What started out as a blog that celebrated life in the Wynwood neighborhood, has organically evolved into a festival that’s poised to raise the bar on all the things that Miami loves –art, music, fashion and food! Wynwood Life will take place in the hip Wynwood district on 6th Avenue, between 22nd and 24th Streets, from April 25th-27th. Trek6, the celebrated artist who has become synonymous with the area one wall at a time, will commemorate the festival by designing and painting the inaugural poster and wall.
When I found out that Shelah from Om Brew Yoga is visiting some of our local breweries and teaching yoga classes, I asked her if she'd like to do a guest review. Hopefully this is just the first of many! Here's what she had to say...
When Mike first approached me to write up a review, I have to admit, I was a bit intimidated. In the craft beer world, I am a baby. A newbie. I have only been a convert for a little over a year and a half and getting me convinced that beer was better than wine (which was my love at the time) was quite a task for my hubby. Happily, I realized that good craft beer would not be the death of me and I embraced this new found passion.
We paid a visit to 3 Daughters Brewing on our trip through St. Petersburg. They are located in an old plumbing supply warehouse near the Grand Central District. They opened up in December 2013.
We were immediately greeted with a friendly hello the minute we walked in. These guys put some real thought into putting the taproom and brewery together. The taproom has a modern, upscale feel that is very comfortable. The large taproom takes up what was probably the showroom or reception area for the prior inhabitants in the front corner of the building.
