Aside from cooler temps and a little less sweating, the best part of bidding farewell to summer might be all the seasonally inspired fare.
This time of year, South Florida brewers show they’re ready for fall with a plethora of malty brews that begin to flow from the taps. Even if the Miami heat hasn’t exactly cooled to sweater weather, we’re still willing to pour a pint and pretend.
From ales with pumpkin and nutmeg to more subtle takes on seasonal flavors, there are plenty of locally crafted suds that are the liquid equivalent of cozy autumn vibes.
Here, listed in alphabetical order, are six fun fall brews to try before the season ends:
Born & Raised from Veza Sur Brewing Co.
55 NW 25th St., Miami
Heading out to watch the game this Sunday? There’s a beer for that: Veza Sur’s new “Born & Raised” blonde ale. A collaboration beer with the Miami Dolphins, the blonde ale is available for a limited time at the stadium and at your local supermarkets, restaurants, bars, and — of course — the Wynwood-based brewery.
La Tóxica from Spanish Marie Brewery
14251 SW 120th St., Miami
Known for its brightly hued, super sour fruited brews, Spanish Marie Brewery never disappoints when it comes to seasonal surprises. This month, the brewers channeled fall flavors with “La Tóxica,” a vibrant, green ale conditioned with green apples. Available on draft or in cans to go.
