About

"Beer makes you feel the way you ought to feel without beer." -Henry Lawson


Who are we?

We’re the Miami Brew Bus!

We want to introduce you to Miami beer! Longtime friends, coworkers, and avid craft beer drinkers Cici, David, and Kush grew with the Miami beer scene with the opening of Kush’s restaurant LoKal. They forged relationships with local breweries and always put integrity over quantity. In the short two years LoKal has been open the craft beer scene has grown exponentially. With the opening of several new breweries in late 2013 and early 2014 alone they began wondering what was missing…
So while enjoying a cold one and contemplating the booming direction of craft beer in Miami, Cici, David, and Kush began hatching a plan to educate tourists and locals alike on what our beautiful city has to offer; and Miami Brew Bus was born! Miami, known more for our wine, cocktails, and party scene, was slow to catch on to the craft beer revolution. But like in all things Miami style, we’re doing it big! Using local tropical fruits and exotic ingredients Miami is breaking the traditional mold making a truly unique beer experience.




The Team

It’s Simple… Beer is What We Do

CiCi & David

Cici and her fiancé David jumped on the craft beer train after many years of drinking bland mainstream beers. Dissatisfied and growing bored with the taste of fizzy yellow water they discovered their first craft beer on a trip out to Delaware. On a whim they took a tour of the Dogfish brewery and never looked back. For years now, they plan vacations around which breweries to visit. They have visited breweries in California, Chicago, Indianapolis, North Carolina and of course every brewery in South Florida – some several times over. David turned his passion into his work when Kush hired him as beverage manager of LoKal. He carved a niche for himself in the craft beer community and hopes to keep growing with the exciting movement that is finally happening in Miami! This is Cici and David’s first business venture together and they know their love for each other combined with a passion for all things ‘hoppy’ will prove for a truly fun bus ride!

Kush

Owner of LoKal restaurant in Coconut Grove, Kush was tired of the typical Miami restaurants, known for its flashy scene and overpriced drinks. He set out to change that by opening an eco-friendly, farm-to-table concept using all local products and making everything from scratch. Since they opened in December of 2011 they have won many awards including: Most Eco-Friendly restaurant, best burger, best chicken and waffles, best veggie burger, most dog-friendly restaurant, earned a 27 Zagat rating, best restaurant and many many more accomplishments. Kush realized the dire need for the infusion of craft beer into Miami and with the help of David as his beverage manager, they have begun to change the culture for craft beer drinkers in Miami. LoKal is the place to be for craft beer drinkers, having not the biggest, but the best beer selection including a reserve beer list of aged beers for the true beer geeks. A true foodie and beer connoisseur, Kush strives to bring recognition to Miami.

Breweries

Funky Buddha Brewery

Founded in 2010, Funky Buddha Brewery began as a brewpub, lounge, and hookah bar in Boca Raton, Florida. Initially brewing on a small, 40-gallon system, the brewpub began creating truly unique culinary-inspired beers, reaching worldwide acclaim such as 27th best brewery in the world according to RateBeer! Three short years later Buddha opened its 20,000 sq ft production brewery in the heart of South Florida, focusing on the continued use of big, bold flavors. You can find their flagships beers Hop Gun IPA and Floridian Hefeweizen on tap at the brewery year-round, and if you’re lucky enough to try a limited release you certainly won’t forget it! No Crusts Peanut Butter & Jelly Brown Ale, Blueberry Cobbler Ale, and Passionfruit Berlinerweiss are a few of our favorites. Just sayin’!


Wynwood Brewing Co.

Miami’s first production brewery recently opened in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District. What used to be a warehouse and manufacturing district, Wynwood is now home to one of the largest street art exhibits in the world. Following the theme of art in beer making it was extremely important for the founders of Wynwood Brewing to be located in this exceptional neighborhood. Brewed with Miami’s hot weather in mind, their flagship beers, Pop’s porter, La Rubia Blond Ale, and Wynwood IPA, are light bodied, and crisp, ah makes us wanna go to the beach!


M.I.A. Brewing Co.

A very special part of our tour brings you to M.I.A. Brewing where you will be able to witness a brewery being born! M.I.A. Brewing has begun construction and estimates a January 2014 opening. Although the brewery hasn’t become operational they’ve already made a name for themselves at beer festivals and special events with their flagships Domino Pilsner, Freestyle Wheat Pale Ale, Castaway Kolsche, and the M.I.A. IPA. Yes, there will be beer and yes, hardhats are required!
