I loath Miami. Not only do I loath it, but I FEAR it. Thatís right, Fear and Loathing in Miami. With that being said, Iíve actually found a decent bar that I can hang at. The selection is great and the crowd isnít too pack like every other bar in Miami. Check it out. The owner knows his beer, thatís for sure.

I went this past Friday for their 3rd Anniversary and the tapping of the Sierra Nevada Rhymes Wit that the owner helped brew at a camp at Sierra Nevada. I along with a few friends pull up and I liked the way the place looked. Itís a converted house in a residential neighborhood. It was pretty busy already around 9. It took us 30 minutes easy to get a bartender to acknowledge us despite being looked at numerous times at the end of the bar with no drinks in hand. There were 3 bartenders on and they all seemed to just be paying attention to the middle of the bar and not the ends. Then we were told there was no more Gonzo on tap but just a bit later saw it being poured from. Luckily Diego, the owner, made better later on in the night. Yes it was busy but 3 bartenders at a small bar did not all need to be bunched in the middle of the bar, ignoring people on the sides that are waiting. The selection was really nice and well laid out on a chalk board with pricing that seemed fair. Once the guys from Fresh Beer showed up we had a real good time. We shared some beers with them and Diego and had a good time. I would definitely go again. I just hope the bartenders spread out a bit. Edit: I went there again last night and it wasnít nearly as busy before and the service was pitiful. I feel bad because the owner is so nice but he needs to do something here. It took almost 10 minutes to be asked what I wanted while others on either side of me get served. Then 10 minutes after asking for the beer other new people are served. Completely forgotten.

A favorite spot on the beach! The beer selection is far better than average down there. Diego, the owner is incredibly friendly & knows his stuff. Very comfertable interiors, & even a stoop on which you can pearch out front and enjoy the evening. No kitchen, but no sweat. They donít mind if you have something delivered in...

An outstanding beer bottle selection (as well as wine and sake) is written up on a huge blackboard on the back wall next to the bar. But donít rely soley on that as they have what looked like twice as many bottles in a beer list behind the bar. We went in at around 8pm and sat on one of their extremely comfy couches next to a wall-mounted TV and got into talking with Diego, the owner and manager. He knows beer and beer culture and loves talking about it with other enthusiats. My favorite bar in Miami Beach, if not all of Miami. I only wish they had a cask or two. Return: Yes.

This place has a good selection, including a good wine & sake list. Service is very, very slow on weekends and the bar staff is hit or miss. The frosted glassware thing makes me feel like Iím at a sports bar, not good for every beer. Best for maybe before/after a dinner date or nightcap, when you want a nice beer but will probably not stay too long.

Dark, smokey lounge with a couple of couches and sports on the TV. they play different types of music on different nights of the week - see their myspace page. Big selection of bottles and a small but good selection of taps. Diego, the owner, is really nice and is really into beer. The only drawbacks for me were it was too smokey and a bit pricey ($7 Torpedo bottle, $9 Old Guardian draft). A cool place to hang out for a couple of beers, but not a place to go for a long session.

MUCHO expensive! Be prepared to lose your wallet. I ordered a stout, and the girl served it in a frosted pint glass, so I had to wait about twenty minutes for it to warm up. But a damn cool bar none-the-less. Very large selection of bottles. They had a nice collection of rare beers behind the bar, but donít even bother asking, they donít carry any to actually let you drink. And make sure to check out the picture hanging outside of the bathroom (hint: look for the birdie ;)

If you are looking for a laid back place with couches and comfortable chairs and almost 150 beers in the bottle and a dozen taps then this is the place for you. Service gets dicey when the place is busy, but the owner LOVES beer and is very knowledgeable. One downfall is it is a big expensive. Still a cool place.

My Favorite Beer Hangout. I work the night shift down the street and came for a beer tasting and instantly fell in love. I have since gotten all of my coworkers hooked and we often come during our work break and again when we get out at midnight. They have over a hundred items on the drink menu, approx. 70% beer, 25% wine, and 5% sake. They keep there glasses frozen and have an official glass for about half of the beers on the menu. The place is dark and perfectly willing to entertain your shenanigans until 5 in the morning. The owner, Diego, has had every beer in the menu and can recommend or describe them all along with either of the two sexy waitresses whom I have seen there. Prices leave a little to be desired, but thatís only because most of us know what some of these beers cost in a liquor store. But for this location I am willing to spend what they ask (plus Diego will let you sample whats on tap)
