Pincho Factory has partnered with Wynwood Brewing Company to create a collaborative brew that commemorates the four year anniversary of Pincho Factory’s first store, which CEO Nedal Ahmad admits to opening with only six dollars and twenty seven cents left in the bank.

Named after that little known fact, the Pincho Factory 627 Ale is a Farmhouse Saison brewed with Key Lime peel and Coriander.

This ale couldn’t have come to fruition had it not been for Ahmad’s entrepreneurial dream, which ironically began as a Fourth of July joke. Never one to back down from a challenge, he took the leap of faith and turned that joke into a mission. By November 6, 2010, he was opening his first restaurant in Miami. From having pocket change in the account, to working on the third location and national franchising, Pincho Factory couldn’t be prouder to now have a namesake beer. “The idea is to continue building on South Florida’s beer culture and have local collaborations to achieve those goals,” said Ahmad.

When they got together with Wynwood Brewing, they agreed to do a Saison, which Nedal admits to being one of his favorites. “We discussed what we were looking for in terms of flavor profile, drinkability and how we wanted it to pair well with our menu. As a testament to their talent, Wynwood Brewing nailed it on their first try,” said Ahmad. The end result was an unfiltered, golden colored ale with an amazing fruity aroma.

Saisons typically use peppercorn and orange peel, and they are traditionally yeast forward beers, which gives it a spicy/peppery characteristic. “We wanted to incorporate Pincho's “sazón” with Wynwood Brewing Company’s commitment to tradition. We used key limes instead of orange peels, because we wanted to use something that was local to us. We also included coriander, because Nedal mentioned they use coriander to season their delicious burgers. What we came up with was a 627 Ale, which was slightly spicy,” said Luis Brignoni, president of Wynwood Brewing Company.

A pint of the 627 Ale will retail for $6.27, and will be available at both Pincho Factory locations, just in time for their anniversary on November 6th.

Pincho Factory is located at 9860 SW 40th Street, Miami, Fl 33165 and 30 Giralda Avenue, Coral Gables, Fl 33134. The third location is currently under construction in Hialeah, Florida.
