in diving it.

The bottles are $20, limit 2 per person, and only 400 were made. This means I won’t be able to get one. 😦 But maybe Wynwood would hold one for me?

Or I can buy a boat and sink it…

Drink Florida Craft,
