After sorting through dozens of qualified entries, the brewing team at Wynwood’s new Concrete Beach Brewery has selected the winner of their first “What Brews You?” contest.
The winner, Dave Butler of Tamarac, FL suggested “a mojito cream ale. Light ABV, with big flavors of lime and a slight mint undercurrent. Possibly with some aging in rum-soaked oak.”
Dave will now have the opportunity to make his beer concept come to life with the help of the brewing team at the soon-to-be-open Concrete Beach Brewery in Wynwood. The finished version of Dave’s creation will be on tap at the Social Hall once it has been brewed. In the meantime, Dave will work closely with head brewer Chris McGrath and team on finalizing the recipe and planning for the official brew. In addition to brewing his beer with the team, he will also receive a Concrete Beach kegerator, tap handle and a case of Concrete Beach pint glasses.
The “What Brews You?” contest was a call out for fun, unique ideas for beer that embodies the spirit and flavors of Miami and to show that beer can be brewed with practically anything, from mango, to chocolate, to Elderflower.
The second “What Brews You?” contest will continue through May 31, 2015. For those interested in entering, visit the contest page on the Concrete Beach website or Facebook page and fill out the entry form.
