Taps are finally flowing at Biscayne Bay Brewing in Doral.
The 2-year-old brewery, which has been brewing and distributing a host of its beers locally, opened its tasting room after more than a year’s delay last week, owner Jose Mallea said.

“Just seeing the place full and the immediate satisfaction of people trying our beers, it was awesome,” Mallea said.
Biscayne Bay got the call Aug. 3 that the city of Doral had given its final approval. The next morning, they were open. More than 200 people came in to sit in the sleek, relaxed space with expansive natural wood counters, reclaimed wood walls, warm Edison lights and a glassed-in room where several of their beers are barrel aged for richer flavors.

Four of Biscayne Bay’s most labor-intensive beers will be on tap this weekend, when the taproom opens from Thursday through Sunday. They are La Salida, a bourbon barrel-aged double IPA; El Roble, a whiskey barrel-aged rich Scotch Ale; Buenas Noches, a whiskey barrel-aged imperial stout; and a Buenas Noches variant treated with chocolate and vanilla.
A flight of four, 4-ounce pours of these barrel aged beers costs $8.
