June 2019: After experiencing rapid growth, the spate of new Miami breweries has somewhat stabilized. Our list of favorites continues to serve up top beers and consistent service, but we did manage to add two breweries to the list: newcomer Tripping Animals in Doral, a solid spot for adventurous beer drinkers, and the laid-back Legacy Caribbean Craft Brewery, which has flown under the radar in Opa-Locka since 2012. Impressive.
The best Miami breweries are as diverse and colorful as the people who drink inside them. Spanning from the western reaches of Doral to the paint-splashed streets of Wynwood, each has its own personality and flavor. Many of their brews can be found on taps inside the best bars in Miami or served alongside dishes at the best restaurants in Miami. And even if you’re more of best wine bars in Miami, you’ll find something to love at each of these Miami breweries.
