What could be better than “Handmade in Miami” brews in the Wynwood Arts District during Art Basel? On Wednesday, December 4th the Wynwood Brewing Company, the first production craft brewery in the city of Miami, will have a Grand Opening of their Tasting Room at 565 NW 24th Street starting at 4 p.m. During the festivities there will be a concert with Cog Nomen and Tony Laurencio (from Afrobeta and Beatmachines) and the unveiling of amazing art from notable muralists who have been working in the space for the last couple of weeks like Claudio Picasso (CP1), Eva Ruiz, Trek Six, Ernesto Kunde (KundeArt), Ruben Ubiera, Casey Waterman, and Daniel Fila (Krave), among many.
For the past several weeks the WBCo team has been working feverishly with new brewmaster Nik Mebane creating new seasonal brews to offer for the Tap Room opening. They have also been busy commissioning excellent work from renowned artists in the area to create a space that is representative of the Wynwood Arts District. Part of the funding for the murals and art projects was provided by the Awesome Foundation.
The Wynwood Brewing Team is comprised by Luis Brignoni, Founder, his father Luis “Pops” Brignoni, Co-Founder, Brewmaster Nik Mebane, Assistant Brewer David Rodriguez, Tap Room Manager Alex Gutierrez and Victor, Cellar Packaging Manager.
