Amidst the continuing growth of the craft beer industry, Biscayne Bay Brewing Company is placing itself on the cusp of Downtown Miami’s revitalization efforts by becoming the first brewery and taproom in the area.
Arguably Miami’s most historic section, this locale mixes rich municipal roots with modern Miami flair. Downtown features some of Miami’s most historic landmarks, futuristic structures and now the region’s largest transportation hub. Biscayne Bay Brewing Company’s flagship location will bring a “new classic” factor to this historic property and area. The brewery will be located on the third floor once known for housing The Miami Weather Bureau Office where it served as the first national weather service, which sprawls across an astonishing 6,200 square feet. This one of a kind space will house an entirely new concept in the Miami brewing scene.
From a micro brewing system custom fabricated for the layout, small batches of artisanal and experimental beers will constantly be produced and rotated for customers. Miamians will continuously find innovative and new flavor creations to enjoy.
“Downtown Miami is diversifying and incorporating new elements onto the scene through new restaurants and bars, co-working spaces like We Work and more entertainment concepts” says Jose Mallea, Owner of Biscayne Bay Brewing Company. “We are excited to be in the forefront of the new wave of Downtown Miami’s Cultural District, bringing the first brewery to Downtown Miami for locals and tourists.”
Daniel Peña, Principal at Post Office Development LLC., and also the director of Stambul Construction Company, helped make this partnership possible. Peña has extensive experience working with historical properties, being responsible for the remodeling of the Langford Hotel in downtown, which was originally known as Miami National Bank. It was important to Peña and to Post Office Development, LLC. to find a flagship tenant that would respect the history of this landmark and help energize the downtown evolution, which is exactly what Mallea and Biscayne Bay Brewing Company plan to do.
