The number of restaurants serving great beers has grown exponentially. It wasn’t so long ago that Amstel Light was the exotic option at many restaurants and even liquor stores had a less than satisfactory beer selection. Problem solved though. You now have places like Total Wine on 140-something street and Biscayne in North Miami. And restaurants like Bin 18, not to mention the brand-spanking-new Democratic Republic of Beer right behind the Arsht Center (400+ beers). Anyways, here are two recent discoveries that have quickly become favorites:
1) Dale’s Pale Ale (available at Red Light): It’s a fancy pale ale in an aluminum can. There’s just something awesome about this. For one thing, you can shotgun it.
2) Tripel Karmeliet (available at Bin 18): This is a smooth beer, plus it is served in a chalice just like Lil Jon drinks out of. Please don’t crunk and drive, though.
