Wynwood Brewing Company Official Launch September 23 at Gramps
It's finally here, folks. After two years of heavy anticipation, Wynwood Brewing Company has announced it will officially launch its beer September 23.

The launch will be in tandem with Miami Beer Tour, which is hosting Hopztoberfest at Gramps in Wynwood beginning at 8 p.m. On tap will be Wynwood's La Rubia Blonde Ale, Wynwood IPA, and Pop's Porter. Lots of swag will be tossed around, including Wynwood Brewing T-shirts and pint glasses.
The brewery has been open for business and brewing since receiving its manufacturer's license a little more than two weeks ago. However, they have not opened their taproom, but that is the next step. For now, at least, owner Luis Brignoni and crew have accomplished what they set out to do for more than two years: getting the brewery operational. Brignoni is exhausted but happy.
"The main mission is to brew and distribute, so that's what we're going to do," Brignoni said. "We just want to make Miami proud."
Last May, Wynwood Brewing signed with Brown Distributing, which will initiate Miami to Wynwood's first kegs. Brown will distribute to these accounts, with the possibility of others after the market has been tested:
- Wood Tavern
- Wynwood Kitchen and Bar
- Pride and Joy
- LoKal Burgers and Beer
- Abraxas Lounge
- The Abbey Brewing Company
- World of Beer Midtown
- World of Beer Kendall
- The Local
- The Butcher Shop
