North Miami’s Mayor and Council to Host Kick-Off Reception Friday Evening

North Miami Mayor, Dr. Smith Joseph and the City Council invite the public to attend a free reception celebrating the start of the 2017 North Miami BrewFest, on Friday, Dec. 8, from 6-9 p.m. at the City’s MOCA Courtyard, 770 NE 125th St.

The 2017 North Miami BrewFest is set for Saturday, Dec. 9, from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. in the MOCA Plaza, 770 NE 125th St. For the second consecutive year, the City of North Miami and Florida International University’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management are hosting this annual craft beer festival, which began as a FIU student project in 2012. A five-year title agreement was recently signed by both FIU and the City of North Miami to continue the partnership, and for use of MOCA Plaza as the event location. This is the first year MOCA North Miami has served as the event venue.

This year’s festival will feature 120 different craft beers from about 40 brewers. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about craft brewing through educational seminars conducted by industry experts. All attendees will be able to enjoy unlimited craft beer tastings and live music. General admission ticketholders can purchase meals at various food trucks on-site. VIP admission includes early entrance, food from local restaurants, a limited edition t-shirt, backpack and mug. Proceeds benefit FIU's Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management and its mission of continuing to influence brewing science education and innovation in the craft beer industry.     

In 2017, two breweries, Descarga Brewing Company and Lost City Brewing, signed leases to set-up shop in Downtown North Miami, near NE 125th Street from NE 13th and 14th avenues. Descarga and Lost City Brewing will be present at North Miami BrewFest.
