For such an allegedly up-and-coming area, Downtown is shockingly short on drinking options—especially compared to places like Wynwood or South Beach. Sure, you can find upscale dining and booming nightclubs but a good place to grab a drink after work (other than our beloved Corner)—well, there ain’t much.
But hope is on the horizon in the form of Biscayne Bay Brewing Company. The Doral brewery is opening up a second location at the historic United States Post Office and Courthouse building (100 NE 1st Avenue) sometime this winter. It’ll be Downtown’s first brewery and this won’t be a small operation either. The taproom will take over 6,200-square-feet of the building’s third floor (once home to the Miami Weather Bureau Office). Biscayne Bay Brewing will use this location for small batch brewing and experimental beers.
So, when you’re sweating your butt off this summer waiting for the Metromover and desperately wishing you had some cool place to find air conditioning and a chilly beer, use this as motivation. Help is coming.
