It’s been a few months since our initial visit to Concrete Beach Brewing in Wynwood but a lot has changed.  First bottles of Rica & Stiltsville hit the shelves, then kegs started to roll out into the market and now the Social Hall has opened!

The first thing that you notice as you walk up is the vibrant seascape mural on the front wall.  Inside the gate, there is a large patio area with a dozen or so large tables and plenty of stools as well as the outside portion of the circular bar. Since this is Miami, they positioned  the bar so that it can be enjoyed both inside and out. Large rollup doors allow the interior to flow into the patio and create one big open space.

Even though it was only their second night of operation, Social Hall Manager Jesse Morris had his team working like they’d been together for years.  Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.  What more could you ask for?

There were five beers on tap that were brewed by Chris McGrath, Lead Brewer for Concrete Beach, and we tried them all. I liked his take on a California Common but his red ale, The Walls, was amazing. I had it on nitro and it had the smoothness and creaminess of a milkshake. Try it if you see it!

We were able to spend a few minutes chatting with Chris and could really sense his excitement  of having the doors open and the beer fermenting. Keep an eye out because in the coming weeks and months he’ll have more beers hitting the taps.
