Twenty seventeen could be the year Miami fell deeply, madly in love with brunch. This year, nearly every restaurant offered a weekend meal complete with seemingly endless rounds of mimosas.
From caviar and champagne to drag queens to a Viet-Cajun mashup of flavors, these are Miami’s best brunches of 2017.
5. Biscayne Bay Brewing’s Sunday Brunch Party Offers $10 Unlimited Mimosas. Biscayne Bay Brewing in Doral recently launched Yacht Rock’s Sunday Brunch, a weekly party offering build-your-own breakfast burritos, bottomless guava mimosas, a live DJ, and $1 pours of Kapitan’s Kolsch or rosé. Sundays, the brewery swaps its regular small-bites menu for a selection of breakfast items under $10 each. 8000 NW 25th St #500, Doral; 305-381-5718; biscaynebaybrewing.com.
Soak it up, South Florida. These are the glory days where we get to incessantly post those ubiquitous weather maps where the whole country is blue, save for our little orange blob at the bottom. It’s also when the best events, concerts, and general fun times make their way to the place where summer goes for winter. The traffic might be a little worse, and the crowds might be a little more intense, but the season from Christmas to spring break is still why we all live here. To make the most of it, here are the best things to do in South Florida this winter, from feeding yourself into oblivion to witnessing murder during sex.

BISCAYNE BAY BREWING COMPANY IS QUICKLY EXPANDING INTO THE RETAIL MARKET SERVING UP THE BEST ALE IN THE 305.
BY BECKY RANDEL
Unless you’ve been hiding under a barrel, you’ve likely noticed that local craft beer and homegrown breweries have become a boom – ing business in South Florida. Case in point: Biscayne Bay Brewing Company has quickly grown from a direct-to-restaurant cult favorite to a full distributor of bottled varieties with a popular tap room. “Miami is still a very young craft beer market and I am confident we will continue to grow our fan base of loyal craft beer drinkers,” says co-founder and President Jose Maella. Based in Doral, BBBC is a 15,000-square-foot facility serving 10,000 beers per week in its thriving tap room while distributing to more than 300 accounts from Palm Beach to Key West. Their three bottled flavors—Kapitan’s Kolsch, Siren’s Saison and Miami Pale Ale—are sold at more than 30 retail locations, such as Total Wine & ABC Liquors. For a company that has doubled its production since opening the tap room in 2016, Maella says their top priority is maintaining consistency and flavor across all of their products. “We want our customers to appreciate the diversity of flavor in beer and always know that they can try our product with confidence at their favorite bar, restaurant or local store and it will be exactly the same experience every single time.” Need more proof? The ales and lagers themselves are made with hops and malts sourced from around the world, infused with the waters of the Biscayne Bay aquifer. The line currently boasts six core offerings and a total of 16 unique styles in the tap room, including aged barrel beers. We’d tap that. 8000 NW 25th St., Doral, biscaynebaybrewing.com
