A cramped airport bar with a poor "selection" of beers. It’s fitting that this place is located in an airport as crummy as Miami International. During my visit there were only 4 beers on tap: Stella, Bud Lite, Sam Adams Winter Lager, and Rebel IPA. Bottles of Corona are also available if you’re feeling really masochistic. Food is provided by the Pizza Hut adjoined to the bar. Prices are what you’d expect given the location (roughly $8.50 per 16oz pour). My barman was actually pretty chill, so at least I can’t complain about the service. Overall, a pretty dismal place. If you’re in Miami Airport and looking for decent beer, abandon all hope.

Typical airport bar that happens to bear a brewer’s name. Only 6 taps, and they’re not all Sam Adams beers. Estrella Damm was one of a couple non-SA beers on tap. The SA offerings were more of their mundane ones like Boston Lager. After attending a Sam Adams "rare beer" event last night, they have the ability to make this more than it is and hope they do. There are enough airport bars that cater to the swill-guzzling masses; an airport is a high traffic, high diversity venue which has the potential to increase awareness of Sam Adams’ range of offerings.
