Brew in Miami with MC Kitchen, Dogfish Head

Brew in Miami: This week’s episode features Dena Marino, chef-owner of MC Kitchen in Miami’s Design District, and her husband, Marcus Wade, who curates the restaurant’s deep selection of Dogfish Head craft beers. In fact, MC Kitchen has the biggest Dogfish selection in Florida. 

Beer Story: Delaware’s Dogfish Head markets its “off-centered ales,” and Indian Brown Ale is no exception. It’s an American brown ale with enough hoppiness to push the boundaries of an India pale ale and enough caramel malts to mimic a Scotch ale. 

Pairing: Indian Brown can go with savory or sweet foods. It’s a killer with the warm chocolate budino and banana-marsala sauce at MC Kitchen, 4141 NE 2nd Ave., Miami.
