Miami's Best Eats and Drinks this Weekend: Southern Social and Anise Beer Tasting
As the nation's beer junkies close out another run of American Craft Beer Week, it's time for a few more beer events and some serious carb unloading. We know this sounds scary. But after all that beer, it's necessary.
Ommegang Tap Takeover at OTC
Listen, we're not here to judge -- at all. If you're as obsessed with HBO's Game of Thrones as we think you are, it's OK. Because we're expecting the next watch party to be at your place. We'll bring the chips. You can bring the beer! The Ommegang, that is. But tonight, give it a taste if you haven't already. Brickell's OTC is hosting an Ommegang Tap Takeover and it's going on until 11:59p.m. tonight. Offerings include Three Philosophers, Hennepin, Rare VOS, Witte, Game of Thrones, and Abbey Ale. Seize that throne.
Beer Tasting at Total Wine
After a rough week at work, you owe it to yourself to relax a little bit. But you know full and well that the drive down South Dixie Highway around Pinecrest on is going to be a royal pain in the ass on your way home from work. So why not make it sweet? Make a necessary pit stop at Total Wine & More. While there, you can pick up a bottle of wine for dinner and get free beer samplings from the Brown distributing catalogue. The tastings will take place today from 4 to 7 p.m. By the way, it should go without saying, but don't get back in the car if you're feeling woozy. Duh.
Abita Southern Social
Did you think the beer happenings were finished? NEVER! Tonight, Yardbird Southern Table & Bar will be throwing an Abita Southern Social. From 4 to 8 p.m., the South Beach restaurant will serve $3 Abita Purple Haze and Andygator beers. If you sit at the bar (which you always should, because it's the coolest part of the restaurant,) you can indulge in creole bites that will pair perfectly with the Louisiana brews.
