Miami’s best-known beer soon will be brewed in New Hampshire.
Wynwood Brewing, which opened in the Miami arts neighborhood in 2013 as Miami’s first full-production brewery, has signed a deal to outsource the brewing of its two most popular beers — La Rubia blonde ale and the prize-winning Pops Porter — to Craft Brew Alliance’s large-scale brewery in Portsmouth, NH. The deal also includes Wynwood Brewing selling a 24.5 percent minority stake to the publicly traded CBA.
Most of the beer brewed there will go toward fulfilling Miami-Dade’s unquenchable demand for Wynwood Brewing’s beer, owner Luis G. Brignoni said. It also means Wynwood Brewing can dedicate its Miami brewery to making a wider variety of beers that require more time and skill, including barrel-aged beers and limited and special releases.
