Wynwood Brewing Company’s walls are lined with artwork. There a couple of board games and trivia games lay on a table to play. There is also a pair of acoustic guitars available to play. After a few high octane brews you can let out your inner folk singer, or rock star. One warning, if you bring a six year old, bring a cell phone or I Pad with some games loaded on them, otherwise they get bored quickly.
Florida Beer Week ran through January 18 through January 25 and Wynwood debuted a new beer everyday that week at 6pm. Father Francisco a strong Belgian ale, 8.6% abv. was debuted the night before we arrived so I tried that one right away. It was poured into a snifter and was cloudy golden yellow. Its aroma is loaded with yeasty and toasty notes. The palate has some hop notes and some citrus as well. It is dry and crisp with a medium biscuit finish.
My wife, a lover of dark beers had the Pops Porter to start. Dark brown with a thin tan head, Pop’s Porter weighs in at 6.2% abv. Aromas include espresso, dark chocolate and nuttiness, all backed with roasted malt. The palate follows the nose and has a pleasant dry short finish. My wife loved it, and so did I, one of my favorites of the day.
She also had the Wynwood IPA 7.2% abv. that has a bright amber color with a khaki colored head. The nose is filled with grapefruit, pine and malt. The palate is pure IPA, citrus floral hops, pine, grapefruit peel with a crisp refreshing finish. The Pop’s Porter and Wynwood IPA are brewed year round and worth the trip to the taproom by themselves.
Finally 6pm arrived and I was ready for the Carmen Miranda 7.2% abv., the nights debut beer. This is an IPA with mango and passion fruit added. The appearance was cloudy amber with an off white head. The citrusy aroma came courteously of the hops; light tropical fruit lingered in the background. The palate was hoppy citrus with the mango and passion fruit blended in. The finish was crisp with sweet notes. Just like Carmen Miranda’s headgear, her namesake beer highlights tropical fruits.
Take a trip to Wynwood Brewery’s taproom and enjoy some great beers. Food isn’t served, but if you feel hungry when you are done there are plenty of restaurants that have opened up in the Wynwood neighborhood.
