I’m not going to even pretend to say I know everything there is to know about Miami. It’s really big, and I just don’t go there very often. It’s a shame, since there are a lot of good places to go, and it has a growing craft beer scene.
But it’s the cultural districts that have really given Miami it’s claim to fame. The biggest and best known is Little Havana, the (obviously) Cuban district.
And leave it to Doral’s Biscayne Bay Brewing to celebrate Little Havana their way, by using the Spanish translation of Little Havana to confuse me. And that, dear reader, is where they got the name of Pequeña Habana Pilsner (Pilsner, 5.9% ABV, 23 IBU).
Pequena Habana Pilsner by Biscayne Bay Brewing
As you can see, there’s a wonderfully pale golden color to the beer. The aroma is very crisp and has a slight but noticeable hop edge to it.
As for drinking, it’s beautifully light and very soft, There’s a light malt offering in the beer, and a moderate amount of hops to back that up, but it’s unmistakeably classic Pilsner. And it’s very well done.
It’s breweries like them that make me need to get to Miami a lot more often. And maybe invest in Rosetta Stone before I go.
