Sergio's, the self-styled new American cafe with Latin flavor, is bringing some of Broward County's finest to Doral with a Beer Flights + Delights pairing this Friday, July 11.

For the price of an entree and a couple of drinks out, the Cuban-American restaurant will offer four different "bites," or appetizer-like samplers, each artfully paired with a full pint of beer from The Funky Buddha Brewery. If you've never been to one of the six Sergio's locations, which stretch from Hialeah Gardens to Kendall, this might be the meal to try out what they have to offer.
First up is a margherita thin crust pizza paired with the Pina Colada Wheat, infused with real pineapple and coconut. Then it's on to friturita de malaga, a traditional Cuban appetizer made of fried malanga and served with cilantro sauce, paired with Buddha's unfiltered wheat ale the Floridian Hefeweizen.
The third combination starts with the east coast styled Hop Gun IPA, rich in tropical hops and a big malty backbone, which pairs up with the mini frita sliders, small versions of the famous mildly spicy Cuban hamburger garnished with onions, potato fries, and ketchup. Finally, in an effort not to leave your sweet tooth hanging, chill out with some Azucar sweet cream ice cream (that delicious sweet treat from Little Havana) paired with the highly sought after No Crusts peanut butter and jelly ale.
This decadent offering is only $40 a person, with no reservations required. Just show up at 5 p.m., ask for the deal by name, and treat it like a straight-forward summer prix-fixe menu.
